WWE Champion Bobby Lashley Trolls Sheamus Following His Loss to Drew McIntyre at Fastlane

Published 03/23/2021, 10:23 AM EDT


The fight is one aspect of a WWE match, but everyone knows the real entertainment comes from the ‘trash talk’ that precedes such showdowns. WWE Champion Bobby Lashley certainly knows where to hit- metaphorically- in such encounters.

Lashley’s opponent for the latest episode of Raw was Sheamus, who had just come out of an unsuccessful feud against Drew McIntyre. On the advertising poster for the fight, WWE placed Lashley’s render in front of Sheamus, a detail that annoyed him.

Settling the debate, ‘The All-Mighty’ had his own ‘mic drop’ moment when he explained that Sheamus could have his render in front as and when he wins a match! 

‘The Celtic Warrior’ did not bother replying to this but attempted to put his words into action on RAW. Unfortunately, he didn’t stand a chance against the dominant Champion and was sent home with yet another loss. 

Sheamus is on an unlucky losing streak in WWE

Sheamus is one of WWE’s most aggressive wrestlers and can really make a wrestling match turn into a brawl. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been unsuccessful in his many rivalries over the past years.

Sheamus came up short to Jeff Hardy on SmackDown, losing the feud at their famous ‘Bar Fight’. Following his move to Raw, he never managed to regain momentum and constantly faced a series of ups and downs.

He managed to come out successful in a Lumberjack Gauntlet match before Elimination Chamber this year by pinning then WWE Champion Drew McIntyre, but it has been loss after loss since then.

 Sheamus never managed to get ahead of Drew in their feud and lost every match in it, the concluding one being at Fastlane. He added to this immense losing streak on RAW at the hands of Bobby Lashley. 

Bobby Lashley has bigger problems to worry about

‘The All Mighty’ on the other hand has to face past demons as he defends against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania. Playing an instrumental role in helping The Miz steal the WWE Championship away from McIntyre, Lashley now has to answer for his crimes. 

The two are set to meet at the grandest stage of them all, and Lashley will not have the support of The Hurt Business as per the stipulation. He is all by himself as he faces ‘The Scottish Psychopath’, who is hungry to get his title back.

Unless Brock Lesnar has some bright ideas, the two will probably meet one-on-one to make the show a memorable one.
