Bobby Lashley has agreed to defend his United States Championship against a top Raw Superstar next week!
The Almighty Bobby Lashley has reigned as United States Champion since defeating Austin Theory at Money in the Bank. Since then, he’s successfully defended the title in a rematch with Theory as well as against AJ Styles, Ciampa, and The Miz.
On the September 12th episode of Raw, Seth Rollins was speaking to Kevin Patrick backstage and called himself the face of Monday Night Raw. He was confronted by Bobby Lashley, who said that he who has the gold is the face of Raw, pointing to the fact that he’s currently a champion and Rollins is not. Seth said that he was talking about a different title earlier in the night, but then issued a challenge for the United States Championship next week, which Lashley accepted.
