With mere days left for the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, WWE Raw on Monday provided the much-needed build up for some ongoing angles before the battle in Middle East. The evening saw some excellent in-ring action from the likes of the Kabuki warriors, Seth Rollins, Becky Lynch and Erick Rowan, but was predominantly centred on the love triangle floating around Raw for the last few days.
The main segment for the evening was the 'Divorce Court' between Lana and Rusev with Jerry "The King" Lawler presiding over. Prior to the segment, Lana and her new beau Bobby Lashley were seen sitting together backstage with Lashley offering to accompany Lana to the ring. She declined, stating that she had to do it alone.
During the 'Divorce Court' Lana began ranting about all the bullying she received due to her affair with Lashley but said she wanted to reveal the truth to the fans. According to her, Rusev was a sex addict who just wanted her to become pregnant.. Lana, on her part did not want motherhood as it would ruin her career.
Lana dropped another bombshell when she said that it was Rusev who had actually cheated on her, a fact that apparently Lashley had revealed to her. As Rusev became enraged, Lashley made his way out and the brawl followed between the two superstars.
Rusev got the better during the brawl, but Lashley and Lana managed to escape thanks to Lana providing a distraction when she entered with a kendo stick and attacked her husband.
