His style always reminded me of Goldberg, big power combos and a silent intense style, now I would say he’s almost a combination of Lesnar and Goldberg mixing up amateur wrestling and MMA in with the power moves. Two of his signature moves previously were the spear and running powerslam but I’m guessing WWE have blocked him from using those due to Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman using those moves as finishers. Lashley does need a decent finisher as a standing vertical suplex just isn’t effective enough, it’s a good set up for a finisher. Maybe Lashley could start using the jackhammer incorporating the delayed suplex into the slam for the finish.

I’ve always been a Lashley fan and think WWE would have a better shot of establishing him as a top star than Roman Reigns, but please no more cheesy interviews about his sisters!!

Lashley is so bad at delivering promos - he looks so nervous and thats hes constantly trying to remember what he was supposed to say

Reigns looks on a different level to Lashley and look how bad he seemed when Cena destroyed him

Lashley is another Brock destructive in the ring terrible on the mic he needs someone who can speak for him either a Heyman or something similar.

Turn him heel and give him a mouth-piece, maybe Heyman as they have history together.

Pushing him as a babyface is dumb as he will never get over at the level they want him to as his promo skills are terrible. I say this as a big fan of the guy, he’s just being used the wrong way.

his one and only attribute is his physique

WWE won't use him at all the way he probably thought they would by signing him back. Just another talent the " bought " to hurt the already struggling TNA, Impact or whatever they call themselves this week.

Bobby Lashley was first choice to face Lesnar at Summerslam. They're reconsidering due to the lukewarm reception to the Zayn feud but after Raw this week it's looking like they might be steering back into that. 

All he's got to do is pin Roman clean and he'll basically be the top face in the company. That's how they made Strowman after all.

Bobby , I don’t think would be the top face with Seth and Braun still around. It’s almost like WWE has a big mixer and they stir the pot pull something out , go with it for a month or so , then try something new.

Strowman has personality though and can easily connect with the crowd.

Lashley is dull and boring and with exception of his physique - has no qualities to succeed as a top face in the WWE
