WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T has picked the one person he’d love to have managed at ringside and his pick is one All Mighty superstar.
Lashley could have used all the help he could get after having to defend his WWE Championship twice on Monday Night RAW. Earlier in the day, Mr. Money In The Bank Big E declared his intention to be at RAW and to cash in his contract for a shot at the WWE Title.
In the advertised main event Lashley defended that title against Randy Orton, managing to overcome one-half of the RAW Tag Team Champions to retain. Any satisfaction Bobby Lashley could take from that win was short-lived as Big E proved true to his word and cashed in the briefcase. A short match followed with a Big Ending proving decisive as Big E claimed his first WWE Championship.
Speaking on his Hall Of Fame podcast, Booker T discussed Lashley as the one star that the five-time WCW Champion would be happy to second to the ring:
“If I had to manage one person, it would be Bobby (Lashley). It would be Bobby. Not want to step on the toes of MVP or anything like that. Bobby – I think I have certain special qualities that I could bring to the game, especially the suit game – my suit game is much more on top than MVP but I ain’t trying to throw no shade on MVP. I think Bobby would’ve been a guy I would’ve loved to stood next to, just because of the history Bobby and I have as well. A guy who actually, physically sat under the learning tree and get the hell beat out of. So, yeah, that would have been the guy.”
Bobby Lashley has been managed by MVP since May 2020, together the duo formed The Hurt Business with Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin before Lashley turned on the pair earlier this year.
