Recently, Kenny Bolin recalled the day when Mark Henry and Bobby Lashley engaged in a shoot wrestling contest.
In 2005, Lashley participated in the Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) developmental programme of the WWE. During a planned real-world bout with Henry, Bolin, a former OVW on-screen manager, saw The All Mighty’s outstanding wrestling prowess.
Bolin claimed that Lashley triumphed against the former Olympic powerlifter on Rene Dupree’s Cafe de Rene podcast. He also compared the two men to Brock Lesnar, a 10-time WWE world champion:
“I did watch Bobby Lashley in a shoot fight with Mark Henry at OVW in the new building – the building you [Dupree] were in – and Bobby got the best of him,” Bolin said. “That’s the world’s f***ing strongest man. But Brock is meaner and, out of the three, I would fear Brock more because Bobby’s actually a sweet, nice guy, but you don’t wanna get on his s**t side.” [0:13 – 0:40]
Bobby Lashley’s WWE record against Brock Lesnar and Mark Henry
Beginning in January 2022, Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar’s WWE rivalry. At the 2022 Royal Rumble, they engaged in their first one-on-one contest, which Lashley won thanks to Roman Reigns’ interference.
At Crown Jewel 2022, The Beast Incarnate prevailed in a rematch to advance a plot that is anticipated to continue in 2023.
Lashley and Mark Henry only squared off once in a WWE singles contest. On the SmackDown programme from April 28, 2006, the World’s Strongest Man fell to the rookie by countout.
