And then what? Wrestling is a unique form of entertainment with live performances, athleticism and storytelling all rolled into one. That isn’t the easiest thing in the world to pull off and sometimes it works a little bit better than others. Some of the stories that you see don’t develop as well as others, but some of them are doomed from the start. That was the case with a recent example.
Starting back in September 2019, the Lana/Rusev/Bobby Lashley love triangle was not the most well received story in recent memory. The situation dragged on for months with fans not exactly liking what they were being offered. One of the biggest moments was Lana marrying Lashley on Monday Night Raw, but Liv Morgan interrupted, saying she and Lana had been having an affair. This was never followed up on, and now we know why.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the story was never followed up on because there was never any long term plan for the story. Paul Heyman booked the angle with the sole purpose of popping the crowd for that one night with no followup planned. Morgan would face Lana in a series of matches but there was no major mention of the angle. There is no word on why there was no followup planned.
It was a heck of a moment. Check out Morgan crashing the wedding:
Opinion: Does this really surprise you? It was pretty clear as soon as we got to the followup Monday Night Raw and nothing was said that there was no plan in mind. That isn’t the best sign for Morgan, but it also doesn’t say much for WWE creative. If they’re just throwing things out there with no plan for anything going forward, why do they need so many people to put a show together?
