Despite the fact he had to wait 16 years, Bobby Lashley is happy it took him this long and even said the same to Vince McMahon himself.
Speaking to Justin Kinner on the Justin Kinner Show, The Dominator shared some details about his WWE Championship victory.
Lashley expressed how he would have liked to have won the title sooner, given all the perks of being a champion. However, he feels the long wait made it even more special.
"I enjoy the wait. Of course, I would have wanted it sooner because of all the perks that come with it. Champions make a little extra money and get extra things. I just flew on a private jet to Raw. Those are the things you get as WWE Champion and I wish I would have had it before. At the same time, winning it, and I even told this to Vince [McMahon], 'I'm glad it took me this long to win it.'"
Bobby Lashley defeated The Miz on the March 1, 2021, episode of Monday Night RAW to become just the third African-American to win the WWE Championship.
