The Rock made his triumphant return to WWE television Monday night on Raw, hijacking a segment of the three-hour broadcast meant (in theory) to promote his appearance at WrestleMania 32.
The Rock rolled up to Miami’s American Airlines Arena in a muscled-up truck, ego inflamed, and proceeded to make his way to the ring, taking breaks to diss former foe the Big Show’s career choices, hang out with his good pal Rick Ross and flirt with Lana (who was one of his targets the last time he was on Raw)
The Rock told Lana the last time they were together was in Brooklyn. Then Lana came to his hotel room and surprised him. Lana said she didn’t want to be with Rusev because he smells like rotten testicles. They got drunk and did some special exercises. Lana showed him the one legged Russian vacuum. Rusev then appears, with The Rock saying they were just talking about him. Rock says he heard they broke up, but Lana says they’re engaged to be married. Rock congratulates them and says Lana is a hell of a woman because she’s flexible as hell.
Rock’s bizarre interaction with Lana was meant to embarrass her since WWE higher-ups are still ticked off with her.
Dave Meltzer said on the post-Raw edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Lana recently said something that’s getting her a lot of negative attention backstage.
“It’s probably nothing except everyone is talking about it,” said Meltzer.
Previously, Lana was in the doghouse after she went public with her engagement to Rusev while they were broken up on WWE television. She also didn’t win anybody over by calling out Paige on Twitter a few months ago. Despite what’s going on with Lana, Rusev is still well liked backstage.
