• Bobby Lashley Wanted To Get Fat By Putting On 70 Lbs For A Depression Storyline
Former WWE Champion Bobby Lashley has one of the best physiques in all of professional wrestling.
However, he wanted to ruin his look for a new character that he wanted to do a couple of years ago.
During an appearance on the NotSam Wrestling podcast, Lashley revealed that he pitched a depression storyline to Vince McMahon.
Below is what The All Mighty said:
“I told Vince a year ago, I think a year or two ago, I told him, ‘I want to do this character.’ He said, ‘What is it?’
I said, ‘If I get beat one time, I want to go into the severe depression and put on like 40, 50, 60, or 70 pounds and just be fat, and then be a completely different character and then have like somebody like an MVP, or somebody that’s on my side, kind of like, pull me back and then have the crowd watch his transition back to me.’
He said, ‘There’s no way you can do that.’ I said, ‘Man, I think I can.’”
