Bobby Lashley didn’t wind up working the WrestleMania 39 pay-per-view event due to Bray Wyatt being pulled from WWE television due to medical issues during their feud. This led to Lashley winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on SmackDown.

Speaking on a recent edition of “The Ten Count” podcast, the Almighty commented on missing out on WWE’s Showcase of Immortals. He said,

“I was beyond disappointed. I’m not gonna say pessimistic, [but I was] disappointed, because I am a kind of chill person. The thing that disappoints me the most is all the work that I put in. We have live events throughout the year, I’m on all of them – every one of the pay-per-views. We had some mix ups and change ups, and then next [thing] you know I’m pulled off the biggest show.”

He continued, “It sucked to me, because I have my kids. The kids watch me, and leading up to it they were like, ‘Dad are we going to Wrestlemania?’ And I was like, ‘Look, if you guys want to go. I just don’t know if I’m gonna do anything there.’ All the while I was like, ‘There’s no way that’s gonna be [the case]. I have to be in WrestleMania. I’ve been in every WrestleMania in my entire career with the WWE. I’ve always been in a spotlight match. I have been in every pay-per-view, everything.’”
