Over the past few months, we have seen Bobby Lashley be regularly featured on RAW. Following his run with the WWE Championship earlier this year, Lashley was featured in a prominent feud with Goldberg, and now Big E. At Day One, Bobby will participate in a fatal four way match for the WWE Championship. He will be facing Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and the current WWE Champion Big E for the belt.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that WWE has plans to turn Bobby Lashley face. The video packages and the title shot that he received have indicated that his character is developing into one representative of a babyface.
Meltzer reported, “If you watch the show you certainly get the impression that Bobby Lashley is going babyface. They played a total babyface video package for him at the pay-per-view, yeah. So, I mean it’s been feeling like that’s been in the cards and then he has to beat three guys to get in [to the Day 1 WWE Title match], I mean that’s a total babyface move.”(h/t to Ringside News for the transcription)
On January 1, 2022, we will see Bobby compete for his second WWE Championship. Every member of the match has held a world title at some point, so it will be interesting to see the direction the company goes in with their RAW world title.
