ANAHEIM, Calif., Aug. 9 (UPI) — Like most WWE weddings, United States Champion Rusev and his wife Lana’s live celebration of their marriage ended in disaster after Roman Reigns crashed the party.
The event which took place on Raw Monday, was for Rusev and his manager Lana, who were actually married recently outside of WWE, to declare their love for each other and to share with the WWE Universe photos from their special day.
The couple fully decked out in their own unique wedding attire, had the ring nicely decorated with a red carpet, flowers and a table full of champagne and wedding cakes.
As The Super Athlete and Ravishing Russian’s wedding slideshow was met with boos from the crowd, Roman Reigns who has been feuding with Rusev recently, appeared to crash the party and give a toast as an impromptu best man.
Reigns held nothing back against his rival however, referring to Lana as a mail-order bride who Rusev wasn’t able to satisfy on their wedding night. Enraged, the U.S. champ attacked Reigns and a brawl ensued which ended with Lana diving face-first into a cake after Reigns bumped Rusev into her.
With her dress ruined and completely covered in cake, Lana screamed as Reigns exited the ring with a smile on his face. “@thelanawwe wedding dreams have been #CRUSHED!,” WWE’s official Instagram account noted alongside a closer look at Lana covered in cake.

Afterwards, Rusev demanded backstage that he wanted revenge against Reigns to Raw general manager Mick Foley who then set a match for the Bulgarian Brute to face The Big Dog at SummerSlam for his United States Championship.
SummerSlam is set to take place Aug. 21.
