Bobby Lashley expected to face Omos at WWE WrestleMania 38

The two-time WWE Champion has been out of action with a shoulder injury suffered at the Royal Rumble.

Bobby Lashley vs. Omos is expected to take place at WWE WrestleMania 38. 

Fightful Select reported on Monday that Lashley was Omos' planned opponent for the show with Dave Meltzer noting on Wrestling Observer Radio that it will depend on if Lashley is cleared in time.

"Omos is doing the thing where he's asking for a singles match. He's going to have a singles match against somebody, but right now the guy is Lashley on the list. It could end up being somebody else if Lashley is not cleared. Apparently, that would say that Lashley is not undergoing shoulder surgery because if he was undergoing shoulder surgery or had surgery he wouldn't be at WrestleMania," Meltzer said.

Lashley suffered a shoulder injury when facing Brock Lesnar at January's Royal Rumble. An injury angle three weeks later at the Elimination Chamber saw him removed from the match before officially entering due to "concussion protocols." 

Omos has picked up victories on four straight episodes of WWE Raw. He defeated Commander Azeez and Apollo Crews in a handicap match on Monday's show.
