KSI Names Bobby Lashley As Potential Opponent, Lashley Responds

KSI expresses his interest in potentially facing Bobby Lashley, and the former WWE Champion responds.

At WWE WrestleMania 39, KSI was revealed as the PRIME energy mascot that came to the ring for Logan Paul’s match with Seth Rollins. KSI then took a frog splash through a table when Rollins moved out of the way and pulled KSI into Paul’s path.

In a WrestleMania 39 Exclusive, KSI discussed his WrestleMania debut. He noted that no one knew he was the one in the PRIME suit, and he tried to throw the fans off his trail by saying he was leaving Los Angeles ahead of the show.

“No one knew it was me,” KSI said. “I mean I guess a few fans were speculating like, ‘Could it? Surely not.’ I tried putting something on my story to be like, ‘Oh, I’m leaving LA,’ just to trick some of my fans. But then when I came in, out of the ring, like, ‘Yo, what’s up?’ down the ramp, everyone was like, ‘Oh my god, who is it?’ Then it was so funny.

“There was one point where I was just blocking people’s way. People were screaming behind me like, ‘Get out of the way. You’re too big, I can’t see. Damn it.’ So I started kneeling to try and stop blocking people’s view, and I was like, ‘Logan needs help,’ so I came through, dragged him out. Then Seth’s a scary dude, bro.”

After KSI noted that it was cool to see WWE legends backstage, as he used to play as them in WWE video games, he was asked about potentially competing in a match. He responded by stating that you never know, and he named Bobby Lashley as his opponent of choice.

“You never know, you never know,” KSI said. “If I was so to choose an opponent, I don’t even know who I’d want to… Bobby Lashley. Bobby Lashley, put me in with the beast. Why not? He’s literally triple me. I’m up for the challenge. YOLO.”

Lashley then responded by teasing his interest in the bout.

The day before WrestleMania 39 kicked off, Lashley stated that he was free on Saturday and Sunday, and he dared anyone to step up.
