Lana and Rusev (Miro) were one of WWE’s power couples for a long time, but now that they’ve both been released by the promotion, they’re free to talk about how hard it was to be a couple in a company like WWE.
Appearing on the latest episode of Talk is Jericho, Lana claimed that she was immediately removed from TV for three months after a photo of her and Rusev getting engaged was leaked to TMZ.
“I didn’t even put up a picture, I just sent it to my friends. And then I guess someone leaked it. I never, ever put it up. TMZ got a hold of it. Basically TMZ said we were engaged and so the story got cut and we got blamed for it. Personally, I got blamed. It’s insane.
“I got in trouble for that. I wasn’t on television for three months. And I was on television straight for two years. I was made to feel it was all my fault. I had to take the blame. And for years I thought maybe it was my fault. For years. And then we did the Bobby Lashley story and I had given Vince my word that I would not take a picture with someone I am feuding with, or send it to anyone. If I take it it’s not leaving my phone. And I gave him my word that I’m not going to do that anymore. So my word is all that I have.”
Lana and Rusev were feuding on TV at the time of their real life engagement, which is why WWE had such a negative reaction to the whole thing.
