In light of Bobby Lashley’s recent arrival in TNA Wrestling, it’s interesting to note that a fellow wrestler in the organization once accused him of being on performance-enhancing drugs.
Coming off the heels and ramifications from the Chris Benoit double murder and suicide, Wade Keller of the Pro Wrestling Torch conducted an interview with Kevin Nash in June of 2007 (Pro Wrestling Torch newsletter #997/998, cover dated November 10-17, 2007) to discuss drugs in professional wrestling.
During the interview, Nash is asked if he believes John Cena and Bobby Lashley are on any performance-enhancing drugs. Nash feels Cena is completely clean, but he can’t honestly say the same about Lashley.
“I don’t think Cena’s on anything. I really don’t, because I’ve seen Cena when he came in and he was the Prototype, and he was a big jacked up dude. I think Cena is an absolutely physically gifted guy.
“I don’t know anything about Lashley. Lashley just looks very synthetic to me. That’s just my opinion and I could be completely wrong, and if I am, I apologize to him and his family. No, I don’t apologize to him and his family. God bless him! (laughs). If he’s clean, Jesus man, you’re absolutely phenomenal, a physical specimen. But you look at him. Lashley, it would be hard to believe a guy with that muscle structure is clean.”
