WWE News: Rusev And Lana Will Not Appear On Total Divas Next Season
Rusev and Lana are not having a good time both on and off-screen, as per the recent reports. Their career is not up to any significant level on Smackdown Live despite the popularity. Now they have lost the most lucrative TV deal of Total Divas. This is bound to make an impact on their status as reality TV stars in months to follow.
Reports are available on the internet suggesting that Rusev and Lana will not appear in the next season of Total Divas. The officials of E Network have decided to opt them out of the star-cast terminating their contract. This happened courtesy of various reasons. But mostly, they were not fit enough to continue as a couple alongside others.
Rusev and Lana appeared on the “Chasing Glory” Podcast with former WWE ring announcer Lillian Garcia. They talked about a number of topics including Total Divas. During the second portion of the show, Lana revealed that they are no longer a part of the hit reality TV show. This did come as a huge shocker for the show’s fans.
As reported by wrestlingnews.co, the ‘focus groups’ of the show is not liking them anymore. Their attitude, particularly Lana’s might have been unbearable to some of them leading the couple to hot water. We have seen hee throwing tantrums in the bygone episodes of Total Divas. Apparently, there’s some actual truth to her behavior than the on-screen character.
“There are so many things in the edit that I was royally screwed over,” Lana said. “They take someone saying something from one thing and put it there. In edit, they can do whatever they want and that’s out of your control. If they want to make me more annoying and I have to play that annoying girl, they’ll do that.”
Rusev and Lana have entered the WWE scene in 2012 and started dating each other in 2013. They got imported to the main roster from NXT in 2014 continuing their relationship. In August 2016, they decided to tie the knot which also marked their debuting year in Total Divas. Since then, they have been a regular name in this E Network drama.
But the bygone 8th season might have been the last time that we have seen this couple on E Network TV. Total Divas will definitely return with the next series but we are yet to find out a schedule of the same. Hopefully, the show hosts have already found out the replacements for Rusev and Lana whom we could start seeing when the show returns.
