• Bobby Lashley Is Open To A WWE vs. AEW Fight In Bellator
During a recent appearance on the Battleground podcast, current WWE Champion Bobby Lashley talked about his Mixed Martial Arts career in Bellator and even addressed the possibility of fighting former WWE Superstar Jack Swagger (now known as Jake Hager in AEW), who is also having professional MMA fights for Bellator.
Here’s what The All Mighty had to say:
“I think Hager, I think he’s doing great. I think he’s moving up. He almost got the Fedor fight. I think he was politicking for that for a while, but a fight with him is something that would be cool, and I would definitely do it.
I would probably fight anybody if I went back to fighting, so I’m not saying it’s one particular person I’m looking for. Wrestling fans would love to see one wrestler fight another wrestler, and I think he’s probably the only one that’s fighting right now that’s an option.
It’s not one of those things that I want to call him out, but it would be a cool fight, and definitely entertaining.”
