After a long spell of inactivity, it looks Bobby Lashley will return from injury just in time for Wrestlemania 38.
(WARNING THIS ARTICLE WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS)
The April pay-per-view is undisputedly the most significant event on the wrestling calendar. The momentous occasion draws in fans from around the globe with the best possible match-ups. Each year, the company strives to bring back the best possible superstars and even throws some celebrities into the mix.
On Day one of the weekend-long extravaganza, Jackass star Johny Knoxville collides with Sami Zayn. At the same time, YouTube sensation Logan Paul joins forces with The Miz to take on Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik. Fans also eagerly await the collision between ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and Kevin Owens at the ‘KO Show.’
Initially, it looked like one of their biggest stars would miss out. But luckily for the WWE Universe, he could return earlier than first thought.
Bobby Lashley is back for WrestleMania
On February 19, Lashley was scheduled to defend his title in the Elimination Chamber. But after Seth Rollins launched Austin Theory into his pod, the champion had to retire from the match. In reality, as per No DQ, he’d injured his shoulder before the contest and, therefore, couldn’t compete.
It appeared as if Lashley would have to sit on the sidelines for months, but luckily for fans, he’s recovered a lot sooner than expected. The 45-year-old is lined up to fight one of the most fearsome men in the entire promotion.
Who does the WWE want Bobby Lashley to fight at Wrestlemania?
Fightful Select reports that the two-time world champion will battle it out with 7 ft 3 giant Omos. The Nigerian has steamrolled competition since he began competing in the WWE. Nobody has beaten the terrifying athlete, who kept his undefeated streak alive after dismantling Commander Azeez and Apollo Crews in a handicap match on Monday Night Raw.
Following his victory, he called out anybody who has the guts to take him on at Wrestlemania. And it looks like Lashley is up to the challenge.
On either April 2 or 3 at the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas, the former WWE titleholder will return to the ring to take on one of the most dangerous challenges of his career. Although nobody has beaten Omos yet, Lashley is an entirely different animal to anyone he’s ever faced before.
