The storyline saw Rusev’s wife Lana ditch him for Lashley, get a divorce, then marry Lashley, but the wedding was crashed by Liv Morgan who claimed she was in love with Lana, and then after a short TV mixed tag match that was about it.
Speaking with Digital Spy, Lashley said:
“I don’t think it had a proper conclusion. I think there was so much we could do. We had a full head of steam, people wanted Rusev to rip my arms off and beat me with them. I really don’t know what happened to tell you the truth. I think we were at the point where the revenge needed to happen and it didn’t. I don’t know where we could have went or where we were going to go with it. I just wish that I could have had the match that I wanted to have with Rusev. I’ve seen him in some great matches and I think I could have had one with him.”
Rusev was released by WWE on April 15 following a months-long contract dispute between he and the company.
