WWE: Bobby Lashley returns after a ten-year hiatus
Most WWE fans look heavily forward towards WWE Raw shows that follow a WrestleMania weekend. It is known as the night where we will see surprised debuts and returns. It wasn’t that long ago that former Divas Champion Paige made her main roster debut. Last year we saw Kurt Angle make his return to the company on the night after WrestleMania. This year’s Raw after WrestleMania lived up to the hype. The show opened with a debuting No Way Jose. We also saw the debuts of Authors of Pain and Ember Moon. However, there’s one specific return that I would like to talk about.
About mid-way through we got our typical Elias segment. He got about halfway through the song and none other than Bobby Lashley made his long-awaited return to the WWE. He had not been in a WWE ring in close to ten years. During his first run with the company, he held several belts and was involved in the infamous feud between Vince McMahon and now President Donald Trump. Like we have seen countless amount of times before, wrestlers need to leave the WWE to get better. We saw it with guys like Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre. Now that Lashley is back in the WWE, it will be interesting to see where they go with him.

Among the fans on the internet, they are hoping for a program between Bobby Lashley and current Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar. I also wouldn’t mind seeing him tango with guys Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, and Samoa Joe to name a few. I am not sure if would get something between Elias and Lashley.
If you recall on Smackdown after WrestleMania 33, Nakamura made his main roster debut when the Miz was walking out of the ring. If we get something between them, I don’t see it being a major feud and one that will last until Backlash.
