Speaking with Ariel Helwani, Bobby Lashley said this was one of the biggest moments of his career and he needed to take everything Brock Lesnar had in order to prove how good he is as a fighter.

"It was one of the greatest moments, I mean, beating Brock Lesnar, like we talked about earlier this week, beating Brock was going to be a big step in my career, and going out to the main thing that I wanted to do, and you know, as a fighter, I wanted to see what he had, everybody knows Brock's gonna throw you a lot, he's gonna try to hit the F5. He's gonna try to beat you up. He's gonna try to beat you down. I wanted to see if I can take everything that he had, and I did. I took everything he had and then I pinned him at the end. So of course, this is a beautiful victory for me."

Furthermore, Lashley admits his first trip to Suplex City was rough.

"The first time when he threw me with the Suplex City, I think he almost knocked me out. I had to check myself. It was one of those like self-checks. I was like, 'Alright, I'm good. I'm good.' Because that's ultimately what you want. You don't want to just beat somebody without taking what they had. Because then they come back later and say, 'If I would have did this, I would have got you.' But I took everything that he had and after I took everything he had, I still pinned him. So a lot of the questions that I had about Brock were answered in that match."
