During a recent interview with Real Sport, GFW Superstar Bobby Lashley discussed Alberto El Patron (f.k.a Alberto Del Rio in WWE) being stripped off the GFW World Title due to his domestic violence incident with Paige, Ric Flair being hospitalized & more. Below are the highlights:
On Alberto El Patron being suspended and stripped off the GFW World Title:
“I don’t think it says anything about the company. We’re all individuals. If we go out there and do something we have to hold ourselves accountable for the things that we do. The company has to do what they have to do. It’s an unfortunate situation; I don’t know all of the details because I try to stay out of that. My business and my contract says for me to be a performer and do that part – not to do any of the backstage or office stuff. The one things I do know is, who needs the title? That’s me. Give me my title back. I could care less what’s going on with him. I’m just here to compete and now there’s an open title. That’s what I’m focused on.”
On Ric Flair being hospitalized:
“I’ve been traveling so I don’t really know what’s going on with Ric but as far as what he’s done in this sport – he’s a pioneer of this sport. You can’t say professional wrestling and not have name like Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan and Rock, some of those names.
It’s sad to hear that he’s going through this right now but it’s The Nature Boy… the guy survived a plane crash! He’s one of the toughest guys both inside and outside of the ring and he’s a person everybody looks up to. We’re all pulling for him and I hope everything goes well.”
