Born into a wealthy Russian family, Lana’s neighbors were ex-presidents, diplomats and other powerful political figures. Fulfilling her desire to pursue a stateside education, Lana attended Florida State University, where she not only learned English but also majored in Foreign Affairs, Business and Social Media Marketing.
Encouraged by her parents to discover an investment hobby, Lana invested her knowledge and business acumen into Rusev. Living by the philosophy that no mountain is too high to climb, Lana plans to use her smarts to conquer WWE.
Lana has been in the realms of popular culture for longer than you might have thought. Her name was well established in the modeling, singing and acting sectors before she joined WWE in 2013.
