WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross took to his podcast, “The Ross Report”, to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Ross discussed a possible feud between Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley, as well as how impressed he has been with Samoa Joe. Check out the highlights here:
Possible feud between Lesnar and Lashley: “I’m kind of intrigued by the Bobby Lashley subtle tease of the Brock Lesnar stuff,” Ross said. “I’d enjoy seeing that match, but for that to work, Lashley has got to get hot and he ain’t hot right now. They’re trying with the [Intercontinental] title. I understand that. Bobby’s a specimen. And the little manager, Lio Rush, highly talented.
“I didn’t need to see him wrestling on Monday though either. It’s like people get tired of managers so quick in creative because why unless you already placed future value in a guy would you already start beating him around and bouncing him around like a rubber ball? Wouldn’t you save that for another time when it meant more than an intermittent match, an unadvertised, non-promoted, in essence, match? You might.
“But Lashley has got to get hot. Now, if Lashley got hot, It would make a great poster, wouldn’t it, Lashley and Lesnar?”
Being impressed with Samoa Joe: “Joe just always needed a chance,” Ross said. “I would have no issues with a Brock Lesnar/Samoa Joe match somewhere down the road. I’d buy it. What’s more exciting to you, Samoa Joe versus Brock Lesnar or Samoa Joe versus Bobby Lashley? We all know the answer. With all due respect, it’s Samoa Joe versus Brock Lesnar, which goes back to my statement that Lashley has got to get hot and he ain’t right now. It doesn’t mean that he can’t be!”
