Rusev Reveals Cheating Storyline Is A Collaborative Effort, Believes It's The Hottest Story Going

Rusev speaks about his on-screen love life.

After a long hiatus, Lana returned to WWE television on Sept. 30, hooking up with her new man, Bobby Lashley, right in front of her husband, Rusev. The angle kicked off the currently ongoing cheating storyline where Lana is having sex with Lashley because Rusev is a sex addict who wants to put a baby inside of her.

In an interview with The Sun, Rusev revealed how the three parties work together behind the scenes.

"There's adjustments that we make, but that's just life. We're committed to our characters on TV, so we just have to make slight adjustments, but we're professionals and we're coping with it. It's great, I think we are in the best storyline currently going on and the best storyline that's been around for years. It's getting a lot of views and a lot of eyes on it. Some people like it, some people love it, but at the end of the day, it's the hottest storyline going on," he said. "My goal is to be healthy, that's my first-and-foremost. It doesn't matter about storylines or things like that. One day you ride a tank but the next day, you do nothing but main event dark matches so it's a big wave, you just gotta ride the wave and do the best with anything that is given to you. You gotta enjoy everything you do, and you gotta control what you can control because some things you can't, and there's no point being mad so whatever I can control, I do, and if not, I'm just having a blast with it."

Lashley previously revealed that he has gotten death threats over the storyline. You can view his full comments by clicking here.

The storyline took another turn on Monday when Lana faked her pregnancy to set up Lashley attacking Rusev.
