WrestleMania 39 is less than a month away and Bobby Lashley's status for the show is suddenly uncertain. News broke on Monday that Bray Wyatt was dealing with "physical issues" (possibly an illness) that resulted in him missing WWE's live event at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. With rumors that Wyatt might also miss WrestleMania swirling online, Lashley took to Twitter and seemingly opened the door for a new opponent to fill in for Wyatt. He tweeted, "I've worked too hard to be denied. I will be ready to fight on the biggest stage of them all, #WrestleMania. I don't care who it is, somebody will feel the wrath of the All-Mighty."
But with limited time to build to a match, who could Lasley's opponent be? Some potential names have already been pitched on Twitter, as you can see in the list below. Tell us your pick down in the comments!

Run It Back
Lashley needs to be going full Jarrett mode backstage to slip his way back into working with Brock as we speak.— Ibou, of WrestlePurists (@BackupHangman) March 13, 2023
An absolute unit,we need Lashley as WWE champion again. I'd say you challenge Gunther for the IC title at the upcoming #Smackdown, making it Lashley Vs Gunther Vs Drew Vs Sheamus fatal 4 way at WrestleMania. Or..... https://t.co/PA9LIZNHT0— Jay (@WrestlingISUsz) March 14, 2023

Maybe Still Bray?
Dave on WOR on Bray: "From what I understand the match (Bray/Lashley) is still on for Mania and he should be back very soon. That's pretty much all I can say and there is something to it but I'm not at liberty to discuss it." Adds that he's been told it's not a creative issue.— Trevor Dame (@TrevorDame) March 14, 2023
