English also revealed he was not uncomfortable with the idea of the storyline affair with Lana. The former WWE star said he did not have problem being Lana’s love interest in the storyline. He said:
“I’m not uncomfortable in the sense of, ‘Oh, you’ve got to do a romantic or even like fake romantic angle with someone, even if you had to kiss someone. I am both, and both especially about me and my wife, we’re both performers, so we get it.
“There is no issue in doing something romantic or even a little bit sexual or whatever if it’s for the part. So, that part wasn’t uncomfortable. The idea of like I had to fake this affair with Lana, that was never an issue.”
Lana was also involved in a love angle with Bobby Lashley and betraying on Rusev. But that was dropped soon and the real life couple were both released from the company.
