• Real Reason Behind Bobby Lashley’s Heel Turn On RAW

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.
