Bobby Lashley will defend the WWE Title against Drew McIntyre in the opening match of tonight’s WrestleMania 37.
During an appearance on WWE’s The Bump, Lashley was asked about his match with Drew at Backlash 2020. This was the last time he was pinned or submitted.
“Absolutely, because you know what, if you watch that match back, I had that match won last year also. There were some distractions that caused him to go over and then what kind of upsets me the most and why I have so much heat with Drew, is that I hadn’t had an opportunity to go after that title for an entire year. Drew’s been running and he’s been giving everyone else opportunities. Goldberg came back. All these other guys had opportunities, but the one man that was going to beat him, he stayed away from. Drew always talks about being the toughest on the roster and he needs to toughen the roster up. Why hadn’t he given me a chance until now? I had to go and take my chance from him. I had to go and take the title from him and then have him chase it. Why is that? That’s what I don’t understand. If you want to toughen up the locker room, put the toughest guy on top. I’m the toughest guy on top.”
