Bobby Lashley announced on ESPN Radio 1050 in New York that he has signed with TNA and may be appearing at their Victory Road PPV on Sunday. He said that “I just signed with TNA. I try telling people that I left wrestling abruptly. I’ve always wanted to come back to wrestling, but I wanted to fight… I talked to Dixie Carter, the owner of TNA, and she was really helpful. She wanted to help out my MMA career and help me give back to professional wrestling. My schedule this week is Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and I’m done for the entire month so I can concentrate on my fighting.”
He was also asked who would win in a fight between him and UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar. Lashley replied, “I win… I’m not going to say anything bad on Brock because Brock is the champion. My sights are set on Brock and I’m not saying that I want to fight him because he is the wrestling guy… I am saying that because I am a heavyweight fighter and he’s the heavyweight champ. Eventually, I do want to fight Brock for that title.” Lashley claimed he had a game plan in mind of how to beat Lesnar but will not disclose it before the fight happens.
