WWE Raw video highlights: Bobby Lashley wins WWE Championship

A WWE Championship change headlined last night's episode of Raw.

Bobby Lashley defeated The Miz last night to win the WWE Championship for the first time in his career. The match was made a lumberjack match after a storyline where Miz tried to get out of facing Lashley throughout the night.

The title match was at first delayed due to The Miz claiming to have stomach cramps. When the match did first take place, Miz ran away and lost by countout. Shane McMahon then told Miz he would have to legitimately defend the WWE Championship against Lashley or Miz would be stripped of the title and it would be given to Lashley.

Lashley dominated Miz in the main event and then submitted him with The Hurt Lock. Following the match, Lashley celebrated with the WWE Championship and put Miz in The Hurt Lock again. Lashley also pointed to the WrestleMania sign during his celebration.

Lashley is the third Black wrestler to hold the WWE Championship, joining The Rock and Kofi Kingston.

After his title win, Lashley tweeted last night: "THE ALMIGHTY ERA IS HERE!!! #ANDNEW @WWE #WWERaw"
