Bobby Lashley spoke on WWE’s After The Bell recently, where he talked about his upcoming match with Brock Lesnar. The two men will face off for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble. Lashley, on the other hand, mentioned how the Beast has been avoiding him. “He said it on Raw, Monday. Not gonna say it pissed me off because I wanna keep this smile on my face,” Lashley said. “This whole, ‘Bobby who?’ And that’s what I told you before. There’s not this, ‘hey Brock, so excited to get an opportunity to be in a ring with you and all this stuff!’”

“This is what it was and this is what I’ve told you before,” he said. “For 17 years, or if you want to say 18, 19, 20, or whatever you want to say, it’s been a long time, he had an opportunity to get in the ring with somebody as equal or greater and he chose not to for so long.”

Bringing out a different side

Bobby Lashley also discussed the promotions and exchanges they’ve had. He believes it is bringing out a different side of himself in him, as it has been in some of his recent fights. “When I was in front of Brock on Monday Night, I was reading him and he was telling a joke,” he said. “And he was trying to get in character but every time he would come and we would lock eyes for a little bit, he would stop for a little bit. He would pause and look at me and just let me know, ‘I don’t have a soul’.”

Brock felt happy about the job they provided when they completed exchanging words in the ring, according to the former WWE Champion.

“The cool thing about it, there were a lot of things said,” Bobby said. “But there were a lot of things just said me and him looking straight across from each other, we had a lot of dialogue between us. Then when we went back, you know, he goes, ‘let’s go, it felt good out there!’ But we had a lot of dialogue right here, and that’s awesome.

“That’s the thing I love about fighting,” Lashley stated. “He can bring out something in me that I don’t think anybody else could. I mean, Drew brought a level out of me because Drew was somebody that wanted to fight. Sheamus brought a level out of me because Sheamus is someone who’s dirty and rotten and just loves to fight. Brock’s different, and it’s a different level.”
