Lashley has received a ton of praise from wrestling legends and fans alike. It was his first WWE Championship win since he began his wrestling career sixteen years ago.
Talk with WWE Now India, Bobby Lashley discussed his reaction to winning the WWE Championship and how it felt to hold onto the belt. The WWE Champion said:
“It’s one of those things that you can’t mentally prepare yourself for. You always think that when you get there, there are certain feelings that are going to come out, you are going to get excited or go crazy but when I have it, that is. It’s kind of like – it was upsetting. The first few days of being the WWE Champion were just – it was like nothing else. ”
“I got calls from so many people I was training with, people I competed with, friends, family, everyone calls me, congratulates me, tells me I deserve it and all it made me feel good. It was overwhelming. It was something he had not yet fully entered. “
“Winning that title and finally getting it was just amazing and it’s been an amazing feeling ever since.”
Since winning the title, Bobby Lashley has often been featured on Monday Night RAW week after week as the Dominant WWE Champion.
