• Backstage News On Who Added Liv Morgan To Lana – Bobby Lashley Storyline
According to Wrestlingnewsco, the original plan wasn’t for Liv Morgan to get added to the Lana – Bobby Lashley storyline, but it was RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman’s decision to add her to this storyline.
Heyman wants to push Liv and that’s why he decided to add her to this top storyline and instantly put fans’ attention on her.
While fans on Social Media are very negative about the Lana – Lashley storyline, the numbers drawn by them tell a different story.
Not only were the RAW overrun numbers for the Lana wedding great, but their segments on YouTube did almost 8 million views!
And if anyone thinks WWE doesn’t make enough money from YouTube, then think again, because their YouTube revenue for 2019 was almost $13 million!
