Bobby Lashley is a well-known figure in WWE, having previously won the championship twice. Despite this, he was not present at this year’s WrestleMania. And he has been attempting to start a feud with another wrestler in recent weeks.
However, it appears that he has now identified a suitable opponent. Following Lashley’s win at the Andre the Giant Battle Royal 2023. Bronson Reed challenged him on the RAW after WrestleMania.
This week on the red brand, the two heavyweights finally faced off in a surprisingly solid bout.
However, during the match, both stars were counted out. During a recent episode of WWE’s The Bump, Bronson Reed commented on his match against Bobby on Monday Night RAW. Referring to it as a “Big Meaty Men Slappin’ Meat” encounter.
The wrestler also reminded fans that Lashley was unable to defeat him in the bout. Despite being a former two-time WWE Champion.
“I’m a big fan of what Big E once said, ‘Big sweaty men slappin’ meat.’ I think myself and Bobby [Lashley], while being very different, you know, he’s this big body-builder, shredded type guy, I’m this big powerlifting type guy, people love seeing meat get slammed to the mat, and that’s what we bring,” Bronson Reed said. “Even not at 100%, I took it to Bobby, and he couldn’t beat me.”

I will never understand why the WWE broke up this faction. I mean, it could have been bigger than The Bloodline….God forbid letting THAT happen.
That would mean putting Bobby Lashley over VKM's favorite golden child, Roman Reigns.
