Reason Why WWE Created Rusev-Lana-Lashley Love Triangle Storyline
WWE has surely created some of the adultery storylines in the recent past. But none has been this much controversial with the ongoing Rusev/Lana/Lashley Love triangle. After all, this is a drama unfolding among three people with love and lust involving all around.
It reminds us of the old school era where wrestling used to be much violent and non-PG, of course. So what could be the reason behind the company putting such a controversial angle in this PG era?
Slice Wrestling has provided an update on the same stating that the idea came out of the mind of Vince McMahon with Paul Heyman as the storyline’s director.
It will work as to putting Bobby Lashley and Lana over as massive heels. Rusev, on the other hand, will be getting over with the WWE Universe as an underdog babyface.
There might be an additional reason why WWE is channeling this controversial storyline. Reports were available at one point hinting that Rusev and Lana were not happy with the company. They might have also wanted to leave, at one point. So this could be a punishment for both of them, as per the source,
“Rumors spread last year of the real-life married couple Rusev & Lana requesting their releases from WWE and wanting out of the company. Some within WWE feel Vince McMahon is punishing the couple by embarrassing them and making a mockery of the one true thing they hold sacred in their lives, their marriage.
Vince McMahon is known for burying characters before their departure from WWE to lower and devalue their “Stock Price” on the free-agent market.”
There’s no insider update whether Rusev and Lana are indeed having a crack in their relationship. But the insider belief is that it’s a ‘work’ just like Lana’s storyline with Dolph Ziggler, four years ago.
So, for now, she will continue growing the relationship with Bobby Lashley. This will keep Raw as more of an edgier and mature show in comparison to SmackDown which is a more real-life sports-oriented type show.
Vince McMahon is reportedly “having a blast” watching this storyline unfold. Hence, until a blow-off match between Bobby Lashley and Lana unfolds, the buildup will continue on Raw.
