• Bad News For RAW Star
Bobby Lashley turned heel on last week’s episode of RAW after he attacked Kevin Owens and ‘injured’ him in storyline.
According to the Dirty Sheets, Bobby Lashley wanted to be a heel from the get-go (when he returned to WWE). However, WWE officials convinced him to be a babyface as Lashley would’ve had a better chance of facing Brock Lesnar that way (and facing Lesnar is one of Lashley’s main goals).
Lashley and the WWE Creative Team had a meeting recently where they discussed that a heel turn was needed.
Vince McMahon was previously against a Lashley heel turn, but he agreed on this because Lashley could then be used as a credible heel opponent for Roman Reigns for a future Universal Title feud and that’s the main reason behind Lashley turning heel.
With that being said, Lashley’s heel turn is bad news for RAW’s former Universal Champion Finn Balor.
In his first feud as a heel, Lashley will squash Balor. Seeds for this feud were planted on this week’s RAW when Lashley interrupted Balor and mocked his size.
