Lashley's professional wrestling career is well documented, including his time in WWE as the ECW champion. And his success in the ring hasn't simply been during his time in WWE, as he has been a champion in Impact Wrestling as well. However, his time away from the squared circle has been just as remarkable. When Lashley first stepped away from the ring he walked into another ring and has been very successful.

In the world of Mixed Martial Arts, he has held his own, compiling a very good record of 15 wins and 2 losses. During his MMA career, he has competed for such promotions as Strikeforce and Bellator. His most recent match was a win against Josh Appelt in October 2016, but just because he has not competed in MMA in over a year doesn't mean that his time in an octagon is over. This time away may just be a break until he has the itch to return once again.

As a wrestling enthusiast for over 30 years, my fondness for professional wrestling explores the irrational in a rational way. I will explore the details inside and outside the ring and hopefully have a laugh with you in the process. I've had the fortune to interview wrestlers from Lucha Underground, TNA, Ring of Honor, GFW and former WWE talent as well. I will be hosting a new podcast beginning in July 2018, know as the Pro Wrestling Post Podcast. Feel free to follow me on Twitter:
