• Current WWE Star Was Offered Roles In Stranger Things & Mortal Kombat
During an interview with Sidewalk Entertainment, former WWE Champion Bobby Lashley talked about wanting to do movies after his days in professional wrestling end.
The All Mighty said he has done some movies in the past and also turned down roles in some shows and movies because he wanted to pursue MMA and pro-wrestling.
Below is what the 46-year-old WWE RAW Superstar said:
“I did a handful of movies when I was in between when I was fighting for a while, from my first run in WWE to my second run.
I did about four or five (movies). Little, small parts. They needed that big bad villain to come in there, and I played that part. Of course, I got killed every time. I was offered things afterward.
I was offered Mortal Kombat. There was Stranger Things. There were a lot of different ones that I was offered. At the time, I wasn’t really focused on doing that.
I was fighting at the time, I was trying to get back in professional wrestling. The acting part was something that I was interested in, but I don’t think it was the right timing.
When I came back to WWE, I started doing more acting classes, working on that, and now I’m more open to doing it. We have some different projects in line right now.
I can see myself kind of moving into a bigger role and doing some more movies when I slow it down in professional wrestling.”
