The final RAW of both the year and the decade was bookended by the marriage of Bobby Lashley and Lana after weeks of controversial segments surrounding the two stars and Lana’s now ex-husband Rusev.
It was quite clear that this wouldn’t be a straight forward segment when it was revealed as the main event and that couldn’t be more true since the wedding was interrupted by no fewer than four people who all claimed to be ex-lovers of the happy couple. The most shocking of all of these was Liv Morgan who made her first WWE appearance in more than four months to announce that she was once in a relationship with Lana and the fact that she was marrying Lashley broke her heart.
It was the kind of shock that the WWE Universe has become accustomed to so it was obvious that Vince McMahon was behind it, but what was the Chairman’s reaction to the most controversial storyline of the year?
A source told WrestlingNewsCo that Vince McMahon was in a good mood following the show since he has been wanting to add more crazy storylines to the product for a number of months.
“Vince has wanted to do more crazy stories like this but he has to balance things out to satisfy the people at USA [Network] and the sponsors. He got what he wanted this week and the overrun did nice numbers so Vince is in a good mood.”
The site continued to state that the current storyline is now far from over and could now continue for a number of months after Liv Morgan’s addition to the angle.
The fact that McMahon was happy with the segment means that it’s unlikely that the online backlash will have any kind of effect on this controversial story moving forward.
