Lana has developed a pretty entertaining character on-screen. Although her union with Rusev seems to be over (on television), her partnership with Tamina is just beginning.
Total Divas has given fans a chance to see what Lana is like behind closed doors where people call her “CJ” and she doesn’t have a Russain accent. She’s been fortunate enough to forge some fantastic friendships and fans on the popular E! reality show.
But it turns out Nikki Bella was able to be much more than just another costar for Lana as The Ravishing Russain recently attributed the continuation of her WWE career to Nikki Bella.
“Nikki has helped me so, so, so much,” Lana said to E! Online. “There have been times in my wrestling journey—and you’re going to see this on the show—when I’ve gotten discouraged because the success doesn’t come overnight. It’s a lot of getting in there and failing. She was really the person that kept on encouraging me not to give up, to be resilient, to be brave and to have courage. At times, I would think maybe I shouldn’t continue to pursue my dream of competing in that ring, but she kept on telling me not to give up and keep on training. I wouldn’t be where I am now if it wasn’t for Nikki Bella.”
It’s pretty cool Nikki Bella was able to lend a helping hand and an ear to Lana. This only illustrates Nikki’s passion for the future of WWE because Lana really does have bright future in sports entertainment. Especially if she keeps up at this pace.
