• “Please pray for me, my mental health is doing really bad, I’m really depressed. I can’t take it anymore” – RAW Wrestler
During a new WWE Chronicle episode focusing on RAW Superstar Lana, The Ravishing Russian opened up about facing depression this year.
Below are the highlights:
On being away from Rusev:
“It’s been really hard. Not having 300 days on the road, being at home, then all of a sudden no fans. Then, of course, like being with the person from the very beginning, like traveling with that person, being literally 24/7, being with that person and then that person is not there, it’s really hard. I don’t even know how sometimes I keep on pushing through.”

On fans being mean to her on Social Media:
“For me, what was really, really hard was, usually going to arenas and people boo you, it’s something about the energy, you’re like, ‘oh, I’m in control of this,’ right?
But then when all of a sudden I don’t interact with any people whatsoever and I’m just at home and I post something and everyone is just so mean. I couldn’t handle it anymore, because that’s like my only interaction with human beings is my Instagram account or Twitter, and now everyone in comments are like, ‘you should be fired. Why are you not fired? You suck. You’re this. You’re that.’
I remember, texting my parents and being like, ‘please pray for me, my mental health is doing really bad, I’m really depressed. I just — I can’t take it anymore. I’m just…I’m so sad. Like, I don’t want to do anything.’
Like, why even try? Why? It doesn’t matter. You work hard. You do this like you can’t post because everyone is going to tell you to go jump off a cliff and kill yourself and like you’re worth nothing. So it’s like, well, why?”
