Lashley Reportedly Joins WWE, Gallows Denies Rumors, Kanellis
Sunday, February 25, 2018
Bobby Lashley worked for WWE for a number of years before leaving and pursuing an MMA career. He eventually decided to continue wrestling and ended up working for Impact Wrestling. Lashley remained a top star in Impact for years until he left the promotion earlier this year. Ever since then, Lashley has reportedly been in talks to return to WWE, and now it looks like he'll be coming back after all. Brad Shepard of Bodyslam.net has reported that Bobby Lashley and WWE have come to terms on an agreement to have Lashley return soon. No word on when Lashley is expected to come back just yet, but WWE does reportedly want to have Lashley face Brock Lesnar shortly after WrestleMania.
As one of the most dominating tag teams competing in Japan at the time, fans were excited to see Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson debut in WWE back in 2016. The two have since won the Raw Tag Team Champions and are now currently teaming up with Finn Balor on Raw occasionally. A few rumors floating around have suggested that Gallows and Anderson have not been happy ever since coming to WWE, but Gallows himself denies that he or Anderson are unhappy. “Those rumors are completely false. It is just internet mumbo-jumbo. Karl Anderson and I are incredibly happy working in WWE and for the WWE Universe." Gallows said on the Overnight Crowd podcast. When speaking about their goals for the future in WWE, Gallows stated, "we want to be in the RAW tag team title picture. It’s just what is in our plans coming up in the near future.”
Mike and Maria Kanellis only debuted in WWE together just last year, but the couple have been together for a number of years and have worked in several different promotions. Mike Kanellis has been very vocal when discussing his past addiction to prescription drugs and he has also revealed how much his life has improved since joining WWE. Kanellis recently shared a story about when his wife Maria cried herself to sleep because the couple did not have any money at the time. Several years later, the couple will now be moving into a new house this Wednesday and they also have their first child due later on this year as well. With all of the good fortune that Kanellis has had lately, hopefully he'll be back on WWE television sooner rather than later.
