Lana is the International Social Ambassador to WWE Superstar Rusev. Born into a wealthy Russian family, Lana’s neighbors were ex-presidents, diplomats and other powerful political figures. Fulfilling her desire to pursue a stateside education, Lana attended Florida State University, where she not only learned English, but also majored in Foreign Affairs, Business and Social Media Marketing.
Encouraged by her parents to discover an investment hobby, Lana has invested her knowledge and business acumen into Rusev. Living by the philosophy that no mountain is too high to climb, Lana plans to use her smarts to conquer WWE.
Following Rusev’s impressive debut in the 2014 Royal Rumble Match, Lana put The Bulgarian Brute on full display, delivering their message of superiority to the WWE Universe. On the April 7 edition of Raw, Lana's "super athlete" defeated Zack Ryder in a dominating show of speed and strength.
The authoritative Social Ambassador created a stir in the WWE Universe at Extreme Rules prior to Rusev’s dominating performance against R-Truth and Xavier Woods, when she dedicated the match to her idol, Russian President Vladimir Putin. The boastful praise of Russia’s much-maligned leader has only increased disdain for this powerful pair.
Lana not only has displayed a significant amount of control over her client’s actions – commanding the massive powerhouse to “crush” his opponents – but the ruthless Social Ambassador also relocated the dominating Superstar to her native Russia.
On May 12, Lana continued her verbal assault on America when she interrupted WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan’s return to Raw by ordering Rusev to “crush” the patriotic ring veteran. Although Big E arrived just in time to save the “Legends’ House” star, Lana and her commanding client got the last laugh, knocking the former Intercontinental Champion from the ring in yet another impressive show of supremacy.
Lana’s Bulgarian Brute continued his destruction through WWE, topping Big E in a patriotic showdown at WWE Payback. The next night on Raw, as Lana proudly rejoiced, The Super Athlete was honored by Mother Russia with a Golden Star Medal after being named a Hero of the Russian Federation.
Apparently no American is off-limits to Lana’s scathing criticism, even the leader of the free world. On the June 9 edition of Raw, The Ravishing Russian called United States President Barack Obama a “sissy” and a “girly man,” while affirming Russian President Vladimir Putin as a strong and virile man who would “crush” the 44th president of the United States.
With Lana’s commanding edict over Rusev’s in-ring dominance, the imposing introduction of the “super athlete” has not only put the rest of WWE on notice, but put The Ravishing Russian on the map.
