When it can't get any more stupid Lana calls Rusev a sex addict and explains why, which obviously was going to get him a Rock pop LOL

She brought up not wanting kids. This was used on Total Divas ages ago and got played out. We don't need it again.

Rusev cannot be a fan of this storyline. E have to find a way to reunite them so it can be forgotten.

I quite enjoyed the segment on Raw this week, yes the dialogue was silly and Rusev and Lana did seem to be struggling to take it seriously.
The thing is though its actually quite believable that Lana was a career obsessed gold digger and Rusev was wanting to start a family, so while many are calling this whole storyline ridiculous its actually not that far fetched.

I do still feel like Rusev and Lana could be getting punished with this angle though, I hope I'm wrong and both have happily consented to it.
I enjoyed seeing Rusev finally snap and shove his wedding ring down Lashley's throat during the brawl.

This storyline will not and is not working in the PG era. Attitude ear , maybe. For me , WWE may need a reboot totally. It’s been many month since I’ve been on the forum. WWE has gotten worse by the week. Thank goodness for AEW. I remember Vince saying once , the audience is now to smart to fall for gimmicks , yet we have The Fiend. They have way to many superstars and don’t know what or how to manage all of them. Most are average at best. I can’t admit , I may have been wrong about Becky , but even now she’s gotten stale but the Lana , Lashley story is beyond ridiculous. How about trying a wrestling show ? Heck it might just work !!

It was a disaster from day 1 however what it has done is help Rusev get more over so at least it has achieved something

More car crash tv this week, for a real husband and wife Rusev and Lana do not have great chemistry on screen, Lana seems too over the top with her screaming and shouting and Rusev is too calm appearing to not care about what is happening around him.

The positives are its providing a talking point at least and puts both Rusev and Lashley into high profile positions as this is currently the top feud on Raw with Lesnar on another hiatus. Also Rusev is still really over with lots of loud Rusev Day chants.

The only real pluses I could get from the segment was Lana looking hotter than she has for ages and divorce expert Jerry Lawler taking charge, which had to be a insider joke.

Rusev came out in a duck t shirt. He didn't even make the effort to wear his own merchandise.

The whole restraining order stuff we've seen is dumb. E wouldn't allow Lana to get one against Rusev to stop him coming to work. Basically Lana somehow had the power over E so they had to pay Rusev for not turning up to work.

When they cut the soap opera bullshit the brawl segments have actually been pretty good, but the dumb divorce stuff has been awful, not helped by the fact that neither Rusev or Lashley are particularly good talkers. 

Lana has done well with her performances and has got herself over as a hated heel so she will be a good heater for Lashley or whichever heel talent she is associated with.

The acting of Lana was worse than ever before with her screeching and jumping up and down.

When Lashley told her nobody tells him what to do, it was clear what he was going to do next, despite a fair part of the audience cheering it as if a face turn was on it's way.

The only sensible way to end it all would be for it to come out that all three were in it together to get more camera time and exposure and that the fans were all dumb to fall for it.

I actually didn't mind the segment, it was done in a way that it was supposed to be obvious that Lashley and Lana were only interested in the fame and money that being a ''power couple'' brings. This could work for Lashley as Lana will get him heat but Lashley needs to be booked to get it done in the ring. I still think Lashley should be booked as he was in TNA as a dominant Lesnar type destroyer, MVP was also a excellent mouth-piece for him. 

I actually quite like your idea of it coming out that it was all a ruse to get more exposure money and fame and that Rusev was in on it. I think Rusev is a horrible babyface and would be far better switching back to his Bulgarian brute heel character.
