The question has been whispered in the locker room for quite some time. What is the future of Lashley and Pro Wrestling? Is Lashley done? Will Lashley leave wrestling and pursue a career and future in MMA? If you ask Dan Lambert, the owner of American Top Team where Lashley trains in MMA and fights under their banner, Lashey is wasting his time in wrestling. Dan Lambert wants Lashley to focus fully on MMA and forget about wrestling.
Lashley has a major decision to make on IMPACT this week as the pressure continues to grow. Many people here feel that Lashley can do both, that Walking Armageddon can train and compete in MMA and can continue to wrestle every Thursday night. He is that good.
Is Dan Lambert being selfish? Is Lashley being stretched too thin? Lashley passes the eye test, that is to say that Lashley looks to be in top physical condition and loves to push himself to even higher levels. We have reached out to Bobby for comment and he said he will address this situation on Thursday night and he wants to talk to Jim Cornette first.
All we can do is hope that Lashley stays on IMPACT, but his contemporaries might feel differently. If Lashley leaves, that allows the door to open for someone else to take his vacated spot.
Don’t miss IMPACT this week to find out what the future of Lashley really is and we can put this debate to bed. From all of us here, we certainly hope Lashley stays put on Thursday nights.
