Lana suffered what is said to be a very real injury to her wrist last week and has since been written off TV for what could be up to four months after successful surgery.
The problem is, in the statement that Lana released about her injury she stated that she had been training really hard, both the Performance Centre and before NXT live events, so that she was ready for her WWE debut.
That claim has now been thrown into doubt. Aource close to WWE has stated, via Sports Kings, that Lana hasn't been to the Performance Centre in "forever" and doesn't attend NXT live events. So has she been caught in her own lie?

IS LANA'S INJURY A WORK?
This was the thought when Lana first announced that she had been injured, but the problem is, what would WWE gain from keeping her out of action for four months?
Lana and Summer Rae were set to be a part of a mixed tag match with Rusev and Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam, but apparently Lana wasn't medically cleared for action so this match was unable to go ahead.
Is Lana injured in a way WWE didn't want to announce? There is a lot of confusion surrounding Lana and right now anything is possible.
She posted a video to her Facebook account earlier today that showed her following surgery to the injured wrist so from the outside it looks like it could be a legit injury.
A few months ago WWE staged JBL in hospital to sell his injury from Brock Lesnar, so a work is still not completely out of the question.
LANA'S WWE FUTURE?
Lana and Summer Rae have set up a very good storyline for both divas going forward so it makes no sense that WWE would take her out of action if there wasn't a valid reason.
Dolph Ziggler's rivalry with Rusev will be over before she returns because it has reached a stage in their feud where fans just don't care that much about it. The rematch at Night of Champions between the two should hopefully be the end of it which means Lana can't continue the feud when she returns,
This could end up being a blessing in disguise because this had turned into a high school fight between two girls over one guy and hopefully that will now be scrapped, so who knows what Lana will be walking back into in a few months time?
Do you think Lana's injury is a work? Why would she lie about her training? Have your say in the comments section below...
