Bobby Lashley defeated The Miz on the March 1 episode of RAW, winning the WWE Championship for the very first time.
Lashley recently spoke to The Times of India ahead of WrestleMania 37 and talked about his opponent at The Show of Shows, Drew McIntyre. The champion said that Drew McIntyre is "the perfect person" and will go down as one of the best WWE champions of all time.
"I’m always prepared. I came back in the second round prepared, and I’ve only gotten better. You know what, out of anyone that I can possibly have an opportunity to share that ring with, I think Drew McIntyre is the perfect person. Because I think Drew McIntyre is going to go down officially as one of the greatest WWE champions in history. That being said, it is going to be very sweet, it’s going to be very nice to take him out. That’s just going to put my name that much higher in the history book."
Bobby Lashley spoke proudly about defending his title at WrestleMania 37 and stated that it would be an amazing feeling to be among the fans once again. He almost made it abundantly clear that he intends to walk out of WrestleMania as champion.
