Bobby Lashley recently took time to heap some recognition onto the Monday Night Raw roster.
Even after dropping the U.S. Title to Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley still stands tall as one of the most notable members of the Raw locker room. During his championship reign it was full steam ahead for Lashley as he felled challengers such as, Tomaso Ciampa, Mustafa Ali, and AJ Styles. With new levels of attention being shown to the past neglected U.S. Title, Triple H obviously saw Bobby Lashley as a viable candidate to reestablish the belt.
As a recent guest on the Busted Open Radio show, Lashley spoke on his feelings of being one of the top faces in WWE regardless of the fact he currently holds no championship gold.
“There are a lot of people in that position. I love our roster right now. That’s what made me excited about winning the United States Title. I had Ali, he’s a guy who has been overlooked a little bit, but he is phenomenal. Great wrestler, great mind in the business and he’s hungry. Every day when I come in, he has different ideas, ‘I want to do this, I want to do this.’ You have him, Riddle, he’s on fire right now. Seth Rollins, he’s Seth Freakin’ Rollins, he’s great across the board. Some of my closest friends, even favorites, the Hurt Business. MVP is there with Omos. Shelton Benjamin is still doing his stuff. Cedric is there. I’d like to bring that group back together at some point in time. There are so many highly talented people on there. Chad Gable, Otis. I dont’ want to leave out any names. Edge, Rey Mysterio, his son [Dominik Mysterio] . We’re all the faces…I’m one of the prominent figures because I’m the champion, but there are so many people you could say are the face of Raw, it depends on how you’re looking at it,”Bobby Lashley
After hosting an incredibly brief reunion last year, The Hurt Business officially parted ways, Bobby Lashley and MVP gave life to the faction in early 2020.
