Bobby Lashley: “There’s a Tremendous Amount of Money” in Facing Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania

This week on The Ross Report, Jim Ross’s podcast, one of the two guests is Bobby Lashley, who’s doing media to promote both this Sunday’s TNA Bound For Glory pay-per-view and his next fight in Bellator MMA, which is against Josh Appelt  in Memphis on October 21st. Early in the interview, Ross asks Lashley a Twitter question about if we’ll ever see him face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. Lashley definitely seemed enthused at the prospect:

“You know, I hear that all the time, and J.R., you know as well as I do, it’s not in my hands. If you ask me, I would say absolutely, but it’s the powers that be. I think that there’s enough fans who would love to see it. They’ve been saying it from day one. And you know what the funny thing about it is? I’ve never met Brock in person. Never crossed paths with Brock anywhere. So we don’t even know each other at all, whatsoever.”

Lashley is under contract with Bellator and Brock Lesnar’s situation with UFC is complicated to say the least, but Lashley thinks there’s huge money in the two monsters facing off in a WWE ring.

“And I’ve always been compared to Brock, and they say ‘Are you and Brock gonna fight? Are you and Brock gonna wrestle? I don’t know if the fighting is still an opportunity with me being in Bellator and him kind of being with the UFC; or I don’t know what the situation is right now. So I don’t know if the fight thing is possible, but to see me as Brock’s destroying everyone and save the day, or vice versa, whatever the case is, have us stand face to face? I think the crowd would go insane. And there’s a tremendous amount of money in it. If it were to happen, then I’m open for it.”

Of course, they’re under contract to competing companies, but as we’ve heard repeatedly this week, that may not be an issue soon if TNA doesn’t get bailed out.
