Back in June, WWE held yet another round of cuts from the company and it featured several big names such as Braun Strowman and Lana. She was let go due to her lucrative contract with WWE, which Lana signed back in 2019.
For the majority of her time in WWE, Lana had been managing her real-life husband, Miro. Lana also accused WWE of making men feel more important than women.
While speaking during the East Coast Autograph Auctions virtual signing, Lana talked about changing up her look in WWE, including dying her hair blue. She revealde that Vince McMaonh was upset over her changing her hair color.
“I showed up with blue – colored my hair blue. It was like a shampoo and I was bored. I was probably going through an identity crisis again. So I dye my hair blue and Michael Hayes actually walked up to me. He’s like, ‘What are you doing?’ I’m like, ‘I don’t know. It matches my costume.’ He’s like, ‘No, no, no, no, no!’ And then I showed up with blonde hair the next day, he’s like, ‘Ah, you look great.’
“So, there you go and then I also got a call from Vince [McMahon] about the blue hair, so I had to be blonde forever. Even when I went brown. Not even brown, I had like light brown hair and I wore my hair — what I did for Royal Rumble last year. I got a call, I was told, ‘That wasn’t Lana’ and I had to put my hair in a pony, I had to go lighter and I couldn’t wear the color gold. I had to wear the color pink only. I had to wear my hair in a pony, and I had like little boy cut shorts and they were like, ‘No, no. You have to wear the leotard.’”
Miro already commented on Lana possibly joining AEW, as he noted that it is ultimately her decision. She also dropped a huge tease about making her AEW debut recently. It remains to be seen what is next in store for Lana now that she is finally free.
