Rusev Says He Helped Collaborate The Lana Affair Storyline

In a new interview with The Sun, WWE star Rusev spoke about the current affair storyline going on between his wife Lana and former Intercontinental champion Bobby Lashley. The Bulgarian Brute reveals that despite the awkward connotations, he actually heavily collaborated into the angle’s creation.

It’s a collaboration. There’s adjustments that we make, but that’s just life. We’re committed to our characters on TV, so we just have to make slight adjustments, but we’re professionals and we’re coping with it. It’s great, I think we are in the best storyline currently going on and the best storyline that’s been around for years. It’s getting a lot of views and a lot of eyes on it. Some people like it, some people love it, but at the end of the day, it’s the hottest storyline going on.

The feud has been receiving it’s fair share of criticism, but Rusev calls it one of wrestling’s better stories. He goes on to say that his goal is to continue to ride the wave, and work his way back to the top.

My goal is to be healthy, that’s my first-and-foremost. It doesn’t matter about storylines or things like that. One day you ride a tank but the next day, you do nothing but main event dark matches so it’s a big wave, you just gotta ride the wave and do the best with anything that is given to you. You gotta enjoy everything you do, and you gotta control what you can control because some things you can’t, and there’s no point being mad so whatever I can control, I do, and if not, I’m just having a blast with it.
