Corey Graves Wants Bobby Lashley As WWE Champion Before Mania

Bobby Lashley

On the latest episode of WWE After The Bell, Corey Graves believes Bobby Lashley should be the WWE Champion heading into WrestleMania.

Graves told co-host Vic Joseph that he believes Lashley has been standing out to him for years now and wants to see him enter WrestleMania 37 as the WWE Champion.

If I were any further in you would have to surgically remove me from Bobby Lashley.

This is a long time coming, I love it so much. I have been singing the praises of Bobby for far too long, Lashley is a guy that for me, I just see dollar signs when I look at him. It’s just a matter of the stars aligning and putting him in the proper position.

Here’s a guy that loses the U.S. Championship, lays out Drew McIntyre at the end of Elimination Chamber and now is coming for The Miz and the WWE Championship.

Give me Bobby Lashley marching into Raymond James Stadium as the WWE Champion against anybody, I don’t care, I’m here for it.

Vic Joseph concurred with Graves, praising the rise of Lashley as something new and fresh. Noting that Lashley is everything that you could want in a WWE champion, he strikes fear into everyone and could kick your ass.

I’m in on Bobby Lashley as well, I love the fact that he’s in the championship picture. It’s fresh, it’s new, it’s different.

Bobby Lashley is someone who scares the majority of people. If you were walking down the street or in an alley or in a restaurant and accidentally dropped your drink on Bobby Lashley and he turned at you and gave you a glare, you would probably wet your pants.

When it comes to Bobby Lashley, he is everything you think of when you wanna talk about a WWE superstar and champion. He is imposing, he strikes fear in his opponents, he strikes fear in the viewer at home and you watch Bobby Lashley and go ‘Yeah, he can kick my ass.’ He’s not your everyday guy walking down the street.

Joseph continued, teasing the idea that should Bobby Lashley defeat The Miz this coming week and go on to WrestleMania – Brock Lesnar should be the guy to step up to the challenge.

That’s the one guy that’s the marquee, that’s the name. That’s something that’s been teased for years, it has so much potential, it draws.

That’s a case again if you’re looking across at 2 guys that you know physically would beat your ass if you were out in a bar and did something.

It’s not going to be a masterpiece, it’s not going to be 30 minutes, it’s going to be two pitbull’s in the ring, human demolition derby, it’s going to keep you glued on your television.
