• Lana Reveals Rusev Is Getting Cheered
During a recent interview with Hollywood life, Lana talked about her husband Rusev and the ‘Rusev Day’ chants gaining popularity, if she enjoyed feuding with Rusev and Daniel Bryan coming back.
Below are the highlights:
On her husband Rusev and the ‘Rusev Day’ chants gaining popularity:
“I think he is a super athlete and I have been saying that for years. I would introduce him as a super athlete and he truly is one of the best in ring competitors. I also think in Total Divas, he also showed that he is really funny and entertaining. On the show, he shows that he has a great personality.
I think it took – instead of a ‘U-S-A’ chant, they want to be part of something more. They want to chant ‘Rusev Day’ because every day is Rusev day!”
On if she enjoyed feuding with Rusev:
“Oh yeah! I really enjoy being his enemy. One of my favorite stories in WWE was when he was the jealous boyfriend and I used Dolph Ziggler as revenge, basically. That was so much fun. We had so much fun with that story when we were fighting and our segments on TV would be so much fun. I would love to be in a story or movie where maybe we were enemies.”
On Daniel Bryan coming back:
“We are so excited. We are so excited to have him back. I know for me, personally, I was in tears when he did his speech on coming back because it gives me hope that no matter what anyone says, I am going to continue for my dreams and continue to wrestle and compete. The world told him ‘no,’ and that he would never wrestle again and he is wrestling again. So, I think that gives us all hope to be resilient and to do you no matter what!”
• WWE Working The Fans By Teasing A Major Shocker For WrestleMania 34
The Smoothie King Center in New Orleans will host next week’s post-WrestleMania 34 episode of SmackDown Live and the arena is advertising the following two matches:
– AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Championship
– Charlotte Flair vs. Carmella for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
This has begun speculation that either Charlotte Flair is going to defeat Asuka to end the undefeated streak and retain the SmackDown Women’s Championship or Carmella is going to cash-in her Money in the Bank contract and walk out of WrestleMania 34 as the new champion.
To add to this speculation, Asuka is being advertised to face Nia Jax at Raw Live Events in May (which would mean that Asuka is going to lose at WrestleMania 34 and then stay on Raw).
However, that’s not the case. Asuka is still planned to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship this Sunday at WrestleMania 34 and these advertised matches for upcoming shows are subject to change.
