This week on WWE Monday Night RAW, Bobby Lashley and Lana continued their controversial rivalry with Rusev. Lashley faced Rusev in a rematch of their collision at WWE TLC 2019, which Lashley won. Both men traded blows right off the bat. The Almighty One gained control but Rusev fired off a series of punches to gain some momentum. The Bulgarian Brute suplexed Lashley but a distraction from Lana turned the match back in Lashley’s favor. The Almighty One speared Rusev on the outside.

Lashley grounded Rusev and dominated the match for a minute. He swung Rusev’s leg into the ring post and continued to target it. Rusev countered a slam and sent Lashley shoulder-first into the ring post. A stiff clothesline floored Lashley and Rusev planted him with a Samoan drop. Rusev hit Lashley with a belly-to-belly suplex and rolled through a German suplex from Lashley. A nasty kick rocked Lashley but Lana distracted Rusev, which allowed Lashley to get back to his feet. Both men clotheslined each other and Liv Morgan came to the ring.

Backstage, after the match, Lana challenged Morgan and Rusev to a mixed tag team match next week on WWE Monday Night RAW. Lashley and Lana argued about it as they walked away. Rusev and Morgan later accepted the challenge and Morgan called herself the living embodiment of Lana’s karma.
