Bobby Lashley Rejected Roles In Stranger Things, Mortal Kombat

Bobby Lashley was almost in Stranger Things and Mortal Kombat

While Bobby Lashley is one of WWE's top stars, he had the opportunity to expand into TV and film roles with Mortal Kombat and Stranger Things prior to returning to the company but he ultimately turned down the offers.

Lashley told Sidewalks Entertainment:

"I did a handful of movies when I was fighting there for a while from my first run in WWE into my second run. I did about four or five little small parts, but it was kind of like they needed that big bad villain to come in there. And I played that part. Of course, I get killed every time, but I was offered things afterward, also. There was a Mortal Kombat position that I was offered. There was Stranger Things. There's a lot of different ones that I was offered afterward. And I think at the time, I wasn't really focused on doing that. Because I was fighting at the time, I was trying to get back into professional wrestling. So the acting part was something that I was interested in, but I don't think it was the right timing.

"And then when I came back into WWE, I started to do more acting classes, kind of working on that part of it. And now I'm more open to doing it, and we have some different projects in line right now, but I think that I can see myself kind of moving into a bigger role and doing some more movies and everything like that when I slow it down in professional wrestling."

Lashley was recently United States Champion in WWE and he will look to reclaim the title at Survivor Series in a Triple Threat with Seth Rollins and Austin Theory.
