Arn Anderson stated that Vince McMahon was furious upon learning about the relationship.
Vince McMahon on Rusev and Lana
"Oh yeah, it was pretty tense. It was one of those things where they're trying to pitch a storyline on TV but it gets exposed, and it's just that.
It's hard for me to actually even have an opinion, because the minute I go old school and go, 'they shouldn't have done that', then entire companies or groups of people are exposing the business on the other side of the tracks.
So, I don't know what to think to be honest with you," said Anderson. Back when Rusev and Lana announced their engagement, the duo was involved in an angle with Dolph Ziggler and Summer Rae. Lana and Rusev went on to reference their engagement on WWE TV.
At that time Rusev and Lana were engaged in an Angle with Dolph Ziggler and Summer Rae and the two wrestlers also often referred to their relationship during TV broadcasts. Additionally, the WWE Universe was on the couple's side when they officially announced the engagement.
Vince McMahon represents the product of an era when wrestlers did everything to keep the Keyfabe. In recent days, Rusev has probably been the protagonist of the main news concerning the wrestling world: with his real name Miro (diminutive of the real name) he landed in All Elite Wrestling becoming yet another former WWE wrestler to land in this new federation.
After Luke Harper aka Brodie Lee, after the FTR which in WWE were the Revival and after Matt Cardona, who was called Zack Ryder by the McMahons, Miro (aka, Rusev) is the new wrestler to debut in the company of Tony Khan.
During the episode of his debut Miro did not forget to throw small digs at his former federation. It was a different situation for his partner Lana who continues to work in WWE and has recently been involved in a plot with her friend Natalya.
The WWE Universe seemed to be on the couple's side when they allegedly received heat for announcing the engagement, with many stating that keeping kayfabe alive in today's times is incredibly hard, thanks to social media.
Vince McMahon is a product of a time when wrestlers used to go to great lengths to keep kayfabe alive, and he himself rarely breaks character when on WWE TV.
