WWE: Plans for Lana face turn as break up with Rusev nears

Published 5 Comments

Football News

Rusev has been like a human wrecking ball ever since his debut on the main roster in WWE almost a year ago, and many believe female accomplice Lana is one of the biggest reasons for his success. 

The Bulgarian Brute may be able to back it all up in the ring, but it's Lana that keeps most of his rivalries going with her incredible promo ability. 

Role change?

New plans for Lana have leaked this week that see WWE breaking her away from her real life boyfriend, though, and allowing her to turn face and become what is described as "the female face of the company."

There were many rumors surrounding this that claimed Lana would also be changing her name and could go by her real name, C.J, and it will also be revealed that she is in fact American as a way to turn her completely face with the crowd. 

There is no news yet on who she will be aligned with instead or if she will be handed the Raw General Manager role, much like AJ Lee before her. This would allow her to train herself up in the ring whilst remaining on TV. 

Lana and Rusev are currently described as "in the middle" of their intended break up as the tensions between the two continue to rise. 

Break up

At Extreme Rules Rusev sent Lana backstage because the fans were chanting for her and not him, before he then forced her to go to The Authority and request an "I Quit" match with John Cena at Payback because he had failed to win the Russian Chain Match. 

Raw then showed Rusev sending Lana backstage once more and delivering his own promo to John Cena after he took out Heath Slater and ruined Cena's US Title Challenge.

The tension between the two has led to fans speculating that Lana is set to turn on Rusev and it could be as early as during the Payback pay-per-view, where she could cost Rusev the United States Championship.

This is currently just speculation as the Cena/Rusev saga looks to have finally reached the end and should hopefully play out at Payback. All that is known for sure is that Lana is set to be leaving the employment of Rusev and is turning face, so one of the best female promo givers could be set to become a wrestler as well.

What do you think WWE fans? Is a Lana face turn a good idea? Let us know in the comments section below...
