Bobby Lashley To Make Ring Return At WrestleMania 38

Omos vs. Bobby Lashley is now set for WrestleMania 38.

Lashley has been out of action since the WWE Elimination Chamber in February, where he lost the WWE Title to current champion Brock Lesnar after being pulled from the Chamber match due to a legitimate injury suffered the month before in the Royal Rumble title win over Lesnar. Lashley reportedly did not need to undergo surgery for the shoulder injury, but he is returning ahead of schedule as there was talk of the veteran Superstar being on the shelf for around 4 months.


Tonight's RAW saw Omos win another Handicap Match, this time over The Viking Raiders. The quick match awkwardly ended in a Count Out after Omos dropped Erik and sent him to the floor. Kevin Patrick interviewed Omos after the match, and he dismissed the idea of anyone being able to stand up to him at WrestleMania 38, touting how he is still undefeated and able to dominate everyone. Lashley's music then hit and out he came to a babyface pop, with no sign of MVP. Lashley and Omos went at it and while Omos dominated at first, Lashley ducked a clothesline and finally knocked the big man off his feet with a collision in the middle of the ring. Omos yelled back at Lashley from ringside while Lashley taunted him from in the ring. Fans chanted "Bobby!" as he looked up at the WrestleMania 38 sign, and Omos nodded in agreement.


Omos has numerous singles and Handicap Match wins since defeating his former tag team partner AJ Styles on the January 3 RAW episode. He is undefeated in singles action since the August 30 RAW win over John Morrison, but before that he only had one TV singles loss and that was to current RAW Tag Team Champion Randy Orton on the August 16 RAW.

WrestleMania 38 will take place this Saturday, April 2 and this Sunday, April 3 from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Below is the current announced card, along with related shots from RAW:
