That’s a bad sign for the future. There is very little more frustrating in wrestling than seeing someone getting red hot and then having their career put on hold by an injury. That seems to be the case with Bobby Lashley, who lost the WWE Title at Elimination Chamber despite not actually getting in the ring. Lashley has a shoulder injury, and now things are looking even worse than before.
WWE will be returning to Madison Square Garden on March 5 but the arena’s advertisement for the show no longer includes Lashley. Prior to the change, Lashley had been scheduled to face Brock Lesnar in a WWE Title match, which was mentioned by Paul Heyman this week on Monday Night Raw. There is no word on who will be taking Lashley’s place in the match, or when Lashley will be returning to the ring, though earlier reports suggested that Lashley could be out for up to four months.
Opinion: That really doesn’t sound great and I’m worried to see just how long Lashley might be out of action. A shoulder injury is bad enough but now it seems that Lashley could be out of action for a long time. It isn’t clear when Lashley is going to be back, but hopefully it is sooner rather than later. Lashley has been one of the better stars in WWE for a long time now and it would be great if he can continue that when he gets back in the ring.
What do you think of Lashley? Who should take his place at Madison Square Garden? Let us know in the comments below.
