Bobby Lashley getting a run with the WWE Title? Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/05/2020 at 11:15 AM
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com is reporting that MVP was working as a Producer for WWE but was furloughed due to the budget cuts. Meltzer noted that Paul Heyman wanted to use MVP as Bobby Lashley's mouthpiece for a potential title run and that led to MVP transitioning roles.
Regarding Lashley challenging Drew McIntyre for the WWE Title at Backlash, Paul Davis of WrestlingNews.co wrote the following:
"I was told that the Lashley-McIntyre feud will continue beyond Backlash and into the July pay-per-view and possibly into a stipulation match at Summerslam so there is plenty of time to put the title on Lashley if that is the direction."
Lashley has reportedly been pushing for a match with Lesnar since he return to the company, and with Lesnar expected back for Summerslam, there is a new wave of speculation that Lashley vs. Lesnar could be happening at the event.
