WWE has made this mistake before and it looks like they are hell-bent on doing it again.
In fact, WWE has already broken up couples both in real life and in storylines in the past, sometimes even to the same people, but it just doesn’t seem like they ever learn their lesson. For example, Rusev and Lana have been an item on television for years now and despite having a huge level of success as a pair, WWE still seems to want to break up the couple for singles runs. With that being said and the fact that WWE had already tried this two years ago with Dolph Ziggler and Summer Rae involved the last time, one has to wonder if it’s going to work this time.
To be completely fair, the only reason it didn’t work last time is due to the fact that Lana exposed the storyline, which involved him leaving Rusev for Dolph Ziggler and Rusev choosing Summer Rae over Lana, by giving pictures of her engagement to TMZ. Of course is was still floundering regardless with fans, especially with how outrageous it was from the start, but the TMZ story just gave WWE one more reason to nix the storyline and put the power couple back together once again.
According to Stillrealtous.com,”Although splitting up Lana and Rusev has not worked in the past, it looks like WWE officials are going to give it another shot, as the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that current plans call for the power couple to split up.”
What are your thoughts? Will it work? How valuable of an asset will Lana be to the woman’s division if she does end up in singles competition either in NXT or the main roster? Let us know in the comments below and be sure to like us on Facebook for more!
