On this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Bobby Lashley finally made his long-awaited return to the WWE. After serving his suspension, he wasted little time putting the rest of the roster on notice by destroying Austin Theory with a spear. Lashley promised to take part in and win the men’s Royal Rumble Match when he got back.
He is one of the favorites going into the match because of his potent 2022 and a violent streak that few other players on the roster can match. He will be inspired to win the 30-man battle royal to earn a spot in the main event of WrestleMania 39. The All Mighty exude an abundance of strength, aggression, and fortitude.
Though other potential superstars could benefit from the victory, WWE will have to weigh the benefits and drawbacks of booking him to win the entire match. In light of this, there are three arguments in favour of Bobby Lashley winning the men’s Royal Rumble Match later this month.
Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley have unfinished business
Seth “Freakin” Rollins, Cody Rhodes, and Sami Zayn have all been mentioned as potential opponents for Roman Reigns in the future. While we agree that a matchup between The Tribal Chief and all of these superstars would be spectacular.
Although the rubber match hasn’t yet taken place, WWE has a free shot at booking it if they decide to give the former MMA fighter the victory in the Royal Rumble Match. The Head of the Table and The All Mighty will square off for the undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Speaking of money, this potential matchup might have more intriguing undertones if you watched the most recent RAW episode.
WWE might schedule a Hurt Business versus Bloodline feud
Bobby Lashley’s spectacular return and obliteration of Austin Theory during this week’s RAW captured the spotlight, and rightfully so. However, those of you with keen eyes will have become more enthused about what transpired after the segment. Even though Lashley refused to do business with his former manager, WWE will not permit this reunion to take place. There is too much money invested in The Hurt Business coming together for this to be a mere tease. The band was one of the best in recent memory.
The transition from the upper mid-card to the main event
In 2022, Bobby Lashley had a great run as the American champion. He battled everyone and ruled for a very long time as the champion. Fans clamoured for him to move up to the main event, but he fought for the secondary title the entire year. Lashley now has a chance to compete for the award he truly deserves the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship since he is no longer the United States Champion. The Men’s Royal Rumble Match victory and a subsequent title shot at WrestleMania 39 are the most effective ways to accomplish this.
