Is there any juice left to squeeze?
Maybe it was just the live crowd in Lexington, Kentucky or maybe fans are just done with the Rusev-Lana-Bobby Lashley story. Tonight (Jan. 13) on Raw, Rusev and Lashley had your basic one-on-one match. The problem was the in-ring action was just okay and the live crowd really didn’t care what was going on between the ropes.
Apathy is the last thing you want in pro wrestling. Going on four months of Rusev, Lana, and Lashley drowning under WWE Creative, maybe this angle is finally getting closer to its expiration date.
The end of the match would come when Rusev got distracted and ate a Lashley spear.
A sub-par Rusev Day indeed.
The addition of Liv Morgan to the love triangle should in theory add a little more life into the story. Instead, dragging Morgan down with the ship may be signaling the end to a WWE romance angle that just won’t end.
Next week, Bobby Lashley and Lana will take on Rusev and Liv Morgan in a mixed tag match. Worst case scenario, how long can WWE keep this very bad story going?
