For those confused or wondering, Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush did in fact turn heel on Raw, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The turn was decided the day of the show on Monday as there was a "long discussion" over whether Lashley was better suited to remain a face or to turn heel, especially with Owens being gone and handicapping the heel side. Ultimately, the decision was made that both Lashley and the company would stand to benefit more if he was turned.
On Raw this past Monday, Lio Rush had an ear piece with him and was being fed lines by Vince McMahon. According to the Observer, one source said that Vince was feeding him every single line and Rush would just repeat what was being said to him through the ear piece.
