As noted last night, the man who played the wedding officiant/pastor for Lana and Bobby Lashley was tacked as he was making his way to the ring for his Raw segment.
Rick Malone, the actor who was hired for the role, spoke about what happened on his Facebook account. He said the following:
“This is what happened tonight at WWE/RAW: I needed to get into the ring in order to consummate the “Bobby Lashley and Lana Wedding” (which was totally disrupted last Monday night in Hartford CT), but security prevented me, so I had no other choice but to dive into the ring headfirst. Security was not pleased! But the married couple was very happy! ❤️”
The incident was not a mistake by WWE security. In fact, as reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet, this was planned ahead of time. It’s not clear why WWE did this but if they wanted to get some buzz on mainstream sites then they achieved that goal because the story gained traction in several places, including TMZ.
For those of you that missed it, here is the video of the officiant being tackled by security.
