Bobby Lashley On Which WWE Stars Could Transition Into MMA

Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley

During an interview with Sportskaeda, Bobby Lashley revealed that he believes several WWE stars could easily make the transition into MMA. Here’s what he had to say:

I wouldn’t say just one person. I mean, hell, I was just talking to somebody yesterday about it because there is, of course, weight classes. I say, the one thing in wrestling is if you’re athletic and you have some kind of martial arts background, it will get you a long ways. I think someone like Shelton Benjamin can definitely do it.

[Baron] Corbin! I held mitts for him and I was like, ‘Dang, he has hands.’ He could do it. He would need to get his wrestling down but he could do it. I don’t know who else would want to do it. Chad Gable, little Shorty G! He has some Greco experience and Greco experience will take you a long ways.

Hell, I don’t know, go down the roster. Cesaro, I think he might be able to do something too. I don’t know if he has a background in athletics but he’s a very athletic person.

Drew! [McIntyre] – but he might end up biting somebody’s head off and getting thrown in jail.

But it is a possibility. Anybody can fight, man.
