I can’t imagine it’s all that fun watching your real life wife kissing another man over and over again…unless that’s your thing I suppose. It’s been a reality for Rusev over the past few months as WWE continues to persist with this Lana/Bobby Lashley love storyline.
Thankfully, Rusev doesn’t care what his wife gets up to, because at least he doesn’t have to kiss Bobby Lashley.
Speaking in an interview with Jim Alexander of Reel Talker, the Bulgarian said:
”It’s no different than with Brad Pitt or any of the other actors in Hollywood. That’s what you do. You’re an actor and if a certain role requires you to do something like that… I mean, you can always say no but we’re not that people, we’ll always be professional. I don’t think it’s a problem at all for me, personally. I know it’s not a problem for her. And it was always about her, I always asked her. You know, people always run to me and ask me ‘how are you feeling about this?’ I’m like ‘why are you asking me? Why don’t you go and ask her? She’s the one who is supposed to kiss him every now and again. I’m not kissing a guy.’ … So, kudos to her for being professional. If she didn’t agree to that then we would have done something completely different, right? But here we are, a few months in, and it’s the hottest thing going in WWE.”
I guess we have to applaud everyone involved in this storyline for persevering and being professional. It’s made watching it slightly less mortifying.
