Rusev/Lana Divorce Segment, US Title Rematch Scheduled For WWE Raw

Go-home show before TLC…

WWE

It’s the final episode of WWE Monday Night Raw before next Sunday’s TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs pay-per-view, and two items have been announced for the Greenville, SC telecast.

The first will feature Rusev and Lana getting divorced, though it’s not clear what exactly the segment will entail.

The angle began on the October 7 edition of Raw, when Lana was seen in bed with Bobby Lashley. The conflict has played out over the two months since, with Rusev set to face Lashley last Sunday at Starrcade in a last man standing match, though it was scrapped due to storyline reasons.

The other is a US title rematch pitting champion Rey Mysterio against the man he defeated for the gold, AJ Styles.

Mysterio captured the title from Styles on the November 25 episode of Raw. Originally, Styles was to have defended the belt against Humberto Carrillo that night, but The OC attacked Carrillo earlier in the evening.

That led to Mysterio winning a sudden number one contender’s fatal four way against Drew McIntyre, Randy Orton, and Ricochet, to earn the immediate match with Styles.
