On Tuesday afternoon, Pearce issued a statement where he rescinded his "firing" of Lashley.

Pearce stated, "I'd like to address what happened to end Monday Night Raw between myself and Bobby Lashley. First and foremost, despite what I said last night, Bobby Lashley is not fired. That said, Bobby has repeatedly crossed the line. Last night, he physically crossed two referees and put his hands on me, not to mention spearing WWE official Pete Williams last week. All of that behavior is unacceptable. All of it will be addressed and it will have repercussions. Despite that, I feel I need to apologize to the WWE Universe for the way I conducted myself. In the heat of the moment, I allowed emotions to get the better of me and, frankly, I said some things I shouldn't have. I'll never apologize for having passion, but looking back, it's obvious that I didn't channel mine in the right direction. I regret that. Bobby and I are going to meet later this week man-to-man and discuss the ramifications of what he's done and more importantly, how we can move forward and do business together with the respect that we've always had up to now. Again, I formally rescind Bobby Lashley's termination and I sincerely apologize for my part in escalating an already volatile situation."

Welcome back, Bobby Lashley.
