    Wow!!! Titan Championship Fighting?!!?!!?! Way to waste your time on a MMA Career going nowhere Lashley. Instead of being a top star in wrestling…

    Hmm, i greatly disagree– i doubt Lashley was going to be a top star in wrestling, he got axed a short time after WM25 and was being hyped as TNA’s verison of Brock Lesnar. He’s still young though, so he’s got plenty of time to make a something of himself. At the very least, he should be able to make it to Bellator Fighting Champship at somepoint within the next year or two if he keeps at it. Granted of course, MMA fighters only fight two times a year, if that. Still, i think Lashley is going to end up doing better as an MMA fighter than professional wrestler or sports entertainer in the long run.
