Backstage Talk on Lana’s Injury Statement, More on WWE Reaction to Wrestlers and Illegal Streams


– We noted on Monday that there was a negative internal WWE reaction to wrestlers publicly asking for illegal UFC pay-per-view streams on Twitter this past weekend, not because it was UFC but because it hurts WWE’s business as well. In an update, apparently the wrestlers seen doing this were from the indies and one works for Lucha Underground but they were not named. It was noted to Bryan Alvarez of by a WWE source that the wrestlers likely “lost any chance” to ever be noticed by WWE.

– Yesterday we posted Lana’s statement on her training injury and comments about how she wanted to make the WWE fans proud. She said, “Every since I have debuted in @wwe I have continued to go to @wwenxt & come hours early before live events to train & learn how to fight.”

Bryan Alvarez noted yesterday that a WWE source contacted him and said Lana hasn’t been seen at the WWE Performance Center in “forever.” If she and Rusev are still together offscreen, they live in Nashville. It’s also worth noting that we rarely, if ever, hear about Lana being at a NXT live event these days. It is possible that Lana was just working a “training storyline” but we don’t know for sure.
