Lana will be teaming up with the current Raw women’s champion Asuka to challenge the women’s tag team champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler at the upcoming TLC event.
The former NXT star recently posted a video on social media promoting her upcoming bout. She incorporated some real life elements into her promo in the video and got emotional during it.
Lana first mentioned how she doesn’t talk a lot about how she sees herself in WWE but she went on to claim that she knows exactly who she is and what she lacks:
“I guess I don’t really talk much about how I see myself in WWE, but I know exactly who I am and I know what I lack. I know that most of the girls are more gifted than me, more talented than me, and this might come to a really big surprise to everyone, but I really want to be champion.”
The female star got emotional cutting the promo further and she said that it takes a lot of courage for her to open up about her status and goals in the company:
“And it takes a lot of courage for me to say that because I know a lot of people are like, ‘Lana wants to be champion? How delusional is she?’ But I have big dreams, and you know, I’m happy to pack my bags and show up at TLC and you know, fight for my life, even though I know those girls might snap me in half, but since I’ve begun this journey on my own, I want to fight. And I want to fight even though I might get my ass kicked because I don’t want to be defined by anyone else but myself, and that’s scary. I want to prove something. I don’t want to prove, I have to prove. I have to prove it to myself, I have to prove it to my colleagues, I have to prove it to the fans that I want to be good. Damn it, I want to be champion.”
