Lana didn’t appear on WWE RAW this week just like a lot of WWE Superstars who weren’t able to make the show due to coronavirus issues, although it was planned. Vince McMahon also rewrote some parts of the script that didn’t require some superstars from the red brand. Lana’s absence is understandable as family members of her have been tested positive with Covid-19 in the recent past.
As reported previously, Lana’s husband Miro fka Rusev revealed that he has coronavirus. Additionally, both of her parents have also been dealing with coronavirus which she revealed via her social media account. Her mother was released from the ICU and is now at home recovering from the attack of the deadly virus.
Thus, WWE decided to keep Lana off Raw TV due to her possible contact with coronavirus. To date, there’s no confirmation on whether the Ravishing Russian has been tested positive or not. WWE hasn’t been releasing any information on the issue and they have also strictly forbidden their superstars to reveal positive test results, as well.
The general thinking is that Lana is still negative with the coronavirus who should be able to make a return to WWE television, soon once hee quarantine days are over. She was involved in a storyline with Natalya, that should kick-off as soon as she returns. The duo is continuing their program via Instagram eyeing a run with the Women’s Tag Team Championships as soon as they get back on TV.
It should be noted that Natalya is also absent from WWE Raw as his husband has reportedly been tested positive with the coronavirus.
Another member from WWE female roster, Billie Kay was not on the show, this week and some fans were concerned about her considering the current coronavirus pandemic that has caused a lot of people to miss work. The good thing is that she was busy doing business stuff, as clarified in a tweet.
One half of The IIconics member tweeted that ‘it’s none of our beeswax’ what kind of business she was getting into. Apparently, Billie was maintaining the IIconics global brand that has nothing to do with the coronavirus.
“Lucky @SamoaJoe is on #Raw & understands being an entrepreneur. The IIconics are a global brand mate… I’m taking care of other business so mind your own beeswax!!!”
Of course it’s not a problem… my life partner is ALWAYS IIconic 😘 https://t.co/IQHpZuhjRb

WWE Universe Twitter account also asked her if there would be a problem for Peyton Royce without her partner. But Billie Kay responded saying, “Of course it’s not a problem… my life partner is ALWAYS IIconic.”
However, in reality, Peyton came up short against Ruby Riott in a singles contest. Hopefully, the IIconics will be back on the winning track when Billie returns on TV, next week.
