Lana started out her career in WWE as Rusev’s manager and still is in that role today. But at WrestleMania 32 she made her much anticipated in-ring debut in a 10 Woman tag team match. After that she hasn’t wrestled another match on WWE TV.

After WrestleMania Lana participated in a few live shows in tag team matches. She even did a few live shows for NXT. But a few weeks after WrestleMania was over, Lana returned to her role as just a manager.

Lana is being featured on Total Divas this season as well. Here fans have had the chance to see Lana training and performing during and after WrestleMania. Maybe we’ll soon see why she stopped performing at all WWE Shows.


Recent news shows that Lana wrestled at a few NXT shows this week. Debuting with new in-ring attire, a new entrance and a better ring presence. This is the first time Lana has wrestled for WWE since the spring.

Could this be a permanent return to the ring for Lana? Is she more than a manager? Does she have what it takes to be a WWE Women’s Superstar? Let me know in the comments!
