Speaking to Shakiel Mahjouri of CBS Sports, Drew McIntyre recalled the moment, saying that it went both quickly and slowly at the same time.
“For me, it was very quick yet very slow at the same time. When trouble happens, things seem to slow down for me and I’m very aware of what’s going on. I knew when I hit the ropes, something went wrong. I was able to catch myself very quickly and was watching straight ahead and saw how Lashley went over. So, the rope broke as I connected. He was a split second behind me. He had no rope. He went into what should have been the top rope and he continued head over heels at the speed he was going.”
However, McIntyre said he felt better when he realized that Lashley was fine after seeing how he landed.
“Thankfully, I could see how he landed. He went head over heels. Those giant traps hit the ring apron. His head didn’t connect with the ring apron, thankfully. He flipped himself right around onto the mat outside. I could see he was probably going to be OK. Knowing him, he’d be OK.”
On the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw, it was announced that Bobby Lashley will face Omos in a steel cage next week. Meanwhile, Alexa Bliss made her Raw return after months away from television and Sonya Deville was fired from her position as an authority figure.
