WWE’s Bobby Lashley reveals he’s been offered weirder things and roles in Mortal Kombat

Right now, Bobby Lashley has the WWE United States Championship and his ongoing feud with Brock Lesnar on his mind, but when he’s not in the ring, the All Mighty has been known to take on a few movie roles. In the past, Lashley starred in movies like The Way of War and Blood Out, which took place between the star’s runs in WWE. As it turns out, Lashley could have been part of two major franchises as well, as per a new interview with Sidewalk entertainmentLashley revealed that he had been offered roles in the Mortal Kombat franchise and Stranger Things, but he ultimately decided that acting wasn’t a priority for him at the time.

“I’ve done a handful of movies when I’ve been battling for a while in between, from my first run in WWE to my second run. I’ve done about four or five (movies). Small, small parts. They had such a big bad villain to get in there, and I played that part. Of course I got killed every time,” Lashley said.

“I was offered things afterwards. I was offered Mortal Kombat. There were Stranger Things. There were a lot of different ones that were offered to me. At the time I wasn’t really focused on doing that. I was fighting at the time, I was trying to bounce back coming into professional wrestling. The acting part was something that I was interested in, but I don’t think it was the right timing. When I came back to WWE, I started taking more acting classes, working on that, and now I’m in more for open,” Lashley said.

Lashley did reveal that he had a few projects in the works, and would see himself pursuing more in that realm as his wrestling career comes to an end. “We’ve got a couple of different projects in the pipeline right now. I kind of see myself moving into a bigger role and doing some more movies as I slow down in professional wrestling,” Lashley said.

That doesn’t seem to be happening any time soon though, and Lashley will next be in the ring as part of Survivor Series: War Games, where he takes on Seth Rollins and Austin Theory in a triple threat match for the United States Championship. .
