Bobby Lashley was a guest on Stone Cold Steve Austin's Broken Skull Sessions on the WWE Network, and discussed what it was like behind the scenes at the ECW December to Dismember event.
“I was so clueless to wrestling. I never looked at the dirt sheets, anything. I didn’t know anything. I’m out there just living in the moment. So when I got put into this, later on I realized how much hate, how much stuff was going on. I never knew. This is like years afterward I started reading this stuff and it was like Heyman made a comment on it somebody else did, and I was like, ‘Wow, I didn’t know all of this stuff was going on in the background.’ I thought it was just, me going out there and having fun. A lot of things in the wrestling business, I was just clueless to it.”
Lashley also responded to the original plans to have CM Punk win the ECW Championship during the Extreme Elimination Chamber and how the plans were scrapped last minute.
“I think that I read that I was not supposed to win it. They wanted Punk to get the push at this time. I don’t know what it was. It was chaos that day. There was a lot going on.”
This event was not very well received at the time, and led to Paul Heyman leaving WWE until returning to be Brock Lesnar's advocate in 2012.
