Bobby Lashley has been removed from the Road to WrestleMania.
At Elimination Chamber, Lashley was removed from the WWE Championship Match after his pod door broke and fell onto him following a Powerbomb from Seth Rollins to Austin Theory. Lashley was helped to the back by WWE Officials and did not return.
WWE later revealed that Lashley entered concussion protocol and was traveling back to the United States under medical supervision and would undergo additional testing. The updates didn't stop there, however, as former WWE writer Kazeem Famuyide reported on The Ringer Wrestling Show that Lashley would undergo shoulder surgery and he will be out for at least 4 months.
Now, the former WWE Champion has been removed from the advertising for the March 5 WWE Live event at Madison Square Garden. The All Mighty was previously scheduled to challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship, but now the famed arena is saying only that The Beast will be in action.
