WWE Monday Night RAW Recap: Lana and Bobby Lashley to Marry Tonight

It's the final Monday Night RAW of 2019 (and the decade) and the WWE is putting on an event that fans can't miss. The wedding of Bobby Lashley and Lana.

In all seriousness, the storyline between Lashley, Lana and Rusev has been polarizing but it's getting a reaction and tonight might be where it all ends (hopefully). Following Rusev and Lana's divorce, Lashley proposed to his girlfriend at the behest of Lana herself. Now that we're getting an on-air wedding shenanigans will likely occur.

Will the newly single Rusev wreck the wedding or will someone else crash the party? Will Lashley and Lana go through with the nuptials? Fans will have to watch and find out.

Elsewhere, Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy will have a rematch of their bout at TLC tonight. Black got the victory over Murphy at the pay-per-view, but Buddy feels he can hand Aleister's first singles loss on the main roster. It'll be interesting to see what happens, but fans can expect both men to put on another great match.

Rey Mysterio lost the US Championship at MSG last week to Andrade, so where does Mysterio go from here? He does have a bone to pick with Seth Rollins and the Authors of Pain after what happened last week. The AOP took it to Samoa Joe who was on commentary so a tag match looks to be in the cards for both sides.

Andrade, on the other hand, now has his first championship in the WWE. How will he act as the defacto top champion of RAW? And who will step up to challenge him first?

A lot is expected to go down on the December 30 episode of Monday NIght RAW. Here's a rundown of everything that happened.
