Bobby Lashley Pitches Survivor Series Match With WWE SmackDown Star


WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley is interested in facing Intercontinental Champion Gunther.

Lashley wants to wrestle the SmackDown star before the end of 2022, potentially Survivor Series. He views this upcoming event in November as the perfect time as it will have crossover matches between RAW and SmackDown.

“I think an interesting matchup that I heard a couple of times is Gunther,” Bobby Lashley tells BT Sport. “I think just him being my counter on the other show. I think it’s something that is kind of intriguing. He’s a tough, tough, tough competitor. I mean, he’s been doing some big stuff and he just went right up to the top right away. So I think it’s an interesting matchup. It’s a matchup that I think that we can kind of build towards. Maybe we can do that at Survivor Series or we can do that a little later on in the year, but it’s something definitely that I’m interested in.”

Lashley will defend his title against Austin Theory at SummerSlam this Saturday. Gunther currently doesn’t have a match lined up at the show.
