    Lana broke down, then lashed out after a rough night on SmackDown

    Look...I know not everyone can be A.J Styles or Sasha Banks in the ring...
    I know all wrestlers have their strengths and weaknesses and should be
    booked in matches that will best allow them to use their skills to the best
    of their abilities.

    But I'm a little concerned about "The Lana Situation"

    Now I've made it no secret in the past that I'm a big fan of both Rusev & Lana
    and especially with their past "Rocky 4" inspired but outdated gimmick.

    Now I've read a lot of rumors about backstage heat on both Rusev & Lana...
    mostly stemming back from their engagement during that awful couples
    feud with Dolph Ziggler & Summer Rae...and most recently with Rusev
    cutting his hair off without alerting creative he was doing so.

    I mean its not hard to believe that Rusev has pissed someone off as his
    booking has been a complete train wreck basically since his feud with
    Roman Reigns last year.

    I mean Rusev lost to the Big Show at Fastlane...remember that? I mean
    I know we are all trying hard to forget Fastlane was even an event...but
    it did happen.

    Now I guess if the WWE wants to book Rusev to be defeated and possibly
    squashed every week...that's fine...Rusev is a fantastic worker and while he
    may-be slightly injury prone...he can handle whatever the WWE throws at him.

    Lana on the other hand...well...its a different story.

    Now I respect Lana for putting in the work to become a full time in-ring performer
    and she no doubt has a great look and solid mic skills...but putting Lana in the
    ring with women like Charlotte, Becky Lynch, Natalya and Naomi just seems...
    cruel to me.

    Now I know they may-be trying to tell some kind of story with Lana and Tamina...
    and it may also be the original story that they intended to tell with Eva Marie
    or Emmalina (although Emma can actually wrestle) but Lana just isn't ready
    for the main roster.

    She seems very awkward in the ring and frankly...she looks kind of flimsy...
    at least she does when compared to the other women on the roster.

    I understand that many female WWE performers have been elevated to the
    main roster before they were seemingly ready (Dana Brooke, Nia Jax, Carmella
    & Alexa Bliss...although Alexa definitely tried to prove everyone wrong) but
    with Lana...I just worry that the WWE may still have some kind of vendetta
    against her and this entire "story line" with Tamina may just be another way
    for the WWE to punish her and Rusev as a couple.

    The other problem I have with Lana being used the way she well...she
    is taking a spot that could easily filled by someone else...someone with better
    in-ring skills that could easily play the "Sexy Femme Fatale" character they

    I'm just going to place this photo of Peyton Royce & Billie Kay here...


    In fact why did the WWE waste all their time and effort with that Emmalina
    bullshit when they had 2 sexy Aussies in NXT who could have played that
    role perfectly?

    Am I insane?

    I mean its not like either woman is going to get a run with the NXT
    women's why not promote them instead of having Lana
    look incredibly awkward and unprepared for the main roster.

    I'm not saying Lana shouldn't be wrestling...I just think she should
    not be wrestling on the main roster right now.

    What are your thoughts? Leave your comments, views and opinions
    below and I'll see you all around the traps.

  2. Lana is being booked like the new Eva. She is suposta be horrible. She knows how to wrestle decently. She isn't as horrible as she is playing on.

  3. I don't think anyone should be booked as "the new Eva"

    Well...I don't want to watch women wrestling horribly...

    I hope you're right Snake...and not to sound
    like a do you know this?
  4. Don't get worked broski, she's greener than a thicc vegan smoothie. They should've kept her in the PC for a while longer and called up someone who could actually wrestle.

  5. Wait...Snake...are playing head games with me?

    I prefer the term "Greener than Turtle Shit" but yeah...same thing...

    Exactly...Peyton Royce & Billie Kay could have debuted
    during the Superstar Shake Up and the entire division
    would have stronger for it.

  6. She isn't horrible, certainly far from the worst they have had. Should she have stayed in NXT longer? Yes but they pushed her for the sake of her promo skills and Rusev. Even though they basically wiped the ropes with Ru Ru... Them monsters.

    I would be a lonely lesbian.. I don't think she is "hot". I find most of the women in the WWE to be basic and just slapped full of make-up and fake hair. I don't consider them to be breath takingly beautiful or anything. Most look average. Including Lana. Then again, I think the same of the men and I am straight so... I am a picky person. No wonder people compare me to a cat. I am not sure where I was going with this...

    Oh! A KITTEN!

  10. So...we agree then?

    Snake...I'm not upset...I'm just disappointed...

  11. My taste in beauty, not yours. No judgment on you. :kitler:

    And yeah... I guess so. Should have left a few others there longer too... *glares at Bayley*

    I mean...yeah...sure...I can except that...

    I don't know about Bayley...but definitely Dana Brooke, Nia Jax & Carmella...

    Alexa Bliss has been solid...even if I am sick of her...

  13. Bayley needs halp. SOS! SOS!

    But I agree with the others... Specially Banana Drookes and Caramel

  14. Well...the WWE is trying to dig her up after burying her...

    I'm guessing Sasha said something the creative team
    didn't like again. I've heard that happens on the regular.

    Also...perhaps Alexa Bliss didn't want to fight Sasha again...

    Apparently Sasha has a history of "hurting" Alexa in their
    past matches (NXT and at GBOF...and it always seems to
    be Alexa's nose) and Sasha has repeatedly told Alexa to
    "Eat some concrete and harden up Princess"

    Just what I have heard around the traps...

    That would be their Ice Cream flavors...Banana Brooks and Caramella...

    But Carmella has shown her true talent these last few weeks...

    She can carry a briefcase...

  16. Cruel would be asking her to work commentary with JBL and Jerry Lawler at the same time.

    Cruel would be leaving her alone in a room with Mark Henry when he hasn't eaten in three days.

    Cruel would be requiring her to be Dixie Carter's business assistant for no more than sixty minutes.

    Lana is working us. She'll be signing autographs again before the week is out.

  18. Sounds like you're a lady who does a solid job of looking pretty stuck in a world where one gender cares too much about looking good and gets all super artificial while the other doesn't care enough, so you're mostly all alone! :why:
