According to a report by The Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online, sources in Bobby Lashley’s camp are stating that he has not signed a contract with TNA and simply made an appearance at last night’s Lockdown PPV to get both sides acquainted with each other.
If Lashley does end up signing with TNA then were told his goal is to do both pro wrestling on a limited basis and continue MMA. This would be an option with TNA’s lighter schedule only taping a few days per month and giving him enough time to train MMA.
Lashley, who is 2-0 in his MMA career, is currently negotiating a deal with Strikeforce and is looking over a contract for a June 27 fight against Japanese legend Bob Sapp to be held in Biloxi, Mississippi for Prize Fight Promotions at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum. It is possible Lashley could be signing the contract for that fight as early as today, while Sapp confirmed he has reviewed the contract and was hoping to be there.
Update (6:15 p.m. ET): PWInsider is now reporting that Lashley has signed a “short term” agreement with TNA.
