Lana today tweeted out a picture of herself and her husband Rusev training for their ‘Smackdown Live’ debuts.
The tweet was captioned with “Couples that run together
#CRUSH life together !!” which could signify what they may potentially do together whilst on ‘Smackdown Live.’

Rusev was supposed to make his debut several weeks ago for ‘Smackdown Live’ by addressing his desire for a WWE Championship match at ‘Money In The Bank.’ However, he never showed up. This is reportedly due to WWE changing plans last minute with the character, leading to Rusev watching sports instead.
Lana has had vignettes air every week since both her and Rusev were drafted to ‘Smackdown Live’ during the ‘Superstar Shake-Up‘ on April 10-11. She has been testing out a dancing gimmick at NXT live events, which is reportedly the same gimmick as Emmalina, but repackaged for Lana. WWE also hinted recently at her potential ring attire.
If any more news does come out on the status of Rusev and Lana, Wrestling Rumors will bring it to you here as news breaks.
I honestly can’t wait for both Rusev and Lana to debut. I love their characters and I know they’ll both bring so much to the table. It’ll also be nice to see Rusev potentially win the WWE Championship, because the man is beyond deserving. Lana could add some much needed spice to the women’s division.
What do you think of Lana and Rusev? Should they come to ‘Smackdown Live’ as a duo or separate? Which matches on the blue brand should they have?
