Bobby Lashley was recently medically cleared to return to action. Lashley spoke to John Laurinaitis about his return. In his return phone call, Lashley told Laurinaitis that he wasnâ<80><99>t coming back.

Laurinaitis has drawn a lot of heat on himself for the way recent departures have bad mouthed the company on the way out.

There are a number of factors that led to Lashleyâ<80><99>s departure from the company. Among them include Lashleyâ<80><99>s Wrestlemania 23 payoff. It is believed Lashley earned $250,000, but apparently he heard stories of $1 million Wrestlemania payoffs. The general belief is that Lashley earned in the neighborhood of $1 million in 2007, despite missing months of action.

Lashley was also upset about the way his girlfriend Kristal Marshall was fired.

Believe it or not, wrestlers at a recent Smackdown/ECW taping were told Vince McMahon had fired Lashley to make an example out of someone that complained in the company.
