Over the past few months, WWE has been releasing a number of employees, including WWE Superstars, starting with the release of Superstars like Chelsea Green and Mickie James.
Last month, WWE held another round of cuts from the company and included a slew of big names like Braun Strowman and Lana. He was let go because of his lucrative contract with WWE, which Lana signed back in 2019.
while speaking talk is JerichoLana claimed that WWE had initially planned a table spot for her during last year’s Survivor Series pay-per-view. This must have seen Nia Jax putting another announcer through the table.
However, Roman Reigns did not want this to take place as his match against Drew McIntyre was going to involve the announcer’s table. Ultimately Roman Reigns got the spot that Lana was involved in, removed.
“We were supposed to do this whole table spot on the show. And then Roman didn’t want to, ’cause he had a table spot with (Drew McIntyre). So there was some big pushback. Samoa, Nia and Roman, you know , that whole thing. Like, oh my god I’m stuck in the middle of this drama. And so, we had a huge space. Like I was supposed to be left out at the very beginning. I had to get in the ring and Nia snatched me up Leah, ‘Cause the whole thing was that everyone on the team was heels and I was the only ‘babyface’ and they would all be against me, and she was going to kick me out.”
Lana was the only survivor of Team Raw in the end and won the match. We definitely have to wonder if there were other plans for Lana that WWE canceled because of Roman Reigns.
