My Top 3 Reasons Why Lashley is Now Seemingly Unstoppable.
Lashley Holding All Three Singles Championships at once.
A Truly Awesome sight to behold.
Never in my life have I ever dreamed of taking a look at the spectacle that is Lashley. He's human Kryptonite. He's the Unstoppable Juggernaut of Force. He's "The Destroyer!" He's TNA's most dominant wrestler. He's also the most dominant TNA wrestler since Kurt Angle, when he held 5 championships at once in 2007. In this case however, he was holding all three singes championships. He defeated "The Cowboy" James Storm in what was an awesome match, where Lashley got superkicked by Storm 3 times, including two Last Call superkicks in a row and Lashley still kicked out. I was cheering for Lashley the whole way through, even though he was more of a heel than a tweener.
He went on, and then James Storm hit the Codebreaker, and the momentum from that move sent Lashley into the ring ropes opposite James Storm and he suddenly speared Storm for the final time and won the match, making him the most dominant TNA wrestler in history. On a night where Damien Sandow (Aron Rex) made his TNA debut, Jeff Hardy (Brother Nero) embraced his broken self, and Gail Kim defended her honor yet again, it was Lashley who outshone them all with his talent and dominance. He even went as far as to say that in November, he's got a MMA fight with Fedor? HELL YEAH!!! Bring on four titles to your resume and you'll be as dominant as Brock Lesnar, only you'll be more dominant than Brock Lesnar.
Lashley wants to fight Fedor!!!
TNA's booking with him.
In wrestling, it doesn't matter if your'e a champion or not. It's the way that you're booked. In 2016, Lashley found his groove when he defeated Kurt Angle, and then momentarily broke character, but then beat Kurt Angle down. If you've read my other article on Why Lashley should make a great multiple champion, you'll probably get the idea. In WWE, Faces are booked as generic babyfaces, while Heels are treated like pus---- The only two people from WWE I can't stand being pushed to the moon are John Cena and Roman Reigns. Then there's the New Day, with their rainbow unicorns sticking up on top of their heads. Let's get back to Lashley. He was booked strong, but not so strong that they pushed him down your throat. They pushed him in a gradual fashion, and that's what they did.
Slammiversary 2016 was a pay-per-view that I'm never going to forget. I've seen the videos from that event and that match was awesome. In the end, Lashley won by knockout, and he became a 3-time TNA World Heavyweight Champion. In the next 2 months of tapings, he dominated against opponents like EC3 and Drew Galloway. Then, He fought against Eddie Edwards in a title vs title opportunity twice, once on Destination X and the other in 6 Sides of Steel, and Lashley won the X Division Championship. Then when James Storm won the king of the mountain Championship, Lashley challenged him to a titles vs title opportunity, and, as mentioned above, won the King of the mountain championship from James Storm, making him a Triple Champion.
TNA Could Decide to Unify one of the Championship Belts.
With 3 major titles, a title unification is possible, given the right amount of money and the right amount of time. Wrestling Companies unify belts all the time. WWE Did it to the WWE Championship, which was held by Randy Orton at the time, and the World Heavyweight Championship, which was held by John Cena at the time in TLC 2013. It would be cumbersome to hold all three major titles when you could hold two at the same time and make it much easier on yourself. WWE Named the new combined championship the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in 2013.
Since then, Daniel Bryan and John Cena have held the championship before Brock Lesnar had that championship. The Title's old design was changed around August 2014 by the Authority (Triple H and Stephanie McMahon). TNA has the right to unify one of the championships with the other, as seen by this Wikipedia article. Please don't read before August 18. WWE also did this with the European and the Intercontinental Championships back in 2001, when it was the WWF. WWE also did this with the WWE Tag Team Championships and the World Tag Team Championships in 2009 and 2010.

Two of TNA's Championships
Lashley could have his championships vacated, but he'll still have his dominance.
Even though Lashley appears to get two championships, in reality, he'll only get 1 due to his very dominating nature. He'll still get the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, but the X Division Championship will be vacated and be put under a stipulation match. Who'll win. I don't know, but What I do know is that after Lashley had those three titles, Aron Rex (Damien Sandow) was watching him, and it looked to me that Aron wanted the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. If you've read my article on why Aron Rex Could Have so Much Potential in TNA, then you'll see what I'm talking about. Apparently, they have a TNA Grand Championship.
According to Wikipedia's List of Current TNA Champions, Lashley only has the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. This could very well change. He's very dominant in the ring, and is a supertanker of a champion, with a weight of 272 pounds. This article was as of August 13, and impact for September 1 happened, and we all know that TNA doesn't record shows live. It showed live on August 11, and I was expecting the show to be good, but not to the level of excitement that It got. Lashley's a very strong champion, and I think he will make a very strong champion over the next 2 months of impact tapings until Bound for Glory, where he'll be defeated by either EC3 or Drew Galloway.
Basically, I'm hoping for a triple threat match between the three, just to prove who is the best of them all. I really hope Galloway wins, but I wouldn't mind if EC3 also won or Lashley retains his TNA World Heavyweight Championship. That would make him the prime target for Aron Rex, who will beat a champion like Lashley, but not Lashley in the near future. As I said in my earlier article on why Aron Rex Has potential on Impact, it's going to take Aron some time to get used to the Impact food chain, and be ready for when he takes the TNA World Heavyweight Championship from someone other than Lashley.
I think my conclusion is that Lashley is the most dominant force in TNA right now. He's Human Kryptonite. He's the Unstoppable Juggernaut of Force, and he's also got 3 golds around his waist (for the time being), I have not read the spoilers for the August 18, 25 and September 1, 2016 editions of impact wrestling enough to tell what has been happening with any of the championships. I only know that Lashley vacated the X Division Title for some reason, and that reason is found in here. Why would Lashley want to unify the X Division Championship with the World Heavyweight Championship? It's a mystery. The fact of the matter is that Lashley will always be dominating even if he only has one championship around him.
Update On Lashley October 3, 2016.
Lashley retained his TNA World Heavyweight Championship in a match for the ages as he took on EC3 at Bound For Glory. Lashley hit a spear before the match even began, then EC3 said "START THE F&^%*&^ MATCH!!!! As the match progressed, the action got more intense. Then, Lashley speared EC3 3 more times before finally spearing him in midair and pinning EC3 to win the match, becoming only the second person in history to pin EC3 in singles competition (the only other one being Mike Bennet). Let me tell you this, I want Lashley to feud with Moose, the second most dominant force today.
If you don't know Moose, just look at his football record in the Atlanta Falcons section, or his time in ROH (Ring of Honor). Since Aaron rex is the inaugural TNA Grand Champion, I want Moose to hold the championship near the end of this week's tapings. We could be seeing a babyface champion on our hands by the end of November or December, just weeks after Dixie Carter makes her decision on whether to sell the company to Billy Corgan (which would be like Hillary Clinton for TNA), or to Vince F------ McMahon (which would be like Donald Trump for TNA, if you're not familiar with politics).

On the October 6 edition of Impact Wrestling, Eddie Edwards shocked the TNA Universe when he pinned Lashley in a TNA World Heavyweight Championship match when he hit his finishing move, The Boston Knee Party, from out of nowhere. THIS HAS MAJOR IMPLICATIONS ON THE TNA HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP SCENE!!!! Eddie Edwards was chasing that championship for months.
That chase started 1 week before Destination X, when Lashley, the Heavyweight Champion at the time, offered a title VS title match. The following week, they had a match, but the match ended in a no contest when Mike Bennett interfered and brought out Moose from ROH. Angry and furious about what just happened, Dixie Carter, who was president at the time, said that the Title VS Title Match will happen inside 6 sides of steel.
9 days later, on the Thursday July 21, 2016 edition of impact Wrestling, Eddie Edwards was about to win with the Boston Knee Party TWICE, but Lashley kicked out BOTH TIMES. Eddie was about to go high risk, but Lashley cut him off, and then then got speared TWICE by Lashley to retain his TNA World Heavyweight Championship and get the X Division Championship. The link to Lashley's Quest to Become Multiple Champion can be found here. Once he held all three titles, he made a controversial decision. He wanted to unify the X and King of the Mountain Championships with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, and make the other two championships obsolete, but new president Billy Corgan and Dixie Carter nullified that decision and Lashley left.
A new X division Champion was crowned on September 1 when DJ Z won the title THen Corgan created the Impact Grand Championship later in September, and a new Grand Champion was crowned when Aron Rex won against Eddie Edwards in a split decision match. When I heard that Eddie Edwards became TNA World Heavyweight Champion the day after October 6 (For unknown reasons, the power went out at 8:44 PM, during the height of Hurricane Matthew) I was shocked.
Now that I know that Eddie Edwards is TNA World Heavyweight Champion, he'll be having a grand old time being champion. Until a heel or face champion can defeat Eddie Edwards to get the Heavyweight Championship (Hopefully it's NOT Mike Bennett and hopefully it's either Lashley, Moose, Eli Drake (who won Bound for Gold), EC3, or Cody (f.k.a Stardust AND f.k.a Cody Rhodes) or Aron Rex once Drew Galloway, Mike Bennett, Andrew Everrett or Trevor Lee take the Grand Championship title off his waist). Now that Eddie Edwards is TNA World Heavyweight Champion, he'll be taken a lot more seriously.

Eddie Edwards Wins the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Update 2017 Edition.
Early in January, Lashley challenged Eddie Edwards to a 30-minute Ironman match. He accepted it. In that Ironman match, Lashley dominated over Eddie, but Eddie, at the final 50 seconds of the match, put him in the guillotine submission maneuver. For over 50 seconds, Lashely was defiant and didn't submit, therefore, winning the match and the championship in the process, ushering in "The 4th reincarnation of the Lashley Era (his 4th title reign)." A few weeks later, Eddie Edwards called him Triple B, or B**** Boy Bobby, and Lashley gave him a title shot, but it would be Eddie's last title shot. On the February 9 episode of Impact, Eddie had Lashley beat when fellow wolf member Davey Richards betrayed him. Not only that, but Davey Richard's real-life wife, Angelina Love, who was a former member of The Beautiful People and six-time Knockouts champion, slapped Eddie Edwards's real-life wife, Alicia, in the face. Then, Davey and Angelina proceeded to do some heinous things to them, including Angelina pulling Alicia's hair, and Davey choking Eddie with a belt. This set up a potential rivalry that will be more bitter than any rivalry seen in TNA, but Davey Richards and Davey Richards both said on twitter that 2017 will be their final year of wrestling. I hope they deliver on their bitter rivalry, because they are going to shatter their friendship apart this year. I imagine that Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards are great friends off the ring, and have planned this right from the start.
