This week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw featured a big heel turn from Bobby Lashley, and Lio Rush also caused quite the commotion at ringside during Lashley’s match with Kevin Owens.
After defeating Owens, Lashley wrapped KO’s leg around the ring post and got some major heat in the process.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that there was a long discussion in regards to whether or not WWE should turn Bobby Lashley heel.
Ultimately the decision was made to turn him, because the company needs heels, and they needed a way to write Owens off TV so he can deal with his injury.
It’s also being reported that Vince McMahon was the one in Lio Rush’s ear during the segment, and Vince was personally feeding him lines.
