Bobby Lashley Talks Always Being Asked About The WWE, His Feud With EC3 & The Re-Branding Of Impact


The former Impact Wrestling Heavyweight Champion, Bobby Lashley, recently spoke with WrestlingINC regarding; always being asked about the WWE although he works for GFW Impact, discusses his feud with EC3 & much more.

Here are the highlights:

His Rivalry With EC3:

“I think it really is because; in wrestling, there are so many different characters and in real life, there are so many different characters and there are so many different characters that really don’t get along in real life and that’s how we had it and I think the fans saw that. He was like the traditional, um, the kid that got everything handed to him. He was kind of like the brat that was an athlete.”

“There was always some dissension between, so I think the fans saw that, it wasn’t acting. Me and Eddie Edwards, it was natural, two different people, two truly and uniquely different characters going against each other. So, I think the crowd just kind of sees it and said, “Oh, we like this.” You never know what’s going to happen, you never know if I’m against Eddie, it doesn’t matter how much “heat” there is between us. There’s just so many guys in there that there’s natural reaction between two wrestlers. I had it with Drew, I had it with Eddie Edwards, I had it with EC3. My characters separates (me) from everyone else, so whenever we go together, it’s real, I like that.”

The Re-Branding Of Impact:

“Yeah, this is an obvious answer for us, it doesn’t matter. You know why it doesn’t matter? We had some rough times in TNA; we had some pay issues and this and that, they were some other issues. But at that time, we were working harder than we ever worked. Even though, you know, we were being paid late and all, we worked harder than we worked before and after that, when the new management came in, when the new crew came in, we didn’t skip a week, we just kept working and then they said they were replacing. There were some people that went out and some people that came in, but as far as how have we’ve worked, we’re going to continue what we’re doing because we’re wrestlers.”

“When you put wrestlers on TV, they’re the highest professionals in the business. We’re the highest professionals in this business. In that way, we just go out there and work. The good thing is, things are now alright. We’ve had the opportunity to come [to India], which we didn’t have before. Some of the guys are saying they’ve had some issues that are being taken care of now, so there are positives. But as I said, there is nothing different in how hard we work. So we’re going to continue what we’re doing regardless of if he get paid, if we don’t get paid, regardless of if we have him as the leader, or if she’s the leader. It doesn’t matter, we love what we do, so we work as hard as we can, no matter what.”

Always Being Asked About The WWE:

“All the time. I don’t mind it because when you think about it, WWE is the flagship of wrestling, they started it all, we all know that. But when you look over there, look at all the stars that are over there, they were over here and that’s how it is. I mean, we have quality, and we’re going to build up on the people, the quality that we have. I mean, I don’t mind the questions, I don’t mind it all. I’ll talk about WWE.”
