Can Rusev & Lana bounce back from a crushing Rumble?
During the Royal Rumble Kickoff, The Super Athlete inadvertently knocked his wife off the ring apron and to the arena floor, where she injured her ankle. While Rusev was focused on Lana, Shinsuke Nakamura clobbered him with a Kinshasa from behind to regain the United States Championship.
The bad tidings continued in the Women’s Royal Rumble Match, as Lana limped down the aisle, attempting to enter the match. Unfortunately, The Ravishing Russian’s injury would prevent her from even making it to the ring. That gave Becky Lynch the opening she needed to enter and win the 30-Superstar over-the-top-rope battle. A distraught Lana bared her soul in a WWE.com Exclusive later that night, leaving the WWE Universe to wonder when things will start looking up for the couple.
Will this evening’s SmackDown LIVE be a happier Rusev Day for The Bulgarian Brute & Lana? Find out on tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network.
