“The only thing that doesn’t interest me is a Street Fight. I think what I can do with [my fists] is going to be more brutal than what I can do with a kendo stick or with a table or with a chair. I don’t think we even need that and I think he feels the same way. I think he’d rather suplex me than swing a stick at me. So many people want to see it that a Fight Pit would be cool. Put on some MMA gloves and get in a cage. I think any one of those things interest me.”
Lashley also reflected on beating Lesnar for the title at the Royal Rumble event, calling the win just one part of a great year for him.
“The first time you win it is always that shock of winning it for the first time,” he said. “It’s breaking that barrier, getting to that next level. This time was a little bit different, however; the person I had to beat to get it made it that much more special. Those were two big goals I had coming back: definitely to win the WWE Championship and then to have that match with Brock that everybody’s been wanting for years. It’s huge. This has been a great year for me.”
Bobby Lashley is set to defend his WWE Title inside of the Elimination Chamber at the namesake premium live event later this month against the aforementioned Brock Lesnar as well as AJ Styles, Austin Theory, Seth Rollins and the man who took part in the company’s first-ever Fight Pit, Riddle.
