The March 1 episode of Monday Night Raw will go down in history as the night that Bobby Lashley finally became WWE Champion.
Bobby Lashley first got an opportunity at the WWE Championship at Vengeance 2007 when he was part of a WWE Championship Challenge Fatal 5-Way that also included Mick Foley, Randy Orton, Booker T, and John Cena. In the 14 years since then, Bobby Lashley has taken many different career paths.
He took the time to train and fought in professional MMA and even spent some time as the champion of IMPACT Wrestling but March 1, 2021, is the day that he defeated The Miz to finally become WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Many of his peers from all corners of the wrestling world reached out and reacted via social media to the historic moment. You can view some of the reactions below.
