Since Bobby Lashley made his return to the WWE earlier this year after WrestleMania 34, many fans including the former ECW Champion have wanted to see one match take place. That match is Lashley taking on current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.
Not only due to their amateur wrestling backgrounds but also because they have a background in MMA. Although they have yet to compete against each other inside of the cage and the likelihood of that happen not having the greatest chances, there is a realistic possibility to see them square off inside of a WWE ring.
Recently, WWE decided to turn Lashley heel and pair him with Lio Rush on Monday Night Raw. Konnan recently gave his take on the current Lashley character and why he should be groomed for a match against Lesnar. He wrote the following on Twitter:
“Guy can talk, can work, great look, MMA background, he should be groomed for Lesnar..point, period end of story…#Ridiculous.”

Just last month, Lashley talked about how he still wants to face Lesnar during an interview with Sports Bible where he was quoted by stating, “Absolutely. I can post anything on social media and the people will reply we wanna see you and Brock, it’s something that has been building for the last 10 years so eventually it’s gonna happen because the fans want it to happen that bad.”
