Lana was one of the best parts of WWE television, working hard to make a name for herself in the company. The Ravishing Russian who dropped her accent was ultimately released by WWE because of her lucrative contract with the company.
The final few months of her time in WWE saw her engage in a longstanding feud with Nia Jax. It usually saw Lana being put through the announcer’s table, which was McMahon’s way of gaining sympathy for Lana.
While speaking on Busted Open, the current CJ Perry revealed that both Miro and Vince McMahon rejected her pitch to be put through a table. In the end, she got what she wanted.
“I actually begged for it. I’m not even kidding. I wanted to go through a table for a really long time, and Miro was like, ‘Absolutely not!’ He’s like, ‘Do you want to die?’ And I’m like, ‘No, but I wanna go through a table!’ I pitched so many times for me to go through a table.
When we had that story with Bobby Lashley. I pitched when we had that match with Liv. He was with Liv and I was with Bobby. I’m like, ‘You superkick Bobby, he moves out of the way, you superkick me in the face, and we’re gonna have a table! I can go through a table!’ But, Vince and Miro shut that down, first Miro shut that down.”
Lana also recently made it clear that she would love to work with Miro in AEW. We will have to wait and see whether she will make her way to All Elite Wrestling or not.
