So, the champion spoke to Sportskeeda about this situation. He believes that the released Superstars cannot bad-mouth the company. This ruins any future chances of them being hired back by the company.

“Never burn bridges. I think a lot of times, people leave the wrestling business or leave one organization and feel the need to badmouth, and I think that’s just ridiculous. I think every one of us kind of made our name from the WWE or from professional wrestling and made a lot of money.”

Bobby Lashley has a message for fans

Coming to the fans, Lashley believes that the fans need to understand that wrestlers who bad-mouth a company, they don’t understand the business. Therefore, he wants the fans to walk away from such wrestlers.

“I think that the fans need to understand that you see somebody that’s fighting one organization or the other, just don’t even pay attention to them. Lose them as a fan. Like, as a fan, walk away from them because they don’t understand what the wrestling business is about. Everybody needs to eat. Everybody needs to feed their kids, and everybody wants to have a good show.” H/t Sportskeeda

Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. Usually, fans do not connect with a pro-wrestler because of a company, but because of the character and the story.

Therefore, when the company releases a fan’s favourite Superstars, they tend to move their attention to what the wrestler is doing next. Hence, the attention goes to the next company the wrestler will debut in.
