Bobby Lashley On WWE - "I'm Completely Open To Going Back"

SLAM! Wrestling has a new article featuring quotes from Bobby Lashley. In it, Lashley talks about WWE and while he criticizes them for letting John Morrison walk, he has many positive things to say. Lashley also didn't rule out a return to his former employer, almost as going as far as suggesting he's interested:

Below is an excerpt:

"There’s of course unfinished business in WWE, there’s always some unfinished business somewhere, but I believe there’s still something’s to accomplish in WWE, definitely.

"I’m completely open to going back, I would love to come back and do something big if there was an opportunity presented, I would definitely consider it.

"While I would do it, if the chance never came my way then I would be completely content in continuing with what I’m doing at the moment and that’s continuing wrestling and trying to become the best possible fighter I can be."

    At least Bobby Lashley knows and acknowledges where he came from, unlike Brock Lesnar.

    • JakShowtime

      Try watching the full press conference, he doesn't trash WWE and actually talks about how it's helped him.

  • Van

    that would be awesome!

    I think it was unfortunate that Lashley left in the first place and his MMA career never exactly took off. I think it would be a waste if it was a one time appearance or something but he could have a great run and bring some needed star power in about now. He was destined for greatness at one point so it would be nice to see him come back for a real run. His athleticism was great and he didn't even have to do much talking – he did all his talking in the ring and I miss that.

    You don't get guys like Bobby Lashley anymore. He has the look, in-ring ability but he lacks charisma and mic skills

      Mic skills = 0

    I never liked bobby lashley as a pro wrestler. when he won the ECW world championship at december to dissmember the fans hated it. i hope he never returns to Pro Wrestling.

    • Prprince

      I got to say that I did not really the like the Bobby lashley ecw era either. All I think was wwe was just trying to re hash a Ahmed Johnson.

  • Jim

    Of course he’s open to coming back. His big fighting career hasn’t gone anywhere near as well as he thought it was going to. So why take real kicks and punches? When he can go back to WWE where he will make more money and not take real beatings. Makes sense to me.

    E, and most likely make a lot more money, and

    Where's the opportunity?

  • @RatedMKD

    Seems like he might be just dangling the hook out there, so to speak, without risking his pride by actively pursuing WWE. If he's known to have tried to go back and been rejected, he might be seen as less of a draw by rival organisations, be they pro wrestling or MMA.
