Most Notable Return: Bobby Lashley

This week’s most notable return is Bobby Lashley, who returned to the WWE after eleven years away. He returned by attacking Elias. Although there were many returns this past Monday on Raw, Lashley stood out as the most shocking. Only time will tell what plans WWE have for Lashley but with the way he’s built, they definitely should have some big plans in store.
