Some fans have been speculation about the tag team partner of WWE’s latest signing.
Fans were asking Dave Meltzer about the possibility of Bobby Lashley teaming up with Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34 to take on Stephanie McMahon and Triple H in a mixed tag team match.
Meltzer answered the question during the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio. He noted that former Universal Champion Seth Rollins has a good chance to be her tag team partner but downplayed the idea of Lashley teaming with her. Here is what he had to say (transcript courtesy of RingSide News):
“Bobby Lashley, I don’t see. Just not enough time to introduce him properly. It’s possible but I don't see it.”
Lashley, who burst onto the WWE scene due to his size and power, made his debut on SmackDown back in 2005, but was released by the company just three years later.
His time with the company ended badly as a six-month layoff prevented him from competing for the final months of his contract, and in February 2008, he was released.
However, he recovered from his injury and made his way to TNA, before returning to the independent circuit in 2010. But he wasn't done with Total Nonstop Action, and he rejoined the company back in 2014.
During an interview with ESPN last June, Lashley talked about coming from WWE to TNA and his time with the promotion. Here is what he had to say:
"When I came over from the WWE, I didn't know what to think. Wrestling is wrestling. WWE is the flagship program, of course but, there's just so much incredible talent. When I came over and worked with Bobby Roode, we did two matches together, I thought he was amazing. Amazing. The guy is really good. Bobby Roode is born to be their star and I'm glad they found something with him. That 'Glorious' thing is pretty nice."
"For me, my contract's good and it gives me the opportunity to do what I love and outside of that, you won't hear nothing [negative] from me. It spoke volumes for the people we have over here. Even though there were pay issues and this and that, there was all kinds of little boo-boos here and there, but the one thing everybody did was get ready to wrestle. Nobody held back. So I think that was the biggest thing for me. It shows what the people I was working with were all about, they were about the show, and the fans."
