We are in Greenville, South Carolina and your announcers are Samoa Joe, Vic Joseph, and Jerry Lawler.
Jerry Lawler is in the ring and he has a table, chairs, and two microphones with him. Jerry mentions that we have been witnessing the demise of the marriage of Lana and Rusev. Jerry says he tried to work it out but they are beyond the point of no return. Jerry says he is here for the first ever signing of a divorce contract.
Lana makes her way to the ring with her ‘lawyer’. Lana makes sure to pose for the crowd during this somber time.
The ‘lawyer’ gives Jerry a copy of the papers.
Jerry says Lana has waived the distance provision in the Restraining Order, but all other provisions are still to be enforced.
Rusev makes his way to the ring and he looks like he is coming to do something other than sign his divorce papers.

Lana says she wants to get this off her chest. She says she used to love him. When people insulted you, Lana says she loved him. Lana tells Rusev not to make it about him. Lana says you, like so many other famous people ended up being a statistic. All of the fame got to your head. When the Rusev Day supporters came out, it got to your head.
Lana says she is a smart and intelligent woman. It wasn’t you who made our marriage fail, it was the WWE universe.
Rusev tells Lana shee needs to come down.
Lana tells Rusev not to get any closer or he will be violating the restraining order (even if Lana announced that provision was waived moments earlier).

Lana calls Rusev a monster and she says that no one will ever match up to her. Lana says no one will ever love you like she did and he will never find anyone like her again.
Rusev says he can’t stand her so why would he want anyone like her.
Lana freaks out and says it was because of the people that the marriage failed.
Rusev says we get to the point and sign the divorce papers.

Lana tells Rusev she will sign first.

Lana signs the papers and then Rusev thinks about it and he says he needs something from Lana before he signs the papers.
Lana asks Rusev if he wants sex again.
Rusev says he wants a match with her hot hot boyfriend Bobby Lashley.
Bobby Lashley makes his way to the ring and he says this is ridiculous. Lashley complains about Rusev making jokes about him and his Lana. Lashley says when this divorce is over, he is going to ask Lana to marry him.
Rusev tells Bobby he can have her but she is just bad. At the end of the day, he wants to live happily on RUSEV DAY.
Lana has to hold Lashley back. Rusev says he will sign the papers and then he will see Bobby when they have their match on Rusev Day.

Drew says the baby is cross eyed so we know it is Matt’s. Drew says Matt has been successful in the ring, but he has not made the best decisions outside of the ring.

Seth asks what do you want from him? He has been asking himself that for a long time. We used to get along and see things eye to eye. Then something happened and it went wrong. He did everything right. He does not take nights off. He fights through injuries. He lays it all on the line for each and every one of you every time. Seth says he sticks his neck out for you guys in the ring and in the media. He gets spit on and disrespected and he is sick of it. Seth says he came out here last week and he had nothing to do with AOP. That was the truth, but the truth is not good enough for you. You believed some idiot named Kevin Owens who said I was a liar and you rode that bandwagon.
Seth says he tried to tell you and Kevin that he had nothing to do with AOP. That was the truth. Once again, the truth is not good enough for you. In 2019, what is good enough for you people? What does he have to do? Does he have to go into that ring and kill himself? He beat Brock twice and he brought the Universal Title back but that was not good enough.
You want to push him, so it is time to push back. Your negativity is a self fulfilling prophecy and it has turned your fiction into fact. It has turned him to stand side by side with two men who understand. It has turned to him to stand side by side with the AOP.
