WWE Universe’s favourite Rusev is no more with the WWE as the company released him from their contract on April 15. Due to the budget cuts cost by this Coronavirus pandemic, several superstars and many other talents lost their jobs in WWE, and Rusev was one of them. However, his wife Lana is still with WWE and decided to speak about her husband.
Lana dropped a new video on her official YouTube channel where she addressed her real-life husband’s WWE release. She started by cutting a promo on Rusev where she brought up so many different things including how Rusev bribed cops with t-shirts to keep her in jail in their residing town of Nashville, Tennessee.
Lana Opens Up On WWE Releasing Her Real-Life Husband Rusev
Clearly, she was in the kayfabe-mode who was talking about how fake police arrested her during one episode as she hit the police.
“What does the ravishing Russian Lana think about her ex-husband Rusev being fired,” Lana began. “Rusev is not exactly what you think he is. He has manipulated each and every single one of you fans. Why do you think I was taken to jail in Nashville? Why? Why do you think the cops in Nashville took me to jail? Because they were bribed by the Bulgarian Brute Rusev. Rusev Day. He bribed them. He bribed them with a bunch of t-shirts. He bribed them with a bunch of singy songy songs. Rusev finally shoed his true colors. Rusev’s probably celebrating right now.” (courtesy ringsidenews.com)
Lana kept her on-screen mode intact by saying that WWE Universe might be upset that Rusev got released. As per her, Rusev was leaving WWE, just like an actor leaving Grey’s Anatomy, but she now understands that it was a so frustrating experience.
“For all you guys crying right now and devastated, look I get it,” Lana continued. “I cry when I watch Grey’s Anatomy okay whenever my favorite character is either taken off the show, written off the show, or died on the show. I’m devastated, so I get what the WWE universe is feeling right now. They are devastated that so many of their favorite characters are not going to be on WWE programming anymore, and I know that Rusev, he was the no. 1 trend, or no. 2 trend. No. 2 globally and no. 1 in the USA trends or something crazy, I’m like ugh.”
For once, Lana then came out of her in-ring obnoxious character to talk something real nice about her husband Rusev with who her marriage is still very much intact despite the on-screen angle with Bobby Lashley. Lana said that he witnesses the rise of Rusev since 2013 when they were at NXT. This man is one tough dude who is slated to receive even bigger opportunity outside the WWE,
“I can assure all of you guys that, not like I’m talking to Rusev every day or something like that, but I can assure you that the man that I found in 2013 and in NXT discovered him. The man that climbed up the ladder in WWE, is made up of a lot.”
On TV, Lana and Bobby Lashley are going through a rough patch, as of late where Lashley is getting annoyed by Lana’s screamy tone. It might be the beginning phase that the relation starts to deteriorate.
The All-Mighty could soon be distancing himself from the Ravishing Russian since she provides a distraction. That doesn’t mean that Lana would be going away from WWE as the company locked her into a five-year contract, starting from late 2019.
