Why Wasn’t Lana with Rusev on Thursday’s WWE SmackDown and This Weekend’s WWE Live Events?

Mar 15, 2015 - by Marc Middleton

– We noted last week that WWE was teasing tension between Lana and WWE United States Champion Rusev after she accepted John Cena’s WrestleMania 31 challenge for Rusev.

Lana did not appear on SmackDown with Rusev and is not appearing at this weekend’s WWE live events with him because she’s filming WWE Studios’ action-thriller Interrogation with WWE Hall of Famer Edge. WWE is using the tension between she and Rusev to explain her absence. One rumored theory going around is that she will stay off TV until WrestleMania 31, where she will return to bring Rusev “support” for his match against Cena in the form of the grand entrance that we reported on in a spoiler post earlier this week.

Edge tweeted the following on Saturday, the first day of filming:
