Bobby Lashley Wants Another Shot At The WWE Championship

He wants another match with Drew McIntyre

Over the past year, Bobby Lashley has been booked strongly on WWE TV. He is the reigning United States Champion and has secured victories over the likes of Apollo Crews, Ricochet, Riddle and Jeff Hardy.

One of the few blemishes on his record was a loss to Drew McIntyre at Backlash 2020, though, and Lashley recently told Sports Illustrated he's eager to face The Scottish Psychopath for the WWE Title again. 

"The world title, that's been my priority since I came back," Lashley said. "That hasn't changed. When I returned to WWE, I came in and paid respect to the guys who were here. Ever since, I've been focused on taking steps to show I am the guy. 

"I want that fight, I want that title. Drew is old-school. He fits into any era. He's tough, he's real. We have a lot of unfinished business. We have history. We've met in the ring before, we were tag partners, and we know each other real well. Drew is 'The Chosen One.' That's not me, I'm someone that fought for it. There is so much potential for our fights."

Beyond another shot at the WWE Championship, The All Mighty still wants to square off with Brock Lesnar, an opponent he's been advocating to face for years, and Lashley later told Sports Illustrated that he wouldn't mind facing both McIntyre and The Beast Incarnate at WrestleMania 37. 

"Adding Brock always adds a lot. He's as real as it gets, and he's someone I want in the ring. So I'm open to that, but me and Drew can do it on our own, too. There are a lot of options, which is great for everyone," Lashley added.
