Rusev, Lana and Bobby Lashley are part of a major WWE storyline. The casual WWE fans really like the storyline. Most hardcore wrestling fans hate it. Well, the storyline has helped WWE receive good ratings. So far, it is working really well.
Rusev is Lana’s real-life husband. It came as a shock to many when he allowed his real-life wife to kiss Bobby Lashley on WWE TV, even though it a sight we see in Hollywood all the time. Rusev stated that the entire storyline was actually his idea.
He was on Reel Talker recently and spoke about the storyline. He was first asked about how he started dating Lana. "We were always riding together after shows, and we were always next to each other while riding with different people in cars.
I felt like something was happening, but I didn't want to scare anybody. I didn't want to push her away," Rusev said. "We kind of just took our time. Eventually, I invited her out on a date, and she started asking, 'what's your favorite color?' Next thing you know we kiss, then we move in together.
Then we bought a home." According to Rusev, the storyline has not effected their marriage and they are actually enjoying all the fame that they are getting as a result of the storyline. Quite recently, Liv Morgan was added into the mix as well.
