Bobby Lashley may be done with professional wrestling once and for all. On Monday’s TNA Impact broadcast on Spike TV, Lashley walked into the ring with his wife Kristal to deliver a message to Hulk Hogan and the audience.

He let his wife do the talking. To summarize her message, she basically said MMA was a legitimate sport and professional wrestling was for “in-bred toothless hillbillies”.

She said her husband was a star in MMA and in wrestling and no one can match his strength. She also said her husband wants out of his TNA contract and told the audience, “Go ahead, take a good look at Bobby because this is the last time you may see him. Like I said, we’ve got better things to do.”
