Despite his voice being quite annoying during Bobby Lashley’s matches, I love this pairing of both Lashley and Lio Rush, with Rush being his manager. This pairing has given Lashley a new career direction and probably the push he needs. Prior to this pairing it appeared that his career was not going anywhere after losing to Roman Reigns back in July with the winner receiving a title shot against Brock Lesnar, who was the World Wrestling Entertainment Universal Champion at the time.
From there Lashley seemed to be going down the mid-card route which disappointed many fans including myself because Lashley is worth more than mid-card status. As a long-time WWE fan, it irked me seeing talent like Lashley go to waste being used as a mid-card status wrestler.
Even though this is not the way many of us would not like to see Lashley being pushed, it looks to be the only way that WWE knows how to because many view Lashley as mundane in the ring and unable to captivate a crowd on the microphone.
The thing that makes me happy is that WWE is pushing Bobby Lashley, which is always great to see because he is not going to waste. Whether you are mad about this push or not, you have to realize that it is entertainment, and this is not his true character outside of the WWE ring.
I would imagine that with the addition of Rush chanting Lashley’s name, fans will keep awake during Lashley’s matches now because many complained how boring they are. And besides, Rush reminds me of an upgraded swaggier version of Jimmy Hart minus the megaphone.
I guess all we can do is just sit back and enjoy this new career direction for Lashley and hope that it goes the route of a showdown for the WWE Universal Championship, preferably against Lesnar.
