In a Tables Match, Bobby Lashley and Rusev squared off in their first TV match at the WWE TLC pay-per-view. The rules of the match were that the winner would be declared after he put his opponent through a table. Rusev had to deal with interference from ex-wife Lana.
Late in the match, Rusev took several kendo stick shots to the back as he was pleading with Lana, apparently because he wanted her to take him back or something. Back in the ring, Rusev fought back but Lana jumped on his back and that was enough to allow Lashley to put Rusev through a table in the ring corner and win the match.
