There seems to be a change happening with the Lana character. As many of you saw on this week’s Smackdown Live, Lana scored her first singles match victory and qualified for the Women’s Money in The Bank Ladder match.
After her victory, Dasha Fuentes interviewed her in a backstage segment for WWE.com and several readers have picked up that she went in and out of her Russian accent.
Actually, she’s been doing that for a few weeks but it was definitely more noticeable this week. Is WWE slowly dropping the Russian part of her character or was this just a slip-up? I don’t know but the last word on Lana was that WWE wanted to have her and Rusev turn on Aiden English and they wanted to get rid of the comedic elements of their characters so they could go back to how they used to be during their early days on the main roster. I guess we’ll know more in the coming weeks.
Check out the video below and you’ll notice the Russian accent dropped during the first few seconds.
