WWE United States champion Kalisto has supposedly suffered a back injury on the hands of Rusev as reported earlier. But it also said that he is all set to defend his US title against the Bulgarian Brute on this Sunday at the Extreme Rules, Pay-per-view. Kalisto has won the US championship belt back at the Royal Rumble PPV from Alberto Del Rio and went on to defend it on multiple occasions against Del Rio, Ryback etc. On the other hand, Rusev won the title opportunity to fight the Champion by winning a 20-man Battle Royal on RAW a few weeks ago.
On the verge of the masked Luchador’s title defense, the quite interesting news is coming regarding his future according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter which says that some backstage talk was going on among the officials who suggested finding a woman wrestler to team up with Kalisto. According to wrestlingINC.com, the newly formed team will face the team of Rusev and Lana, in the near future.
The sole reason behind this is to put over Lana as a female wrestler. She was basically hired by WWE as a wrestler but due to some legit injuries, her character was limited to her on-screen manager role. Now, that she had recovered from those injuries, she is wrestling more frequently at live events and apparently wants to keep her going with the in-ring actions. We have seen her performing in the 10 Divas tag team Wrestlemania match. Though she had not been in action on Raw or Smackdown since then, she was seen performing at the live events on multiple occasions.
Last week we saw Lana debuting on WWE NXT Friday’s live event in Lakeland, Florida. She teamed up with Mandy Rose to take on the team of Carmella and Daria Berenato which ended in a losing effort.
