• Lana Isn’t Happy With WWE’s Marketing Team
One way or another, “The Ravishing Russian” Lana finds her way into the news every week.
WWE just released the poster for the Money In The Bank 2020 pay-per-view, and Lana certainly isn’t happy about it.
This year’s poster for the event features numerous wrestlers, but Lana and his kayfabe husband Bobby Lashley have been left out of it. This didn’t sit well with her, which is why she took to Twitter to rip on WWE’s marketing team.
Below is what Lana posted on Twitter:
“I really question the entire existence of WWE marketing team. In this poster MY Bobby isn’t in here and ME …. L.A.N.A isn’t in here! Everything that MY BOBBY & I do is ratings even when we don’t try! And when we try WE BREAK the internet! And trend for an entire week!”

Although Lana and her husband have had some problems between them recently, The Ravishing Russian still didn’t leave the side of her husband, and supported him on social media.
