As we noted earlier, Rusev’s latest tweet suggests that maybe he is not too bothered by his storyline with Lana and Bobby Lashley.
The fans in Manchester, England were overwhelmingly negative on the latest chapter in the storyline that was taped for this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw and the ratings don’t suggest that the angle is helping. However, they are getting stronger YouTube numbers, even though WWE doesn’t make a ton of money with YouTube.
AEW star Jake Hager offered a bit of advice for his friend Rusev. On Twitter, he suggested for Rusev to “Leave her and that assh*le company . #ImWithAEW”
I don’t think Rusev and Lana are having real-life marital issues so I don’t think he plans on leaving her but the idea of Rusev leaving WWE seems possible since Ryback recently said on his podcast that his friend Rusev is in contract negotiations. Ryback believes his current storyline is being done to humiliate his friend.
Many fans feel the same way but others point to the fact that Rusev and Lana are getting more TV time. We’ll see how this all plays out when the storyline concludes.
