Rusev agrees to divorce Lana in exchange for match with her new boyfriend, Bobby Lashley

This is still a very bad pro wrestling angle.

We’re two months into the Rusev, Lana, and Bobby Lashley love triangle and nothing has really changed. WWE has dug themselves into a hole and they can’t dig out of it. It’s just really bad television week in and week out.

Despite wallowing in WWE creative, Rusev is trying to make the best of a bad situation. This week on Raw, Lana and Rusev signed the divorce papers to officially end their marriage.

Rusev, being sneaky like a fox, had one final request for his lovely wife before their divorce was finalized; he wanted a match with Lashley. Perhaps at TLC this weekend?

Look, this story sucks, but it still feels like Rusev is getting over as one of Raw’s better babyfaces. Rusev is just that good. Even the ‘Rusev Day” gimmick is probably 18 months or so beyond it’s expiration date, and our Bulgarian Brute is getting it back over.

There is some light at the end of the tunnel. Can WWE salvage the latest push for Rusev?
