Lana on rumors of backstage heat


TMZ had broken the news back in October 2015 that WWE’s Ravishing Russian Lana and the former United States Champion Rusev have been engaged in real life.

However, at that time Lana was involved in a storyline with Dolph Ziggler and her now real-life husband Rusev was romantically linked to Summer Rae on WWE Programming.

So after these reports broke out, rumors started that WWE Managment was not happy with this real-life couple as Officials believed that they had broken the kayfabe.

During a recent interview on Baby Huey & Bimbo Jimbo radio show, Lana was asked about these speculations and the SmackDown Star said that Mr McMahon just decided to go to a different route:

“The truth was that Vince McMahon just decided to go a different route, and that’s just what it was. Rusev and I were trending for like three days straight ‘Rusev and Lana are engaged’ He just made the decision at that time he goes ok I want to bring them back together…People are always going to talk. I think for 6 months after that the headline was Lana has nuclear heat, (laughter) and I am like great! You know, you’re talking about me.”

Apart from this, Lana also talked about dropping her Russian accent on Total Divas and more.

  • Darrin Tyler

    sells her body to a anyone that wants to use it.

  • Soulshroude

    At least it wasn’t on Howard Stern.

  • Arnold Jackson

    Because she gets a reaction from the crowd and she cuts a decent promo. Tamina might to be super over with the crowd but since adding Lana, she is probably the most over she has ever been. That’s not saying much, but that is also the truth.

  • Arnold Jackson

    I bet “Baby Huey and Bimbo Jimbo” put out a quality radio program. Lana must have been thrilled when she was told that was going to be her PR interview for the day.

  • jedi

    Because the reaction she gets as a valet she is phenomenal. Them together is gold Jerry it’s gold! Lol

  • CC

    Because as bad as a wrestler she might be (she is still learning), she is a great manager.
    People give all the love in the world to Miss Elizabeth from back in the day, but she did nothing.

  • MrDr3w

    She cuts great promo, trains her butt off, motivates others to get better, and gets buried.

  • ROB-1.

    Why does the WWE keep her around? What does she do?
