Lana posted a photo on her Instagram account, thanking Natalya for many things, including training her in the ring, texting her while she has been injured, and for being a positive influence on the Divas Revolution.
This was the beginning of our friendship @natbynature ! Maybe I was cold in the beginning but it's just because I am cautious & takes me awhile to open up & let people in. You have taught me so much about the #wrestling business. I am so grateful that you would come early to live events to get in the ring and train me and take your time to teach me how to #wrestle. You were patient with me and you are one of the few people that have texted me everyday since I have been injured. This means the world to me. #Thankyou for being a friend, a #mentor & a #rolemodel to me. Thank you for helping start the #divasrevolution before it even was a #trend. #ThankyouNattie for everything you have given to me, women & @WWE
Lana has been out of action for about a month, due to a wrist injury that she suffered while training to compete in a WWE ring. She had been most recently involved in a storyline with Dolph Ziggler, Rusev and Summer Rae.
Natalya has recently returned to WWE programming as a member of the Divas Revolution. After Paige turned her back on team PCB, Natalya has emerged to take her place, and perhaps start a feud with Paige.
