When was Lopez on WWE RAW?

Lopez played the role of the ex-wife during the feud between Rusev and Bobby Lashley. Lana and Lashley were going to get married in the ring. The wedding was marred by various things including the appearance of Lashley’s ‘ex- wife’. The storyline was one of the best on WWE Raw

Lopez will now be willing to establish herself as a good wrestler in the women’s division. Her experience speaks volumes and it should over the next few weeks.

Lashley and Lana have also moved ages from that storyline as Lana was recently released by WWE. Bobby Lashley is the current champion on WWE Raw and faces Kofi Kingston at Money in the Bank for the title match.
