The latest chapter of the Rusev-Lana-Bobby Lashley angle involved law enforcement arresting Bobby Lashley and Lana.

Although it’s ridiculous to think that the man violating the restraining order would be let go while Lashley and Lana would get arrested, the main man behind-the-scenes loved how everything went down. In fact, he wants this angle to continue beyond the TLC pay-per-view.

I was told that Vince McMahon loved how everything played out on Raw this week. The arrest angle was something that was approved days ago and there were little changes made to that part of the script.


“Vince loves everything about this story,” said a WWE source. “The numbers are above average for these segments so they will do them until people stop caring.”

I was told that McMahon sees this storyline the way people would look over to see a car wreck. The storyline might make you cringe but you will keep watching…at least that is how McMahon feels. He also looks at the numbers for these segments and feels that Lana is generating real heel heat and not “go away” heat. Rusev has been getting praise backstage for the work he’s been doing.

Although the match has not been officially announced, Lashley vs. Rusev is scheduled for the TLC pay-per-view and I’m told this angle will continue after that show. The last I heard on Rusev is that he had not signed a contract but as last week, the feeling was that Rusev was likely going to sign a new deal. As previously noted, the plan is for Rusev to look good at the end of this storyline. People in WWE creative have been doing everything to keep the first TV match between Rusev and Lashley until the pay-per-view. At house shows, they’ve been doing DQ finishes and they swerved fans by not actually doing a match at Starrcade.

I dont really care about this angle in particular.. But even if i did, i wouldnt do this angle with these 3 who have been quite poor. What worked with Edge, Matt and Lita for example would not work with these 3. Very poor acting. Rusev especially has been poor in this. I dont have high expectations of the other two so they are exempted

Of course he loved it, this story line had Vince written all over it from the beginning.

I mean are we really surprised Vince loves this? Cause I mean he did this with this couple before with Ziggler. I think he wants to stretch it out, cause he really wants to fuck up their relationship. He still doesn't see how Rusev can get a girl like Lana. But they need to know when to drop this shit cause it's been getting hated by the fans, you continue to stretch something out some kinda of backlash might happen.

Its the highest rated shit on youtube, so extending it is not that much of a stretch for Vince..It had more views than the most of the ones featuring the so called FOTC's Seth and Roman and Charlotte and Becky by a significant margin.

I keep hearing that oh it's getting crazy views on youtube, but I also hear that the likes to dislikes are crazy on those videos. But some of the comments probably are of Lana off my tv.(again how is this not go away heat?)

Like how Vince bulldozed his way with Roman "They normally boo who they cheer and cheer who they boo" Reigns and John "Clear and Loud Mixed reaction" Cena, I wouldnt be surprised if Vince would be like 10 Like 10000 dislikes, its 10010 Reactions damn it...

It's so weird, because most of us (including myself) hate it.

Yet, it's getting over apparently, and the crowds seem to care quite a bit. Rusev got a huge pop coming out to attack Lashley, and the arrests got a pop too. I don't know, but if it works I guess keep going with it.

It's kind of the only thing RAW has going for it right now.

Anything else is just Seth Rollins derailing his own career while WWE pulls a slow-burn on his heel turn. I mean, at this point just stick AOP with him and turn him heel. It's boring TV.
