When Bobby Lashley left WWE, a lot of fans were left wondering why he was never given the chance to be the top star. Some even suggested that racism was a factor. However, the latest reports are suggesting that it could have been the typical backstage politics that kept him from being given bigger pushes. It is being said that Triple H and Shawn Michaels were burying Lashley in front of management as early as his tryouts.

At one point in time, Bobby Lashley was hoping to follow Brock Lesnar and become the next WWE performer to make the jump over to UFC. That has yet to happen and appears very unlikely right now. Of course, that does not mean that he is bitter towards others who are attempting to make the move. During a recent Give Me Sports interview, Lashley expressed his support towards CM Punk. He also thinks that he will do rather well in MMA.

During a recent interview, Bobby Lashley was asked about a potential fight with Brock Lesnar. Bellator officials have already stated that they are going to heavily pursue Lesnar when his contract with WWE expires next spring. If they are successfully able to outbid UFC, then a potential match between Lesnar and Lashley could take place. When asked who would win, Lashley stated that he would not take the fight if he did not feel that he had a chance to win.
