In the Pay-Per-View (PPV) of the Survivor Series and in the last episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE seems to have completely changed its attitude towards the wrestler Lana. In the last period there had been several criticisms for the choice of the federation of Vince McMahon to penalize the girl, crashed on the table by Nia Jax for nine times in the last weeks, to the point that the WWE Universe and in general on the network were born some conjectures with which it was said that Vince McMahon wanted to "punish" the girl for hitting her partner Miro, guilty of having started a new adventure in All Elite Wrestling.
In these last two nights, the WWE has however enhanced the figure of the Ravishing Russian, who came out as the last survivor of the Survivor Series and also protagonist in the last episode of Raw paired with the female champion Asuka.
The two have beaten the duo champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler and who knows that this may not lead to new future ideas."
Vince Russo on what WWE are trying to do with Lana
In the latest episode of Legion of Raw, Dr.
Chris Featherstone spoke to former WWE writer Vince Russo and the two talked about Lana's situation and what WWE wants to do with her. "I just think they're trying to make her as stupid as possible. This stuff pops them.
They think it's funny and it pops them, and it's a game. I'll tell you exactly what's going on behind the scenes. They're trying to break her, that's exactly what they're doing. She's married to a wrestler Rusev (Miro in AEW) who knows exactly what they're trying to do.
So, Rusev is there saying 'don't sell this, act like this is the greatest storyline you've ever been in and you can't wait to go through the next table.' The first time they (Nia Jax) put Lana through a table that's how she put it over online - 'oh, I've always dreamed of going through a table'
So that's the mind game... this will continue - the more she doesn't sell, the more hell bent they will get on getting her to sell. She's married to a wrestler who knows the game and he's saying, 'no matter, when they give you your marching orders on Monday you tell them how great it is and you can't wait to go out there and do it' because that pis*es them off more than anything."
Russo then concluded by stating that there's a lot of valuable television time that's being wasted with this angle. Lana teamed up with RAW Women's Champion Asuka to face WWE Women's Tag Team champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler in a non-title match, which the former won.
