Lio Rush and Bobby Lashley are no longer a duo on TV, but “The All Mighty” says he’s offered to help his former hype man down in NXT now that he’s Cruiserweight champ.
Lashley was asked about Lio winning the NXT Cruiserweight title during an interview with Uproxx.
“I already gave him a call and hit him up and told him if he needs any help keeping that title, I’m a phone call away man. I think we got to do something,” the former Intercontinental champ stated before noting that they’d be missing the boat if Lio holds the title and he doesn’t make an appearance.
“Hopefully I can get in there and maybe throw around some little guys and help him retain that title, because he helped me for an entire year, so I owe him one,” he added.
In case you missed it, Lio Rush captured the NXT Cruiserweight Championship when he defeated Drew Gulak on last week’s edition of NXT on USA Network.
Bobby Lashley also touched on his current program involving Lana and Rusev during the interview, saying it adds an element of chaos to the show. “It’s going to be great,” he said of the storyline. “I told [WWE Creative], I said, ‘You know what? There’s people that won’t and there’s people that will, and f*ck, I’m all the way will.’ I think it’s going to be fun. I’m ready to do anything. I feel like I’m 20 years old, man.”
