To be honest, I didn't notice it at first. Lashley would not have been my first choice as champion but at least is definitely better tan EY or MVP.































Maybe this is the beginning of a feud with Samoa Joe leading to Bound for Glory.

It is Awesome to see that the Brother Bobby Lashley is TNA champ.TNA knows that Lashley is good talent,unlike WWE who tries to keep the black man down.

R-truth is technically tna first world heavyweight champion. Won the title twice but like I said, technically since it was the nwa champion but yeah lashley would be the first black tna world champion. Good for him. I think it was overdue for him when he was in wwe. I still think they could have put the title on someone, only because I don't like how former wwe superstar are instantly pushed. He still deserve it tho.

As stated by two other user, Technically R-Truth was the 1st















But then in WWE Chris Jericho was the 1st WWE Champ but they want you to think Orton was































The bigger Question is how long will he hold it I say a Week

Some people criticise them for not having a black world champion so they booked Lashley to make themselves not look racist, plain and simple

Ron Killings (R-Truth) was their first black world champion on August 7, 2002. Okay, technically he was the NWA World Heavyweight Champion, but the title was only defended in TNA. So it was really the TNA Championship.
