Bobby Lashley Recalls WrestleMania 37 Rain Delay WWE

We may not know if Bobby Lashley will be at this year’s WrestleMania, but we now know how he felt about last year.

WrestleMania 37 Night 1 marked the first time WWE was in front of live fans in over a year. The show’s start was delayed with heavy rain came down on Tampa, Florida.

Speaking with Kenny McIntosh of Inside The Ropes, Lashley recalled how he was “ready to explode” when he was told his WrestleMania 37 opener was delayed due to the rain.

Lashley said:

“I was inches away from just running over and punching Drew in the face and telling someone to just grab a camera. I was hyped, I was ready to explode. And then the rain happened and I was like, ‘I can’t bring this down, I don’t know if I can bring it down.’ I was running, I was doing sprints down the hall in the back, and we had some other stuff going on.”

The former two-time WWE Champion continued on to explain how he wanted to have his match despite the weather and how it felt to finally have his showdown with Drew McIntyre:

“I was like, ‘Let’s just go out there, it doesn’t even matter. Let’s go, let’s make this happen, now! Why don’t you guys just get this camera, I’m gonna go punch Drew right in his face right now and see what he does. And let’s just make this happen. Let’s just brawl back here, we got to give them something. And we got to do something, because with all this bottled-up energy right now, it needs to get out.

Then to have the opportunity to go out there, and it not get cancelled, or called off or anything like that was awesome. Because it made them wait just a little bit more. Then suddenly we’re ready and it’s, ‘NOW, give it to them!’ So I was cool with how it all ended up.”

As previously noted, Bobby Lashley is currently out of action with a shoulder injury and lost his WWE Title to Brock Lesnar at Elimination Chamber.

It is still unclear when Lashley will be cleared for action and if he will take part in WrestleMania 38.
