From the WWE Rumor Mill: Bobby Lashley reportedly in New Orleans
Will this former US Champion be Braun Strowman's mystery tag team partner at WrestleMania?
What's the story?
Rumors are circulating that recently released Impact Wrestling talent Bobby Lashley is in New Orleans meaning that it's possible he could make an appearance at WrestleMania, or even NXT TakeOver: New Orleans.
In case you didn't know...
In February an issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter said that Bobby Lashley signing with the WWE was a done deal and it was only a matter of time before we saw the wrestler and MMA fighter make his return to the WWE.
The heart of the matter
We are told that Bobby Lashley is flying into New Orleans this weekend. He might be there already and being hidden or he is being flown in at the last minute to avoid being seen by fans but either way, he is expected to be in town and he is not booked to do anything at WrestleCon or elsewhere. However, he is expected to return to WWE as soon as this weekend.
The current online speculation seems to suggest that although Lashley could be Braun Strowman's mystery partner, or take part in the Andre the Giant Battle Royal, it's more likely that he'll appear on Monday Night Raw.
So those are the options for Bobby Lashley, Andre the Giant Battle Royal, Strowman's mystery tag-team partner, the Raw after 'Mania or he might even be in the audience for NXT TakeOver: New Orleans, although I'd imagine Lashley would go straight to the main roster.
Lashley had been one of Impact Wrestling's top stars until his departure and there's no denying his talent and power inside a wrestling ring. If he does return to the WWE it will only be a good thing for the company.
