Bobby Lashley has now weighed in on how he thinks WWE views AEW.
While doing media throughout the week, many WWE wrestlers have weighed in on WWE vs. AEW as the latter has further established itself as the number two promotion thanks to strong television ratings and pay-per-view buys.
Speaking to Steven Muehlhausen of DAZN, Bobby Lashley gave his thought on the current landscape in wrestling.
"I think it's great right now. I think there's a lot of competition. I think we're doing some big things, and we're moving into a big season for us, with some big news coming around. I think that it's a good time to be a wrestling fan, and it's a good time for a wrestler with a good time to step up for everyone. Everybody always says competition is good. I don't think really we have any serious competition. But the fans like it, the fans like the fact that there are other things going on that forces us to step up," he said.
Asked if the competition drives him, Lashley replied, "Yeah, it actually does. I think myself and a lot of the other guys wish some of the other competition does step up because we're ready. If you look at our roster, our roster is deep. We have something different. We have something special. There's a couple of things with it. There's one to have great wrestlers, and there's another thing to have superstars. We’re chalk-loaded with both. We have guys that are just pure superstars, and you can take outside of our wrestling world will do other things, and they're going to be superstars. And we have some guys that are in the dressing room that are just great wrestlers. We have a little bit of everything. I think everyone here is like, if we need to step up, we have all the talent to be able to do it."
Lashley is set to be part of Team Raw in the five-on-five elimination match at WWE Survivor Series. Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Survivor Series beginning at 7 p.m. ET with the kick-off show.
