Bobby Lashley May Require Shoulder Surgery

As noted earlier, WWE released a storyline update on Bobby Lashley after today's WWE Elimination Chamber event from the Jeddah Super Dome in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Lashley had entered concussion protocol.

According to former WWE writer Kazeem Famuyide from The Ringer Wrestling Show, Bobby Lashley is actually dealing with a legitimate shoulder injury and could be out of action for a while. The injury reportedly happened at the Royal Rumble against Brock Lesnar.

"I have it under good authority that Bobby Lashley is shoot hurt and has been hurt since the Rumble match," Kazeem Famuyide revealed. "If you noticed he hasn't worked any RAWs. He hasn't really defended his title. He was shoot hurt at the [Brock] Lesnar  Rumble match. Again, I was wondering how they were going to work him in there while being hurt. I'm assuming this concussion protocol thing is the way to get him out there.

"From what I'm told, it's for at least four months. Shoulder surgery. I'm hearing that he might not even make it to Mania. From what I'm told he is shoot hurt and should be out for some time."
