I always tell people I love and enjoy every single thing I’ve done in WWE,” Lashley revealed. “Everything is a journey. My journey was of course a little different since coming back.

But I look back at it and you know what it just shows that I’m willing to pay the dues and shows that I’m in there for the shows and it shows there that I’m ready for my time.”

Bobby Lashley wants to face Drew McIntyre next

Everyone knows about his willingness to face Brock Lesnar in a match. Lashley also recognizes it, but he wants to take on the former WWE Champion first.

As far as Brock, Brock is one person but how I look at it is Drew beat Brock in, like, no time,” Lashley said. “So, of course, my sights were set on Brock for some time but, as I said, Drew is the man, Drew is the one that beat him, Drew beat, Goldberg.

“Of course, Brock is that kind of mystery match, dream match that everybody has wanted us to have for some time now, but right now, I’m looking to be the best, and right now the best is Drew. Drew is the top guy. If I beat Miz, or when I beat Miz, I think Drew is the guy.”

Drew McIntyre was absent on the last Raw following his loss to The Miz. Next week, Bobby Lashley will take on The Miz due to “prior arrangements.”

As we mentioned earlier, Lashley is confident about his win over the “A-Lister.” Now that Lesnar has left WWE, Lashley vs McIntyre seems like a good and plausible idea.
