The rumor mills have been buzzing for quite sometime now as far as what would happen should Lana and the Bulgarian born-Russian turned Rusev separate and go down different paths. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter may have the answer to that question.
It was reported on April 30 on cagesideseats.com that WWE wants to possibly make Lana the female face of World Wrestling Entertainment.
The plan is to start once there is a complete face turn on Lana. This would very much separate the duo. Fans have been seeing this gradual face turn take place since WrestleMania 31 with the crowd chants of “we want Lana” being heard every time she is not present at Rusev’s matches.
Fans have also been witnessing Lana on the short end of the stick with Rusev berating her for accepting John Cena’s original proposal for the match at Mania, yelling at her at Extreme Rules for loving the adulation of the fans, etc.
The separation is inevitable as far as stories are concerned. But what is to happen with Lana? Vince McMahon has stars and dollars in his eyes when he sees Lana. He wants to make her megastar. Could he make her a bigger star than the Bella Twins?
Either way, Lana going solo will be a fantastic move. We know she can perform on the mic, but does she possess the physical skills needed to perform in the ring if need be? It does need to be noted that Lana has never wrestled for WWE and honestly there is no way to know whether or not she would possess the skills needed to be a performer.
Anything is possible
The possibilities are endless. She is an incredible personality with much potential. Cameron had little to no skill before becoming who she is, whereas, Eva Marie never had the time to hone her craft due to a couple of surgeries. Now, she is getting trained by an amazing talent like Brian Kendrick. Lana is an accomplished actress who is awesome on the mic. With a few months of training, who knows what could happen.
With some of the divas from NXT almost ready to move up to the main roster, A.J. Lee retiring, and the Bella's possibly moving on from wrestling in the near future, the WWE will need a new female face to represent the company, that face will be Lana.
