As we saw at Saturday’s WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event, Bobby Lashley was taken out of the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match after Seth Rollins powerbombed Austin Theory through the pod, knocking Lashley out and subsequently having him removed from the match. Lashley was escorted to the backstage area and automatically “lost” his WWE Championship to the man who would go on to win the match and the championship for the 10th time, Brock Lesnar.
So, what is the plan for Bobby Lashley heading into WrestleMania 38?
After being removed from the match due to “concussion protocol” by WWE’s medical staff, Lashley is scheduled to travel back to the United States and undergo more tests.
The idea behind this storyline, according to PWInsider, is to set up a high-caliber match for WrestleMania 38 between Bobby Lashley and Seth Rollins.
