Former Two-Time WWE Champion Returns After Over a Month, Sets Sights on Roman Reigns


In the world of wrestling, the tides are ever-changing. A recent development has left the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, in a precarious position. An old adversary has re-emerged on Friday nights, with a clear thirst for triumph.

Bobby Lashley, the former WWE Champion, made a surprise return at the WWE SuperShow in Cincinnati, Ohio, securing a win over the formidable Karrion Kross. This marked Lashley’s first appearance since his match against AJ Styles on the May 12 episode of SmackDown. It appears that Lashley is setting his sights on the top champion of the blue brand. His cryptic message to Reigns has caused quite a stir among the WWE Universe, leading many to believe he is the next contender.

Roman Reigns has not defended his titles on television since his match against Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39. It is possible that a face-off with Bobby Lashley could be Reigns’ first world championship feud since his bout with The American Nightmare.

There’s also the potential for Lashley to rekindle his rivalry with another former WWE Champion. Despite not yet reappearing on television, it is speculated that the company has significant plans for Lashley to make an immediate impact. His 2023 performance has been underwhelming, even with a “victory” over Brock Lesnar in Montreal, Canada.

After his seemingly conclusive match against The Beast, Lashley initiated a WrestleMania storyline with Bray Wyatt, which was put on hold within a few weeks. Wyatt has not yet made his return. There were previous reports suggesting his potential involvement at SummerSlam this year, and the company could easily revisit this feud.

The previous match-up between Bray Wyatt and Bobby Lashley received mixed reviews before it could fully develop. While The Eater of Worlds has faced criticism from fans, The All Mighty remains largely popular.
