Franklin Roberto "Bobby" Lashley (born July 16, 1976) is an American professional wrestler and former mixed martial artist. He is signed to WWE, where he performs on the Raw brand as a member of The Hurt Business and is the current WWE United States Champion in his second reign.During Lashley's first tenure with WWE from 2005 to 2008, he became a one-time United States Champion and two-time ECW World Champion. He is also known for his work in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), where he was a four-time TNA/Impact World Heavyweight Champion, a one-time X Division Champion, and the final King of the Mountain Champion. After returning to WWE in 2018, he became a two-time Intercontinental Champion and won his second United States Championship. He has headlined multiple pay-per view events for WWE and TNA, including the 2016 edition of the latter's flagship event, Bound for Glory.
Lashley's first daughter, Kyra, was born in 2005. He later dated former WWE wrestler Kristal Marshall, with whom he had a son named Myles in July 2008 and a daughter named Naomi in 2011.Lashley has been involved in several business ventures. In 2007, he opened up a health smoothie shop. In July 2009, he announced the launch of the Lashley Network of websites, comprising his official gym, nutrition store, and social media pages. In a press release for the launch, he stated that he was aiming to keep his reputation and name in the public eye so he could reach his goal of being the top MMA fighter.
Franklin Roberto Lashley was born in Junction City, Kansas, on July 16, 1976, the son of a U.S. Army drill sergeant. He has three older sisters, one of whom is still on active service in the U.S. Air Force as of 2015. The family occasionally moved from one military base to another during his childhood. While his father was stationed at Fort Riley in Kansas, Lashley attended Fort Riley Middle School, where he was introduced to amateur wrestling in seventh grade as an off-season alternative to football. He later graduated from Junction City High School, where he continued to wrestle. He attended Missouri Valley College, where he was the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) National Wrestling Champion in the 177 lbs category in 1996, 1997, and 1998, and graduated in 1999 with a bachelor's degree in human-service agency management and recreation administration. He followed his father into the army after college, and continued to compete in amateur wrestling in the army's World Class Athlete Program. During three years in the army, he won a gold and silver medal in the International Military Sports Council senior freestyle wrestling event. In 2003, while living and training in Colorado Springs with the goal of qualifying for Team USA to wrestle at the 2004 Olympic Games, Lashley witnessed a bank robbery and was forced to dive for cover to avoid gunfire; this resulted in a knee injury that required surgery, ending his amateur career.
