Lana faked a pregnancy which allowed Lashley to beat Rusev on Raw

The Ravishing Russian Lana had teased a big reveal on Raw before the Manchester show.

The WWE was in the UK and this Raw episode was actually shot after SmackDown last week.

However, there still were many twists and turns in this show with Lana coming out to the ring.

The wife of Rusev claimed that she had been pregnant for nine weeks with many in the crowd sharing their shocked reactions.

Lana then broke it down, while taking a swipe at the “stupid” Manchester crowd, and claimed she was with Lashley for the past seven weeks and this child was Rusev’s.

The Russian and Rusev tried to make sense of what was going on and she started to slap her husband too.

This brought Lashley out to the ring and the former MMA star beat Rusev down.

The Bulgarian has been targeted by Lashley ever since this angle started. This turned out to be another chance for the former MMA fighter to show his dominance over Rusev.

Lana fakes pregnancy

Lana and Rusev have been married for a while and she claimed in the King’s Court that all the Bulgarian wanted to have was babies.

She had even highlighted that Lashley had told her about Rusev’s infidelity, something the Bulgarian refuted.

However, when Lana went down the ramp with Lashley in Manchester, the Russian confirmed that this was just a ploy to bring Rusev out to the ring.

Lana claimed that she couldn’t “believe” that Rusev fell for this trick.

What next for Lana and Rusev?

It is surprising that a match between Rusev and Lashley hasn’t been announced for Survivor Series.

The pay-per-view is packed with some great matches, and it will be interesting to see how things develop between the pair.

This isn’t the first time WWE has tried this angle, but it just doesn’t seem to be working at the moment.

Lashley and Rusev are great brawlers in their own right but bringing Lana into the equation hasn’t seen sparks regularly.

Watching Rusev getting pummelled by Lashley is also a little frustrating.

Lashley has also been involved in some cringe-worthy out-of-ring segments.

Hopefully, the WWE doesn’t drag this story for too long and we can see the end of this storyline soon.
