Bobby Lashley wants to break Brock Lesnar. That is his main goal going into the Royal Rumble.
Bobby Lashley has been compared to Brock Lesnar for his entire career and that is before bold man even stepped foot into the MMA cage. Through the years, the similarities only continued and a fight between them felt like the ultimate dream match.
After being in the same promotion for four years, Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley are finally going to meet for the WWE World Championship at the Royal Rumble 2022. So far, Brock Lesnar has had fun with Bobby Lashley, calling him a “Brock Lesnar wannabe.”
Bobby Lashley isn't about any of that. Bobby Lashley has made it clear. His goal is to break Brock Lesnar at all costs.
Speaking on the most recent WWE After The Bell, Bobby Lashley called Brock Lesnar a bully and said that bullies never back down until they break and Brock Lesnar wants to be the one to shut down the bully within Brock Lesnar.
"Brock is that guy in the park, that's a bully. a bully is always going to be a bully. The bully is never going to be scared. bullies gonna be this until he gets broke," said Bobby.
Furthermore, Bobby Lashley spoke about the differences between Brock Lesnar and himself including their journey into the world of mixed martial arts with Bobby saying that Brock Lesnar was handed the path to success on a silver platter while he had to earn it.
"When Brock went into did a UFC, Brock had a gym built outside his house. They sent training partners to Brock, they gave Brock a friggin boatload of money. It's easy to train when all you have to do is wake up, stretch, walk outside your house, go work out... everything like that. It's simple to do that. When I started fighting, I was flying down to Florida, doing a training camp for a week, flying over to California, training with Barnett, training with Cormier, training with all these different guys, hopping around, raising three kids on my own. Juggling a schedule that was just me. It was difficult. It wasn't just, 'Hey, I can just roll outside my house and have everything handed to me.'"
Bobby continued, "So this is just another one of those cases where I expect to have to prove to myself prove myself and I can prove myself to anyone. Over the next few weeks. I'm going to be posting some of my training videos so people can see what I do, because I've kind of shut that down a little bit over the past few months. But I'm going to start showing them the kind of training and everything that I go through to get prepared for a fight like this so that people will not just think okay, you know, 'Is Bobby at Brock's level?' Bobby was at Brock's level a long time ago. I'm at a whole different level right now. I think Brock knows that.
"So the same way I was saying I looked at Brock's eyes and I saw that Brock didn't have a soul. Brock was looking into my eyes and he saw that I enjoyed that. I think that scared him a little bit. So, the next few weeks there's going to be a lot of training going on. But then there's going to be a fight and I think we have this thing -- there's going to be some blows because I think right now, we're respecting each other. But there's going to be a time where there's going to be some disrespect, and disrespect happens, we're both gonna have to prove ourselves. So when he says, 'Bobby who?' I'm gonna say, 'Brock who?' because that's what I want to find out."
