#5 Bobby Lashley recommended Lars Sullivan to WWE
He never had to work for the Indies because Sullivan has patronage from the Rocky Mountains hence his only home in professional wrestling has been the WWE Performance Center.
He grew up in Colorado and went to a wrestling school located in Denver. Sullivan was discovered by Lashley when he did his base training with him and impressed him with his raw talent, so much so that Lashley called the WWE and pushed them to hire him and train him as a Superstar.
Even though Lashley stayed away from the WWE for quite some time and only returned to the company earlier this year, he saw Lars as a true superstar and wanted him to excel with the company.
