Bobby Lashley Gets 'Fired' For Attacking A Referee And Shoving Adam Pearce On 12/12 WWE Raw

Bobby Lashley got "fired" at the end of the December 12 episode of WWE Raw.

On the December 5 episode, Lashley accidentally hit WWE producer Pete Williams with a Spear; during a brawl with Seth Rollins, "The Visionary" got out of the way, and Williams took the hit. WWE official Adam Pearce let Lashley off with a warning but noted that his hands would be tied if it happened again.

The following week, Lashley faced Rollins in a #1 Contender's Match for the WWE United States Championship. At one point in the bout, the referee got knocked down, and Lashley hit Rollins with a Spear. The official couldn't make the count, and when Lashley went for another Spear, Rollins countered it into a Pedigree for the win. "The All Mighty" was infuriated after the bell, and he attacked the referee. Pearce came to the ring and got in Lashley's face. Tensions continued to rise, and when Lashley tried to walk away, Pearce told the former WWE Champion that he was fired before the show went off the air.

Fightful will continue to monitor the situation and provide information as it becomes available.
