While speaking to Al Arabiya English, Lana explained why she’s no longer managing Rusev.
“One of the reasons why I don’t feel like I need to manage him right now is I feel like I’ve taught him everything I need to teach him, and helped him, and everything, and that’s why I have to go use my amazing ravishing ambition with other women to help bring them to the top,” Lana said.
“I think I had to help give him the ravishing ambition, and then. …Yeah, it’s more about promos. I think in wrestling and competing, he’s the best. With promos, I have to – we have to – I have to coach him. We have to go through, and I have to say, ‘Ok, let’s go through it like seven more times.’ Because when you have a conversation, and you talk, then when you yell and scream, it means more. And people listen.”
“Well, he [Rusev] really wanted me to stay home and take care of him, and cook clean and listen, and bake some salmon, and massage his feet, and comb his hair. That’s really what he wanted me to do. But just like I helped take him to the top. And look— I obviously love being with him, but at this time, I want to make sure that I make a name for myself in the women’s division. And when managing a man, unfortunately, even though I took him to the top, and I’m cutting promos with the Rock and John Cena, when they talk about the women’s revolution, my name isn’t heard anywhere. If I have to enter into the ring to fight and to compete and bring Tamina, or any other women to the top to establish my name, then that’s what I have to do.”
