New Report Says WWE’s Bobby Lashley Will Need Surgery

Earlier today, WWE released an update on Bobby Lashley’s condition following his fall in the chamber match at Elimination Chamber, but a new report says WWE’s statement was to cover up a actual injury. Kazeem Famuyide of The Ringer Wrestling Show reports that Lashley is set to undergo shoulder surgery and will be out for at least 4 months. According to the report, Lashley has been injured since his match with Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, and that’s why he was trying not to land on his shoulder during Lesnar’s German Suplex barrage.

“I have on good authority that Lashley is shot and has been injured since the Rumble match,” Famuyide said. “If you noticed, he didn’t work any Raw. He didn’t really defend his title. He got shot in Lesnar’s match at the Rumble.”

“From what I’ve been told, it’s for at least 4 months. Shoulder surgery. I hear he might not even make it to Mania,” Famuyide said.

WWE’s official statement read: “The official statement reads ‘Bobby Lashley has entered concussion protocol and will return to the United States under medical supervision for further evaluation.

WWE built a reason for Lashley’s injury during the Men’s Chamber Match. Seth Rollins was wreaking havoc on Austin Theory, which led to a shocking moment when Theory slammed through the glass and slammed into Bobby Lashley. Lashley fell and looked quite dazed, and after not getting up for a minute, medical personnel rushed in and removed him from the game.

Hope Lashley recovers soon and we wish him a speedy recovery.
