Bobby said- “As I started moving into it a little bit more and trying different kind of characters, some of the things I did in amateur (wrestling) kind of made me smaller. And ‘Taker told me once, when we were doing house shows, I instantly wanted to get in that wrestling role. And ‘Taker was like, ‘Stand up. Look at the ring and look at you. When you go down like that, it makes you look small. You stand up, you have the ring plus you’re big, you’re impressive, they’re looking at you like ‘Wow!’ I tried to move more into the professional wrestling style, especially after my first run (with WWE).”

How did Lashley elevate his WWE Career?

Bobby Lashley is a veteran himself in wrestling as The Almighty has been wrestling since 2005. The three-time National Amateur Wrestling Champion started his career at WWE under his real name. But he only lasted about three years at the company as he did not live up to his hypes. Lashley, who then went on to many independent promotions and even tried MMA, came back to WWE as a matured wrestler in 2018.

Since then, Lashley has been stepping into more significant success in the company. WWE’s decisions to turn him into a heel and introduce The Hurt Business under the management of MVP turned out to be the launching pad for his current success.
