Dan Lambert has managed the crossover aspect of pro wrestling and MMA well, and it's paid off dividends for several of his fighters.
The American Top Team owner Lambert appeared as a major character on Impact Wrestling last year alongside Bobby Lashley. When Lambert spoke to Fightful.com's James Lynch this weekend, he said he hasn't ruled out a return, and still keeps up with wrestling.
"It was actually a lot of fun. I'm a huge pro wrestling mark, ever since I was a kid. Bobby's in WWE now and he's doing it at the big stage. We'd love to do it again, never say never. We had a great time doing it in Impact," Lambert said. "I'm a Seth Rollins fan, I'm a Bray Wyatt fan, I'm a Finn Balor fan. It's not like the territory days, but I still enjoy it," said Lambert.
In addition, Lambert highlighted the Funks, Briscos, Ric Flair and others as some of his favorites to watch growing up.
One of Lambert's favorites at the moment is interim UFC Welterweight Champion Colby Covington, who told Fightful.com that he wants to meet with Vince McMahon at this week's WWE Raw. Lambert said that what Covington wants, he usually gets.
"Colby visualizes what he wants to do and he goes out and makes his statements, and more than often than not, Colby comes through on what he says he's going to do, so I wouldn't count that out, either," said Lambert.
Covington has made headlines of late as the UFC seemingly plans to strip him of his title, because he isn't ready for Tyron Woodley as soon as they'd like him to be. Lambert doesn't see the point in pulling the interim title from Covington.
"I don't find it necessary to strip the interim championship. The guy just won the belt a month ago. He just underwent a procedure, and he's only going to be out about a month. They didn't do it when GSP fought Bisping and Whittaker was the interim champ. I think it'd be a shame to lose the steam that Colby's built," said Lambert. "He had a sinus issue and he needed some surgery to clean it out and it was actually worse than it thought. He's going to be out upwards of a month, which puts him on track for November."
