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 with East Coast Autograph Auctions, Lana revealed that she told Miro the first day they started dating that she is likely to kiss others on-screen.
“It’s not real. The first thing I told my husband [Miro] when we started dating, I was like, ‘If you think I’m gonna be the person and I’m not gonna be making out with people on screen, then we probably shouldn’t be dating.’ Before I came into wrestling, I was usually always that person and I was very self-aware that I was that person. Then it just happened to be in WWE, a lot of time, I played that role as well. To me, it was normal. It’s acting. What’s always weird to me about pro wrestling is when people have a hard time doing relationship stuff. None of it is true. It’s literally Tony Khan or Vince McMahon deciding. It’s real in the sense that you can break your bones.
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.
