Before arriving on Raw, Bobby Lashley's dramatic arrival in ECW shook the Land of the Extreme at its foundation, as he speared his way through the dominant Big Show to sign the contract to be the final participant in the Extreme Elimination Chamber.

Lashley was victorious in the Battle of the Billionaires at WrestleMania 23 against McMahon's representative Umaga, and was chiefly responsible for the evil Chairman being shaved bald. But Lashley's fearlessness may have been his undoing. Mr. McMahon took the ECW World Championship away from him at Backlash in a 3-on-1 Handicap Match that also included his son Shane and the Samoan Bulldozer.
For weeks, the Chairman humiliated and demoralized Lashley as he attempted to regain his cherished title. Lashley finally got revenge when he defeated Mr. McMahon in a Street Fight at One Night Stand and regained the ECW World Title, despite interference from Umaga and Shane McMahon.
Now, Bobby Lashley brings his dominant style and power to Raw. Whether he holds a title or not, our fans know that Bobby Lashley always has the heart of a champion.
