Fan favourite Lana has responded to harsh fan criticism saying she is only liked for her looks, by sticking up for other non-wrestling WWE personnel too.
Lana has been part of the main roster in the WWE since debuting alongside Rusev, who she was managing at the time. Since then, she has become The Ravishing Russian, known for her good looks and her superb speeches and promos.
With the right teaching, she could develop herself into one of the best female managers of all-time and also put herself up there with the likes of Paul Heyman in the way she delivers promos.

However, not every fan in the WWE Universe adores her. Some even go as far as saying they won’t like her until she actually steps into the ring for a wrestling match herself. This is what one fan had to say about her on her Instagram according to WrestlingInc.
She said: "Lana do you find it awkward how many people only like you because they think you're hot rather than enjoy your character? And that we've yet to see you do anything to give yourself a legacy but that's all you ever post about?
“I think your character seems a sweet woman but until you wrestle I don't see how anyone can adore you other than how you look because like we don't see much of your character other than your character escaping a toxic relationship and growing stronger and more confident."
The Ravishing Russian then responded with one of the best answers I have ever seen.
She said: "Awkward no I find it exceptionally awesome what I do. Are you saying Paul Heyman hasn't created one of the most epic legacies? He will be remembered more than 98% of women and men that ever wrestled in WWE. How about Stephanie McMahon? She picked wisely when to wrestle and when not to wrestle. I am not here to be adored I am here to help create compelling stories.
“I don't have to fight and wrestle every day because I am that good at what I do. This is WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and I bring the BIG E to the WWE. And thank you, if I can help one person stand up for themselves & leave a toxic relationship, then my story is more then worthwhile. Thank you."
A strong and true statement, from a strong and powerful woman.
