WWE fans are eagerly anticipating a potential showdown between Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley after the latter was announced as a SmackDown star following the WWE Draft. Lashley has his sights set on Reigns and the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, and many fans have reacted positively to the possible match-up. WWE Hall of Famer John Bradshaw Layfield (JBL) also believes that Lashley could be the one to dethrone Reigns, saying that “Bobby could be the guy to stop Roman Reigns.”
JBL has a history with Lashley, having lost his first title and the US Championship to him. He spoke highly of Lashley’s potential and how he has reached every bit of it. JBL also mentioned that Lashley looks better than ever and is in the best shape of his life. The Hall of Famer believes that Lashley has that edge about him and knows that he’s not going to be around forever, making him a crucial piece of WWE moving forward.
Lashley and Reigns have faced each other twice in singles matches, with Lashley winning the first encounter cleanly at the 2018 Extreme Rules event. Reigns would secure the win in their second bout a few nights later on RAW. Many fans are hoping for a rematch between the two stars, and it remains to be seen if WWE will make it happen.
With Lashley’s move to SmackDown, the possibility of a match between him and Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship has increased. Lashley’s impressive physique and in-ring skills make him a formidable opponent, and fans are excited to see what he can bring to the table on SmackDown. As JBL said, Lashley could be the one to stop Reigns and become the top dog in WWE once again.
