The Raw star spoke with Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT to discuss the match as well as his longtime goal of wrestling Brock Lesnar.
Lashley thinks there’s an interest in seeing him take on Lesnar. While he doesn’t know why the match hasn’t happened yet, he’s still holding out hope that it will take place.
“I do believe eventually it will happen before Brock and I are senior citizens. The one thing that people – and I don’t want to switch gears here – but Drew McIntyre is a Brock Lesnar. He definitely is. I think that a matchup with Drew is just as exciting as Brock, to me, if done right.”
Lashley stated that while he’s focused on dethroning McIntyre, he still wants the Lesnar match and is not erasing it from his mind.
“I think both of those matches are great matches. I think eventually the dots will be connected and I think right now with the right people in the right places, I think a lot of really big things could be happening.”
Lashley also talked about his motivation, second stint in WWE, and more. You can check out the full interview here.
