Lana has had as difficult finish to 2015 after breaking out earlier in the year as one of the best mouthpieces in WWE. Just to separate what’s happened, we’ll chronicle it in a timetable below:
- September 6, 2015: Lana suffered a wrist fracture while training prior to a WWE live event in Fairfax, Virginia. The injury required surgery but was expected to keep her out the rest of the year. The company had been trying to get her in-ring improved as the feeling was she had broke out as a star on the mic.
- October 11, 2015:News leaked through TMZ.com that Lana and Rusev were engaged to be married in the midst of a storyline where they had split and she was with Dolph Ziggler. This drew heat from WWE officials but the company attempted to spin it. Regardless, it did the storyline in.
- November 17, 2015: Lana engaged Paige in some comments on Twitter that implied Paige bullied her during her time in developmental. While the comments can now be taken as a “worked shoot,” Lana’s original tweet was deleted. WWE officials were not happy with the activity, which most likely caused the deletion.
- November 23, 2015: Lana was backstage at WWE Raw with Rusev at WWE Raw in Nashville, Tennessee, where they have a home together. Still recovering from her wrist injury, she recently did work for her role in the WWE Studios production “Interrogation.”
Rusev is back on television, aligned with The Authority. It will be interesting to see how Lana is reintroduced and if all the heat on her dies down as she is expected to return at the beginning of next year.
