I guess Lana deserves it. There have been very few WWE stories in 2019 that can compare to the saga of Lana/Bobby Lashley/Rusev. The story started all the way back in September and there is no reason to believe that it is going to be wrapping up anytime soon. It has gone on for over three months now and there have been a variety of twists and turns to the whole thing. It has helped one person in particular though.
One of the big peaks of the story took place on the final Monday Night Raw of the year with Lashley and Lana getting married. The segment went on for a very long time with the better part of half an hour being dedicated to the whole ordeal. This gave the fans a lot of time to let their voices be heard and it turns out that the reaction to it got someone some praise for their efforts.
According to Tom Colohue on Twitter, Lana received a lot of praise backstage for her performance in the wedding segment and her improvised responses to the crowd in particular. Both Vince McMahon and Paul Heyman are said to be very supportive of Lana at the moment, with her stock having almost never been happy. There is no word on what is next for the story of where things may be going next.
One last note before I head out to New Year's festivities.
According to several #WWE sources, Vince McMahon and Paul Heyman have apparently never been happier with Lana than they are right now.
Particularly with her improvisational work during #Raw last night.

She did do well with the whole thing. Check out how Lana handled the segment, plus what happened after the show went off the air:
Opinion: I know it hasn’t been well received but there is an audience for what is going on. At the same time, you have to push someone at some point and even though the material is not great, they are certainly letting Lana run with whatever she is being given. WWE is going to notice how hard she is working to get the material over and that is certainly the case here. Now if only everything else about the whole story could get better.
