Could Lashley win the WWE Championship?
Reports have suggested that Bobby Lashley could potentially shock the WWE Universe by defeating WWE Champion Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at Backlash.
It has been rumoured that MVP was moved from a behind the scenes producer into a full-time on camera talent due to Paul Heyman, executive director of Monday Night Raw, wanting to use MVP as a mouthpiece for a World Champion.
That World Champion? Bobby Lashley.
Now, in my opinion, it is WAY to early to take the WWE Championship off of Drew McIntyre. The first ever British born WWE Champion only won the WWE Championship back at WrestleMania 36 in April, defeating Brock Lesnar in the main event.
McIntyre’s run so far as shown for good television, considering the circumstances. Drew McIntyre has had to deal with the challenges of being the top babyface and World Champion during a pandemic in which zero fans have been allowed to attend shows.
However, Raw’s live viewership continues to plummet throughout all of this. Perhaps WWE may be looking for a short term shock result in an effort to spike dwindling ratings.
