Lana is on the cusp of becoming a major babyface, and WWE is playing up her sympathetic role in a big way. She not only took six announce table spots, but she’s also ostracized from her team after earning a Survivor Series spot.
Shayna Baszler sent out a picture of a match planned for RAW on Monday. Nia Jax and Baszler are set to take on Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke in a non-title match. Lana is not in the picture at all, and Baszler wants it that way.
The Queen Of Spades sent out a tweet with a graphic of her upcoming match. She said “OUR team. You’ll learn” in the caption. Baszler followed that up with another tweet to clarify exactly what she meant.
Lana isn’t in this pic because we aren’t wrestling her on Monday. She knows by now who’s team this is (the table told her) #WWERaw
Lana is not accepted by her own team. That could be the right way to go if they want to get her over. Allowing the Ravishing Russian time in the ring to display that pro wrestling ability she’s been working so hard on might be a good idea too.
WWE obviously has something in store for Lana. Let’s just see if Vince McMahon has the patience to let it build.
