WWE Raw results and recap: Bobby Lashley and Lana’s wedding crashed by Liv Morgan and Rusev

Wrestling weddings just don’t go well – some things never change, and this week’s nuptials certainly didn’t disappoint as Bobby Lashley and Lana prepared to tie the knot on the final Raw of the Sky Sports era.

The path to this point has been winding, unpredictable and utterly stupid at times, and in keeping with the storyline to date, it’s no surprise the wedding continued in exactly the same manner.

First, we had interruptions from each of the couple’s first spouses, who tried to talk them out of getting married.

Lana’s first husband took a spinebuster from Lashley, whose first wife was hit with a bouquet to the face from the Ravishing Russian.

From there, we got a third interruption as a repackaged Liv Morgan finally made her return – albeit not in the way anyone would have expected to see.

She claimed she came to WWE as a lost soul until she found love and was given a renewed purpose – before quickly revealing she was actually talking about Lana.

This got a huge pop from the fans in attendance as Lana broke down in tears, sparking a brawl between the two women as referees tried to separate them and Bobby looked on as bemused as the rest of us.

As if that wasn’t enough drama to bring the shown to an end, Rusev popped out of the huge cake to attack his rival, beating him up to cheers before he and Morgan stood tall with chants of ‘Rusev Day’ belting out from the stands.

There’s a lot to unpack there, with so much to take in – we expected Rusev and Lashley to have to continue their feud, but no one saw the Liv Morgan element coming.

Throw in her potential romance angle with Lana, and we’ve got a whirlwind of drama to no doubt dominate Raw in 2020.

Best of the rest

For anyone who doesn’t go for the soap opera storylines, this week’s Raw was actually jam-packed with exciting in-ring action and some fantastic moments to paint a picture of what the Raw landscape will look like over the coming months.

Samoa Joe stepping up to help Kevin Owens battle the O.C. will really shake things up, and once you throw Rey Mysterio into the mix the resulting six-man tag team match will be absolutely incredible – as will the journey to get there.

We’ve also got Becky Lynch set to defend her Raw Women’s championship against Asuka at the Royal Rumble, with the Man explaining she was given the match after pointing out to bosses that her contract was nearly up.

Elsewhere, Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy put on another clinic as they fought in a near-perfect contest to show that both guys need to see their stock soar in 2020.

We mentioned the O.C. earlier, and they were a driving force of this week’s show, with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson losing to Street Profits in a cracking bout that underlined the importance of their union with Randy Orton, as they fell short without him at ringside.

The Viper was still on Raw, after reports of a leg injury and a promise the future Hall of Famer would address his immediate future.

He gave a speech about his injury and how the medical evaluation put his WrestleMania status – and in-ring career – in serious doubt.

AJ Styles came out to mock his rival, saying he’d see him at WrestleMania before kicking his crutches from under him.

However, Orton still had a twist in the tale as he teased that AJ might be patient, but he’s not – quickly dropping him with the RKO and celebrating his fantastic ruse.

Quickfire results

  • Aleister Black overcame Buddy Murphy in a 15-minute classic.
  • Erick Rowan destroyed another local competitor in less than 2 minutes.
  • Charlotte Flair made Natalya tap out after 14 and a half minutes.
  • The Street Profits beat The Good Brothers in just under 12 minutes.
