When Rusev debuted a couple of years ago with the Ravishing Russian Lana as his mouthpiece, they managed to become major heels right off the bat. The anti-American rhetoric and Lana in her skin tight skirts got the crowd going every night. Rusev went on to become an almost unstoppable monster with Lana encouraging him all the way. What the hell has happened with this pair, they have become a shadow of their former selves in a couple of short years. We watched Rusev have one of the best entrances to Mania ever coming in riding a Russian tank with half the Russian army guarding him, and Lana was right beside him. Last week at Battleground Rusev met John Cena in a flag match. Not only was it one of the most boring matches I've ever watched, but instead of taking steps forward Rusev seems to be back where he was when he debuted. Only difference this time was Lana wasn't with him. Instead she has gone from being this ice queen in a short skirt to getting squashed in the ring in a matter of minutes. How could the WWE screw up a couple that had so much promise? First of all Lana should NOT be wrestling at all. When you have someone like Asuka spinning her tires in NXT, why is Lana getting not only a match each week, but in three cases a shot at the title. It's almost embarrassing to watch her right now. Rusev is doing no better either. It's almost like they don't want them together, but apart yea doesn't work for me. This hasn't just happened recently either. I began to notice the changes during that horrible storyline with Ziggler and Summer Rae. Rusev and Lana have in my eyes never recovered from it, it was that bad. Then they had the heat from getting married, don't know if that is or was a factor and then you had some injuries. It's almost mind boggling that you had almost the perfect twosome, great booking and watch it go up in smoke. Now I know things change, wrestlers grow and move on but they usually get better storylines, not in this case. Thoughts or is it just me?
