WWE Raw Legends Night did have its memorable moments, but two men walked out of the place fuming. This would be none other than Bobby Lashley and his manager MVP.
The two were extremely confident going into the ring, as Lashley was booked to fight the ‘Bro’ Matt Riddle. The behemoth had dominantly won hid previous matches, decimating Jeff Hardy last week.
As the match began it looked as if the same was going to happen to Riddle. Recuperating from an early onslaught by his opponent, Lashley bounced back and began manhandling Riddle.
Just as he was about to finish Riddle, the latter found some final strength to fight back. This all went to vain when ‘The All-Mighty’ locked Riddle in the Full Nelson, his famous submission hold that has put out many Superstars.
Riddle eventually tapped, but the official did not ring the bell! MVP and Lashley immediately began arguing with the referee, but he claimed that he did not see the tap himself and therefore, it didn’t count.
In the heat of the argument, Riddle capitalized and rolled up Lashley for the pin. The shock victory infuriated both Lashley and MVP, who immediately went to blast the official.
Riddle escaped with a narrow victory, but we doubt this is the last he’ll be seeing of The Hurt Business. Bobby Lashley never forgets, and he probably will finish the business next week on Raw.
Riddle and Bobby Lashley have big plans in store for them in WWE
The ‘Bro’ has been praised all around for his performances inside and outside the ring. His character selling in promos has appreciated by fans and even received praise from WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan.
Reports suggest that Vince McMahon sees a young Shawn Michaels in Riddle, and has plans to give him a big push. Lashley on the other hand has been the powerhouse he is meant to be, and the match was a win-win for both stars.
We will surely be seeing a lot more of both as Raw continues- business as usual.
