He was a collegiate national champion wrestler, then parlayed that into a successful career as a WWE employee. If you thought I was talking about UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, think again. The formula might be the same, but Bobby Lashley is trying to get to where Lesnar currently is.
“Brock has obviously done exceptionally well in the short period of time he’s been fighting,” Lashley said of his former professional wrestling co-worker. “Anyone who is in this profession would like that kind of success.”
If Lashley continues to improve at this rate, he will be well on his way to following in Lesnar’s gigantic footsteps. Although the journey will be a lengthy one, he thinks his combination of hoopla and talent will ultimately get him there.
“This is a results-oriented business, and it’s up to me to take advantage of the opportunity I have been given,” Lashley said. “Of course I want to make it to the highest levels of this business. Who doesn’t? I’m not expecting anything to be given to me, though.
Lesnar has sketched out the blueprint, and Lashley is following it to a tee.
