RAW Superstar Bobby Lashley was the most recent guest on Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast. Lashley opened up about working with Donald Trump at WrestleMania, overcoming shyness, and his time of service in the United States Army.
Of particular interest to wrestling fans may be Lashley’s apparent desire to ‘turn heel.’ When Garcia suggested a possible wrestling angle between Lashley and Dolph Ziggler, whom Lashley bested for his initial WWE opportunity, Lashley responded:
“That would definitely make me a heel which I’m dying to be and it would make him a babyface because people really like him. When I was in TNA, the other show, Impact, I was a heel and I really loved being a heel.”
When Garcia asked Lashley if he was craving another heel run, he responded,
“Yeah because I think in the wrestling business across the board there’s a lot of people that can benefit from me being a heel. I don’t necessarily need to be it now; but, I’d love to work a program with the Finn Balors, Braun [Strowman], and when I worked with Roman [Reigns] – they already love Roman – but I can make him all the way babyface. Seth Rollins – we have a lot of baby faces on the roster across the board and I think as a heel I can work a lot of them really well. It would be a fun fun go.”
