Despite making his return to a huge ovation on the Raw following WrestleMania 34, Bobby Lashley seemed lost in the shuffle. Yes, he got an impressive clean win over Roman Reigns. But that was it. Every other program Bobby was a part of didn’t make much of a difference.

Bobby Lashley recently sat down for an interview with Yahoo Sports. During the interview, Lashley was asked if he ever doubted his decision of returning to WWE as he wasn’t into meaningful storylines for a majority of his return run.

The ‘All-Mighty‘ WWE Champion instantly says that he never doubted or regretted his WWE return. He noted WWE is the pinnacle of the pro wrestling/sports entertainment business and simply being there is a huge thing. After all, most wrestlers outside WWE cite a WWE contract as a dream come true.

He said, “Hell no. Hell no. This is the WWE. I don’t care what anyone says, it’s the pinnacle of this business. It always has been. Just to have the opportunity to be in the WWE is an accomplishment in itself. That’s what people don’t understand. It’s really an enormous thing. There are people in other organizations that wish they could be in WWE, wish they could be in any place here.”

Lashley further added that he was grateful to make a WWE return after over a decade away from the company. He also noted that he did have winning the World Championship in mind upon return, but he didn’t let his focus get clouded by it.


Not just that, but Bobby Lashley did not even get doubtful or complacent when he there wasn’t anything significant for him. Why? Because he always believed he would keep working whatever came his way, and WWE would eventually give him what he wants. Guess what? He did get it!

There’s one thing we can all learn from Bobby Lashley here. No matter how long you have to wait for your turn, you must be patient. Because once it comes to you, there’s hardly a chance it’s ever going back!
