Rusev and Lana finally over?

Published Add your comment

Payback is now in the books and the show provided more great matches and just like the event last year, it gave us some early contenders for the match of the year award.

Two matches in particular stood out with the Fatal 4-Way for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship being arguably the match of the night.

Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins gave the show a fitting finale but the biggest talking point didn't come from the main event.

The United States Championship match between Rusev and John Cena was about as explosive an I Quit match as has been seen in the WWE.

Cena emerged victorious to regain his title but the circumstances surrounding the matches ending and the subsequent scene backstage make for the biggest talking point of the night.

Cena had Rusev locked into the STF using the top ring rope to apply pressure on Rusev's face when Rusev began shouting.

Rusev was shouting in either Bulgarian or Russian but either way it was clear he was saying the same thing over and over.

This prompted Lana to enter the ring and declare that Rusev quits therefore ending the match and his rivalry with Cena.

After the match, Rusev and Lana were seen backstage with Rusev shouting at Lana before finally telling her to leave.

A split in the unit had been rumoured for weeks and it now seems like it may have happened, unfortunately we'll have to wait for RAW to find out the true outcome of the damage to their relationship.
