The first kissing was lame and looked shit. When they went for it a second time with ass grabbing and tongues, my God that's how you have a OMG moment.

I didn't think E would go down the interacial BBC storyline route, but Lana looked to be enjoying her role LOL

I'm not sure why Rusev though was booked like a stupid idiot watching his wife acting that way and doing nothing about it.

I'm sensing that Heyman likes this kind of angle what with Maria and Mike Kanellis and now this storyline.

On one hand I could see why they would pair Lashley with Lana, it puts heat on him and Lashley is a really crummy promo so Lana can carry the verbal work for him.
I did find the whole thing a little cringey although credit where its due Lashley and Lana seemed to be having a good time out there and were convincing, people of course will now start assuming this is punishment for Rusev who is said to be stalling on a new contract and maybe exiting WWE at the end of his deal, plus he recently asked for time off which tends to be frowned upon.


I'm interested to see where this angle goes and if it means a high profile feud and push for both Lashley and Rusev, two talents who I really like, then I'm all for it. I think these two can put together some really good hard hitting power style matches as well.

This is an absolutely bollocks angle

They did the exact same sort of Angle with Ziggler and Lana - albeit it not as out there as what that kiss was, i mean lashley had himself some hot ass right there.

Rusev should be booked in meaningful feuds instead of going from pointless feud to pointless feud

It was the worst segment they have done so far and not what we need to see on a wrestling show.

Who cares if Lana is having her feet and calfs rubbed? At least make it more mature and get Lashley massaging her thighs or at least back and shoulders.

Where was Rusev? He should have been booked to have know where Lana and Bobby were so we could have finally seen some physicality between the two men.

Agreed. The past two weeks were segments that served a purpose to antagonise Rusev, and while its safe to say this kind of soap opera type stuff wont appeal to everyone I thought the talent involved all did a good job.

But this week the segment served no purpose, why would any wrestling fans want to see Lana getting a massage from Lashley?? It was just dumb and cringey. Seemed the segment existed only for Lana and the first masseuse before Lashley arrived to make sexual innuendos and not even ones that were particularly funny.

Who'd have thought the favourite restaurant of Lana will have been in Cleveland of all places.

How can she call it her favourite if she claims she's never been because Rusev would never take her?

There has to be more to the storyline. If it's only because Rusev sends money he makes back home to his family in Bulgaria that's not a reason for her to hate her husband.

The in-ring interview with Lawler and Rusev came across a bit awkward in its execution, both men appeared a bit uncomfortable with the storyline and what they were having to say. It was good to see a different more babyface side of Rusev but I didn't like how he appeared to not care that his wife was cheating on him right before his eyes and said he hoped they could pass through this, that is not something you want a babyface talent saying, he should be wanting to tear both of them apart and should be showing anger not indifference.

The storyline is that Lana is a gold digger wanting the finer things in life while Rusev was cautious with his money sending much of it home to his poor family in Bulgaria, so Lana has now run into the arms of Lashley who gives her everything she wants.

This was a much better segment than the horrible massage nonsense last week, I was glad that Rusev finally snapped and stormed into the restaurant to attack Lashley, that is the kind of stuff fans want to see.

I'll agree there has to be more of a reason behind Lana's cheating for this angle to make sense, even though as #Heel said this isn't the first time Alexander and Lana have had issues, nor is it even the second (remember when Rusev blamed Lana for agreeing to a U.S. Title defense against John Cena, which Rusev lost.) So the two have certainly had both professional and relationship issues before. 

Lana's most unforgivable act is that she got in bed with Lashley on Rusev Day. Tongue

But in any case I do and always have liked Rusev in the ring so I hope at least this feud produces some good hard hitting matches. Rusev has lost a lot of weight by the way and could better match Lashley's agility these days.

Rusev has got himself into fantastic shape and I wonder if this has prompted WWE to give him a push? He needs to lose the pornstar moustache though not a good look.

Something seems strange about this angle, the fact Rusev seemed so indifferent to his wife cheating and said he was loyal to her still, makes me wonder if this is all part of some elaborate angle that will see Rusev form a alliance with Lashley and Lana.
I actually liked the idea of a Rusev/Lana babyface couple and the fans liked them too which again makes it seem strange that WWE have gone in this direction.

There are some theories on this, it's been said that Rusev and Lana were not happy with their booking in WWE and they requested time off earlier this year, could this storyline be a punishment? Stranger things have happened in WWE.
The other theory is Vince felt Rusev needed to be a solo act to move up the card and Lashley needed a mouth-piece so it gave him Lana to do the promo work while at the same time putting heat on Lashley for stealing Rusev's wife.

I hate everything about this storyline.

Rusev does look in great shape though and is getting TV time which i suppose is a positive.
