Kevin Nash says he feels like Bobby Lashley lacks the killer instinct.
In recent years, Lashley has cemented one of his status as the top stars on WWE Raw. He had a lengthy run as the United States Champion, he was prominently featured as a member of The Hurt Business, and he won his first WWE Championship in 2021. Lashley also faced and defeated Brock Lesnar, one of the top stars in the business, at WWE Royal Rumble 2022. But former WWE Champion Kevin Nash says "The All Mighty" is missing something.
Speaking on Kliq This, the WWE Hall of Famer answered a few questions from fans. One of them wondered why Lashley isn't "the guy" and called him a beast. Nash responded by noting that Lashley is a sweetheart, but he seems to be missing something. He somewhat agreed when co-host Sean Oliver wondered if Nash meant Lashey's promo skills. Nash then described how Lashley isn't a killer and used Lesnar as a comparison.
“I love Bobby, he’s a sweetheart. He just always seems to be missing something. I don’t know what it is. Maybe [in response to Oliver asking if he meant Lashley’s promo skills]. I think he across to me like he is a nice guy. He’s not a killer. Bobby Lashley’s just not a killer. He’s a nice fucking guy. Brock Lesnar, he’s a nice guy, [but] he just has that something in him. Yeah [when Oliver says ‘Danger’]. Bobby Lashley, if you said, ‘Please, I’ve had enough,’ I think Bobby would stop. I think Brock would stomp you two more times," Nash said.
Lesnar returned on the January 23 episode of WWE Raw and attacked Lashley. In the Men's Royal Rumble match, Lashley eliminated Lesnar, who then angrily attacked Baron Corbin at ringside.
Pat McAfee recently recalled how he nearly broke his wrist running away from Lesnar at WrestleMania. Check out his comments here.
