The name suggested for Bobby Lashley to face on October 3 in Denver, CO is Ron Waterman. Waterman, who is almost 44 and is a former pro wrestler who worked for New Japan, WWE and various other companies. According to FightLine.com, Waterman holds a 16-6-2 overall MMA record, with his last win on November 29, 2008 via submission. TNA will likely keep Lashley out of full capacity the ring over the next two months or so or limit his time as much as possible to prevent injury.
