Once Rusev made his return to WWE television, many fans were wondering why Lana wasn’t with him at ringside as they were previously paired together before the married couple took time off earlier this year.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the reason Lana hasn’t been around with Rusev is because WWE has other ideas for Lana’s character.
It was made it clear that this isn’t a situation where WWE doesn’t want to use her or anything like that.
As of this writing, there’s no word yet on what WWE has planned for Lana. She was last seen on television during the o April 23 post-Shakeup SmackDown episode.
Rusev made his return on the September 16th episode of Monday Night Raw in Knoxville, Tennessee at the Thompson-Boling Arena when he beat Mike Kanellis in a quick match.
Rusev also worked a squash match this past Monday night on Raw when he beat EC3.
