Bobby Lashley was born in Junction City, Kansas on July 16, 1976. He is the son of Clara Lashley and a United States Army Drill Sergeant. He has three siblings: Cathy, Frances, and Jessica.
While his family relocated on a regular basis because of his father’s military service, Bobby attended several schools. But the one school that stands out the most is Fort Riley Middle School, where he developed a love for amateur wrestling. He graduated from Junction City High School and attended Missouri Valley College.
He was dating former WWE performer Kristal Marshall, but the couple ended their relationship in April 2010. The couple had three children: Kyra, Myles, and Naomi.
Bobby is an accomplished athlete. Because of his impressive success in collegiate wrestling, and victories in international competitions, he was noticed by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in in 2004. He was signed to a developmental contract and was sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). After just a year, Bobby was sent to the main roster and was given a monster push: an undefeated streak, the United States Championship, and the ECW Championship.
He competed several times for the WWE Championship, but it always eluded him. In February 2008, Bobby was released from his contract, which prompted him to compete in the independent scene, including with AAA and World League Wrestling (WLW).
In 2009, he was signed by Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling. He left a year later and returned to the independent circuit for four years. He then went back to TNA in 2014 and was given a monster push, winning all the championship titles. Bobby was released from his contract in January 2018.
Bobby would return to the WWE in April 2018 on the “Monday Night Raw” following WrestleMania XXXIV. He has been involved in various feuds and won the Intercontinental Championship.
In addition to professional wrestling, Bobby is a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) competitor. He has performed for a handful of MMA promotions, including Strikeforce, Titan Fighting Championship, Bellator, and Shark Fights.
He has branched out into other venues. He has found entrepreneurial success with health products, gyms, and MMA managing. Bobby has also tested acting, appearing in four movies and two television shows.
We estimate that Bobby Lashley’s net worth is $6 million (2018).
So how much is $6 million really?
$6 million can open up a couple of physical fitness centers. $6 million can also launch independent pro-wrestling promotions.
