The go-home RAW edition for WWE TLC 2019, the last WWE PPV of the year, and we still do not have a single match announced from the RAW side. This gives a feeling that the event is an afterthought for WWE and that they are already looking ahead for the year 2020. With that in mind, AJ Styles is getting a rematch against Rey Mysterio for the United States Championship. And that will happen with Randy Orton lurking around Styles. Rusev and Lana will “officially divorce,” whatever that means. And expect multiple matches to be announced for TLC.
We go right into the RAW theme song to open the show. After some pyro and bad camera work, we cut to Jerry Lawler in the center of the ring.
Lawler tells us how Rusev & Lana’s relationship has reached the point of no return. He announces Lana to come out and she makes her way out with a lawyer. She gives some papers to Lawler and he reads out that Lana has waived off the restraining order temporarily for the divorce proceedings. Rusev makes his way to the ring and looks really happy as the crowd gets behind him.
Both Lana and Rusev takes the mic and Rusev cuts off Lana to address the crowd. Lana tells Rusev that she used to love him when others use to hate him. She also says he has turned out to be a sad person like many famous people and the Rusev Day chants got to his head. Rusev gets up from his chair and Lana shouts at her, telling him that Rusev would go to jail if he takes one more step. Rusev replies that actually it is him who needs protection and shows the video from last week where Lashley and Lana were arrested.
Lana tries to run down Rusev on the mic but gets frustrated when the crowd gets behind him. Rusev, on the other hand, is pretty happy and wants to sign the papers. He takes the pen and goes to sign the paper but Lana wants to sign the papers first. Now, they start arguing over who gets their dog. Lana eventually signs the papers and Rusev throws some tantrum which brings out Bobby Lashley.
Lashley comes out as the chants for the Rusev Day gets louder. Lashley says Rusev should sign the papers quickly and afterward he would ask Lana to marry him. Rusev tells him to take her away and he is happy with the Rusev Day. Rusev signs the papers and Lashley takes the opportunity to slam his head onto the table.
Lashley follows Rusev as he moves out of the ring where Lashley slams him into the barricade. He throws him back into the ring where Rusev turns things around with a Machcka kick and sends Lashley through the table with a belly to belly suplex. Rusev makes his way to the backstage.
