Bobby Lashley suffered a shoulder injury in the Royal Rumble and was forced to withdraw from the Elimination Chamber match last night. He is currently in Birmingham, Alabama, receiving surgery. The surgery is expected to keep him out of action for four months. While there isn’t any indication as to when he might return to action, we’ll be keeping an eye on his progress.
Lashley looked out of the pod when the glass shattered on him. Luckily, several people were there to help him backstage. Although Lashley was injured, the WWE Championship was on the line. Luckily, Lashley made it to the other side and will face Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 38.
The Elimination Chamber is a unique event in which six competitors compete. The first two start inside the ring, while the rest of the competitors start inside pods. Each pod opens for five minutes. Superstars can be eliminated by pin-fall or submission. When all six are eliminated, the winner becomes the WWE Champion. Bobby Lashley won the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble by defeating Brock Lesnar.
It’s hard to believe that Bobby Lashley’s shoulder injury happened during the Elimination Chamber match. He was initially declared out of the match before entering the ring. He was subsequently escorted to the back by medical staff. His injury is believed to have been caused by a buckle bomb from Seth Rollins during the Royal Rumble. The injury is so severe that Lashley may be out for four months.
Bobby Lashley is less than a week into his second WWE Championship reign. He will face five opponents in the Elimination Chamber on February 19 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. There are still some questions surrounding the title match, but we’re still waiting to see what happens in this match.
Last week’s WWE Elimination Chamber featured some brutal matches. Bobby Lashley was the defending champion, but he had to withdraw due to injury. Brock Lesnar won the event and was angry that Bobby Lashley couldn’t enter the match. In the end, Lashley was left with an injured shoulder.
In addition to the injuries suffered in the Elimination Chamber, Lashley is currently suffering from a shoulder injury. He is currently traveling back to the United States under the watchful eye of medical staff. However, he may still face a challenger. The WWE didn’t make any official announcement about the other competitors yet. They will reveal their opponents in an upcoming RAW episode.
