Bobby Lashley And Karrion Kross Engage In A War Of Words Ahead Of Match On 3/8 WWE SmackDown

Tensions continue to rise between Bobby Lashley and Karrion Kross.

Bobby Lashley and Karrion Kross have been feuding throughout 2024, as Kross has formed the Final Testament to clash with Lashley and the Street Profits (Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins). Kross attacked Lashley with a chair on the February 23 episode of WWE SmackDown, and the distraction helped the Authors of Pain (Akam and Rezar) beat the Street Profits.

In a WWE SmackDown Exclusive, Karrion Kross and Paul Ellering sent a message to Lashley.

Karrion Kross: Good evening. I have a message for Bobby Lashley. You’ve at the top of this business for a very long time. But you’ve had everybody fooled around here. You’ve got everybody thinking you’re this untouchable guy, that you’re invincible. I know you now, I see it. That’s a lie, Bobby. Deep down, you are scared to death that you are never gonna stand in a WWE ring again as world champion. It’s funny how that has a way of changing people. But what’s even funnier to me than that is that I’m the one who’s solely responsible for you losing out on the opportunity to compete at WrestleMania. That makes me very, very happy.

Paul Ellering: So Bobby, the question isn’t what you’ve lost, but more can you afford to lose?

Lashley, B-Fab, and the Street Profits then responded, and the former WWE Champion challenged Kross to face him in a singles match.

B-Fab: I know I didn’t hear Karrion say that Bobby is scared. The same man who had to go get two gargoyles to watch his back.

Angelo Dawkins: Scared ain’t in our vocabulary. We gonna take that as disrespect.

Montez Ford: Disrespect. I mean, 2024 is supposed to be our year. We focusing on championship gold and bigger and better things, but it seems as though our revelation is within the Final Testament.

Bobby Lashley: Kross, you’re so desperate to get my attention. Well, congratulations. You have my attention. Here’s where you got it wrong. I don’t fear men like you. So enough of the mind games. Me and you one on one next week. Let’s finish this. Tick tock.

WWE announced that Kross will face Lashley on the March 8 episode of WWE SmackDown. Fightful will have coverage of the show as it airs on March 8.
