There promises to be an action-packed couple of weeks of Raw before the Fastlane PPV on the 10th March. Before we get to that night, the WWE Championship will be on the line next Monday night, as Bobby Lashley will be looking to win his first ever WWE Championship when he takes on The Miz.
Something seems to have switched in the way that Lashley was booked midway through the Elimination Chamber, and there is a sense that this could finally be the push that the dominant star needs. But, could it lead to a first world title reign? And most important, could that then be followed up with the long-awaited showdown between Brock Lesnar and Lashley?
WWE News: Lashley To Win The Title?
Of course, before any plans for the dream match are put in place, Lashley must capture the WWE Championship. There are still questions regarding whether he will do that, as a returning Drew McIntyre could cost him the opportunity to break his long duck for world title glory. It’s almost unthinkable that a superstar of the size of Lashley hasn’t won the championship in the past, but it’s hard to argue against the fact that this is the hottest that he has possibly ever been.
With MVP alongside him, the interest in Lashley has reached new heights, and he is realistically the only superstar that could go toe-to-toe with Lesnar and get the better of the beast. If it is a clean finish next week, then we could see a new champion crowned in super quick time.
WWE News: Could Lesnar Then Return?
There have been rumours for years that Lashley and Lesnar are set to square off in a WWE ring, but this could be the closest that we have come to see it actually happen. WrestleMania is slowly creeping into sight, and there isn’t a bigger night of the year to give the two heavyweights the ring and give them a spotlight to shine.
However, other rumours have indicated that a triple threat match involving Lesnar could be more likely, and despite the initial rumours teasing Keith Lee’s involvement, it could actually be Lashley and McIntyre competing in the match against Lesnar. McIntyre will certainly feel he is due a rematch for the championship, while adding Lesnar and Lashley to the mix could certainly make for a main event match for the ages.
