The WWE are always coming up with new and weird ways to elevate storylines and characters on Monday Night RAW and SmackDown.

And the United States Championship feud between Kalisto and Rusev - who will be fighting this Sunday at Extreme Rules - and it seems like the WWE are deciding on a way to even the playing ground for Kalisto.

A possibility that has emerged in some reports is that the WWE creative team are going to pair Kalisto up with a female wrestler in order to take on Rusev and Lana.

According to this week's issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, written by respected wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, there have been talks of getting Kalisto a new partner, a female one. Bye bye, Sin Cara.

The thinking behind this is that the new team of Kalisto and mystery woman will face Rusev and Lana in mixed tag team matches, something the WWE haven't done for a few years.

Part of this is to bring Lana back into the equation more, as she has been working on improving her in-ring skills in the past months to actually become a wrestler.

Lana has been wrestling more frequently at live events in case the idea transpires, giving her as much in-ring time as possible to try and hone her craft.

Lana made her NXT in-ring debut at last Friday's show in Lakeland, Florida. Teaming with Mandy Rose, the blonde bombshells lost to Carmella and Daria Berenato.

This isn't the first time that the WWE have had a crazy idea to do with Kalisto. Rumours abounded that when he was about to be called up from NXT, the former 'Samuray Del Sol' was going to be given the gimmick of a gay hairdresser. Yep.

Surprisingly, that didn't happen and we didn't end up with Rico Constantino 2.0 on the main roster.

So, who could come up and become Kalisto's new partner? 

Well, I think we would have to go to NXT to find someone. Bayley might be a bit too much of a big name to come in like that, while Asuka, Nia Jax, Eva Marie, Carmella and Alexa Bliss can all be ruled out as well.

That leaves us with the newer names, who are pretty much unknown - apart from Adrienne Reese and Nicola Glencross - who had success on the indies. 

If this idea does go through, and at the moment it looks like a real possibility, it will certainly be interesting to see how the WWE does it.
