WWE is set to welcome one of its most physically gifted stars back to the company - former ECW World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley.
Lashely has been working for IMPACT Wrestling for the past several years since leaving WWE, in addition to fighting in the heavyweight division over in Bellator mixed martial arts (MMA). Now he will forgo another year in IMPACT and return to the big leagues in WWE.
Wrestling Observer Radio's Dave Meltzer had reported a few months ago that WWE as interested in bringing Lashley back to the fold. The early rumor had Lashley returning to feud with Brock Lesnar after WrestleMania.
Brad Shepard of Bodyslam.net had reported that Lashley had officially agreed to terms with WWE on a return last month. There are now more developments on WWE's creative plans to bring Lashley back to TV.
Vince Russo's co-host on the Vince Russo Brand podcast, Bin Hamin (a former trainer in WWE's old developmental territory), now reports that Lashley is being planned to return either after the main event of WrestleMania 34 or the night after on RAW.
The main event of WrestleMania is looking to be the Universal Championship match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. Lesnar will defend his title against last month's Men's Elimination Chamber winner in Reigns.
Reigns is expected to finally dethrone Lesnar in what will be a passing of the torch moment. If rumors that Lashley will feud with Lesnar are true, it makes sense for him to attack a beaten down Lesnar after his loss at Mania.
Perhaps if Lesnar decides not to re-sign with WWE and return to the UFC, Lashley could begin a feud with Reigns instead for the Universal Championship.
There are plenty of options for Lashley's WWE return, and it should be interesting to see what the company finally decides on.
What are your thoughts on Bobby Lashley possibly coming back to WWE after the main event of WrestleMania 34? Do you think that the company will wait until after WrestleMania to debut Lashely on RAW? And who will Lashley feud with when he finally makes his return to the company? Have YOUR say in the comments section below, and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport’s WWE podcast is here!
