Rusev and Lana debuted in WWE back in 2013. Since their NXT scene, they have been pitted together to act like a foreign couple. Rusev is from Bulgaria and that helps in foreigner gimmick whereas Lana belongs to Gainesville, Florida. But, she does have fluent Russian accent to become a perfect partner for Rusev.

Their on-screen relationship has gone to be real after started dating from 2014 onwards. The couple finally got hitched last year. The storyline around them in WWE has always portrayed them as a couple. But, a change might be in store for them in the near future.
WWE creative has made them a part of the Superstar Shakeup process despite their absence before Wrestlemania. Rusev had undergone a shoulder surgery and will be out of action until May. Since Lana was attached to her husband, she really had no business on television, either.

But, in the meantime, she started training hard to get her own position on the women’s roster and probably going to get so, soon. According to the latest reports from Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the creative wants to give them a fresh look upon their arrival on WWE TV. Hence, they are probably started performing separately.

The hint was given by WWE when Rusev and Lana were shifted to Smackdown Live, separately and not as a couple. On the same episode of April 11th, a new vignette featuring Lana went on air indicating that she might be debuting as a female competitor in the women’s division.
The gimmick that will be given to Lana might be that one of a Cabaret Dancer. This will help her to start her first solo run on the main roster. Previously, she made her in-ring debut at WrestleMania 32. Since then, she had undergone a lot of training sessions to perform inside the squared circle.

In a recent interview, the Ravishing Russian also said that she intends to become the Women’s champion, one day. These were her comments:
“I love my job and I love that I can work with Rusev–but I will go after that championship when the time is right. Those things don’t happen overnight–but when I step into that ring, I will be great.
Just like when I’m on the mic, I know I can turn that whole crowd, that’s how I’m gonna be in the ring. I’m training, and I go to NXT to get my fix, but I’m slow and steady. This is a marathon, not a sprint.”
