Back in September of 2019 Lana shocked the world when she returned to TV and started kissing Bobby Lashley live on Monday Night Raw.
Lana’s return kicked off an affair storyline involving herself, Bobby Lashley and Rusev, and the storyline was the talk of the wrestling world for several months.
During a recent interview with Sporting News Bobby Lashley admitted that he felt awkward doing the storyline, and that he didn’t originally like the idea.
“I didn’t understand the magnitude of it. But the one thing I did know was that I was doing something different. And you can say whatever you want about Lana but she was 100 percent committed and invested in that character. I felt awkward doing it. I’m always in fight mode but it was good to pull me out of that mode. But I needed to relax and just have fun with it. I loosened up because I knew we were trying to entertain people. I understood that, even though I didn’t originally like the idea and ended up being cool with it. It’s not comfortable for me but I understood the lesson I was being taught.”
For better or worse the storyline got a lot of people talking, but it eventually fizzled out without much of a payoff.
