Fans could compile a lengthy list of everyone who is currently underutilized in WWE and it's safe to say Bobby Lashley wouldn't be near the top for most people, even though he should be.
Lashley's last run in WWE from 2005 through 2007 was cut short for a variety of reasons and didn't fully encompass everything he was capable of. Anyone who watched Lashley in IMPACT is well aware of how exceptional he can be when handled properly, especially as a heel.
After the decorated stint he had there, fans had hope that he could bring that same style to WWE after over a decade away. He received a monster reaction from the fans in attendance when he shockingly resurfaced on Raw the night after WrestleMania 34, though it didn't take long for the company to squander any momentum he had.
It's been a roller coaster ride of a run for Lashley in WWE since then that has been filled with more downs than ups. On the bright side, he isn't damaged goods quite yet, though his recent rivalry didn't do a ton to get him back on track.
If not, it will be the latest instance where WWE has dropped the ball with Bobby Lashley over the past year.
