WWE to break up a wrestling couple

Apr 20, 2017 - by Steve Gerweck

The Wrestling Oberver is reporting that WWE plans to break up Lana and Rusev as an on-screen duo because they feel they need another “hot girl” in the mix due to Eva Marie leaving and Emmalina being a flopped storyline. The company is already testing out a dancing gimmick for her at NXT house shows.

    Overheard at a WWE booking meeting:

    “Hey guys, Rusev and Lana are over with the crowd and get massive heat, what should we do with them?

    “I have the perfect idea, break them up and give Lana the gimmick that keeps failing because the crowd don’t like it…..that should work.”

    “Great Idea!!!!”

    I think Lana could be cast as a janitor and make the role look good. Lana’s career isn’t advancing being in Rusev’s corner. She can wrestle. Rusev doesn’t need anyone in his corner as he does perfectly fine on his own. Time for Lana to fly solo and see where it takes her. I have no problem with this decision.

    I feel bad for Lana and Rusev, they’re so good together and WWE just refuses to let it happen.

    Drop her accent…sure….but don’t break up a good thing just because you need someone….you have a whole developmental pool of bimbos!

    Captain Ass hit the finger nail right on its head.

    The best idea they had was Enzo thinking he had it made with Lana then Rusev beating the brakes off him. So Make it where other Superstars, refs, commentators disrespect or make a play at Lana and Rusev ends up having to smash them to preserve her honor great idea. Basically Lana would be doing this only gain some power on the brand

    if Rusev needs anyone in his corner, it should be someone like a Paul Heyman…..someone that can work as an old school manager. doesn’t need to be Heyman, specifically. not sure if Rusev really needs a manager.

    just let Rusev be a bad ass who’s willing to throw down at the drop of a dime.

    Lana doesn’t need to be someone that appears on TV just for the sake of being hot. she can take on any number of roles while still looking hot. she could have the gorgeous business woman character that’s capable of outthinking and out witting people. since she’s trained to wrestle, she doesn’t need to relegated to being a valet.

    I just hope she drops the accent.
