Bobby Lashley ended a 17-year-long journey and captured the WWE Championship, in a moment that was bittersweet for many fans who were glad he won, but others didn’t feel the same way.
While speaking to Yahoo! Sports, Bobby Lashley talked about his huge WWE Championship one and one reaction in particular to his title win that will forever be etched in his mind.
“There was an interview right after I won, and it was with a team that went back and forth. One of them liked me and the other one hated me. When she said she read the headline that I had won the championship, she audibly groaned. But by the end of the interview, she said I deserved it. That’s the thing. With this title, I think there are a lot of different reasons why people get to this point, but across the board people can recognize that I have put in the work. This isn’t something that was given to me. Everybody that knows me knows that I am religious with the things that I do. The biggest thing is to know that I deserved it.”
Bobby Lashley will be defending his WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre at WWE Hell In A Cell on June 20. We will have to see if he will be able to retain his WWE Championship or not.
