In a post on Instagram, new WWE champion Bobby Lashley described Monday as easily one of the greatest nights of his life.
Lashley wrote that when he made his return to WWE a few years ago, he told himself that he will be a WWE champion one day and was willing to fight all the way for it.
“Nothing in life is certain and sometimes you can’t control the outcome of things but there were a couple things I could control. I could control the work I put in and the attitude I had while doing it. My attitude has always been positive and my drive has always been second to none,” Lashley wrote.
He said that he cannot put into words what the WWE title means to him and he was still numb, yet full of emotion. “I have so many people I want to thank personally and for all of you who believed in me, thank you from the bottom of my heart,” he continued.
Reminding everyone that hard work and persistence does pay off, he said he’s not done yet and wants to fight anyone who goes after his title.
“Now ladies and gentlemen it’s time to get back on the grind so I can make this title run legendary! I’m in …..#TheHurtBusiness I am your new WWE Champion,” he concluded.
