• Vince McMahon’s Reaction To Negative Fan Response To Rusev-Lana-Lashley Storyline
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, the segment between Lana – Rusev – Bobby Lashley got a negative response from fans and they chanted “boring” during it.
According to Wrestlingnewsco, Vince McMahon gets a kick out of this response from fans and thinks it’s only going to help Lashley’s heel character:
“A source told me that [Vince] McMahon gets a kick out of the storyline and feels that the negative reaction is just getting more heat on Lashley. Another thing that is being seen as a positive about this angle is the YouTube numbers.
Although YouTube doesn’t bring in anything close to the TV revenue, the YouTube numbers are included in the social media stats that they use in their quarterly reports so anything that can boost their stats is something that is welcomed by McMahon.”
