Bobby Lashley is currently dealing with a nagging shoulder problem that dates back before WrestleMania. Due to the recent rash of injuries in WWE, it there’s no way that he’s taking time off unless the injury became severe.

One of the biggest things criticized in Bobby Lashleyâ<80><99>s development as a main event superstar in WWE is his lacking of skill on the microphone. One backstage source familiar with the situation said that because Lashley did not grow up a wrestling fan he has yet to fully understand and appreciate the â<80><9c>cultureâ<80> of wrestling. This prevents him from being able to generate fake emotion to make it genuine-looking during on-camera segments which causes his promos to suffer.

Lashley is aware of the fact that he is not a natural on the mic which only fuels his shortcomings as he has a fear of being embarrassed. Obviously the feeling backstage is that the ECW World Champ will overcome his shortcomings on the mic as long as he is willing to work at it and that is one of the few things that Lashley is having problems with.
