Bobby Lashley is calling his next shot.
On Monday, Lashley became the new WWE Champion, easily dispatching of The Miz. Though Lashley has long expressed his desire to face Brock Lesnar, "The Beast Incarnate" will have to work his way back up the ladder according to Lashley.
Speaking to ViBe & Wrestling, Lashley discussed Lesnar's place in the WWE Title picture.
"Drew beat Brock so of course he is a little bit upset but at the end of the day in order to be the champion you got to beat the man, it's like everybody always says, and was quoted by Ric Flair, 'To be the man you got to beat the man' and Drew is the man. I mean, I helped The Miz beat Drew but Drew has been the man, so I think all the focus should be on Drew. If Brock wants to be back in the picture, Brock is gonna have to work his way back up to the title shot as there is a lot of people waiting at the front door; myself, Braun, The Miz and several other people that want to have their shot at the title so he is not the man. Of course, that fight, everybody would love to have some time in my career just because of the similarities between Brock and I, but at the end of the day if Brock comes back I welcome that challenge but is up to him, if he doesn´t, Drew is the man," said Lashley.
Lesnar hasn't been seen on WWE television since losing to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36.
