Podcast: Bobby Lashley and Eli Drake of Impact Wrestling

By Josh Lemoine on November 3, 2017

This week we’re talking with Bobby Lashley and Eli Drake, two stars of Impact Wrestling. Impact is bringing their pay-per-view event Bound For Glory to Ottawa’s Aberdeen Pavilion on November 5th.

Eli Drake is Impact Wrestling’s current Global Champion, and Bobby Lashley is a veteran MMA fighter, and has also fought in WWE. He’s perhaps most well-known for his participation in WrestleMania 23, where he and Donald Trump shaved Vince McMahon’s head.

…Eeeeyup.

We ask about that, as well as finding out how they each got into wrestling, what the life of a wrestler is like, and how much of any match is rehearsed.

Bonus! We also get them to try out some proper Shakespearean smack-talk (spoiler: Drake nails it).

This interview originally aired on the Apt613 show on CHUO 89.1fm on October 31st, 2017.
