WWE Champion Bobby Lashley had a chat with Helen Yee. Lashley is on good terms with the former UFC interim welterweight champion, Colby Covington. Covington is a heel personality, to say the least. Lashley believes he is very well suited for the world of pro wrestling as he already has the needed persona.

Well, he has the heel role down, huh? When he first started out, he was one of those guys. You watched Colby’s career, Colby was beating everybody before and he was one of those guys who was not getting a break. He came, and he did a little scene with me over at Impact,” said Lashley.

He did some professional wrestling stuff and I think one of the guys started kind of feeding him some lines there for a while and then people started hating him and they started getting them the matches that he wanted,” he added.

So, you know you can be mad at him for the things that he said, but you can’t be mad at him for the things that he did. So, I think for somebody like him, he has that fan base that he’s built up as a heel.” Lashley concluded, “So, you never know. You never say never.

Lashley will defend his WWE Championship against Goldberg at SummerSlam. Fans are in high anticipation as two of the biggest superstars of the current roster are set to collide.

Who is Colby Covington fighting next?

Covington will take on Kamaru Usman in a rematch at UFC 268. The duo previously collided at UFC 245 in a back-and-forth contest. However, Usman edged out that time, earning a fifth-round finish. Covington is determined to alter the outcome this time.

Covington has left his long-time gym ATT for quite a while now. He has revealed he has brought in some changes to his game to beat Usman this time. Whether those are enough for ‘Chaos’ remains to be seen.
