WWE is gearing up to give Eva Marie a big push in the coming weeks at the expense of Lana, according to soucres.
After getting over in a big way as Rusev’s manager and more recently as his rival and Dolph Ziggler’s love interest, it appears WWE is getting ready to pull back on Lana’s push in favor of Eva Marie.
Eva Marie has been training extremely hard as of late with Brian Kendrick to improve her in-ring work, which has been universally mocked by the WWE Universe since she started with the company. Higher ups in WWE are looking to feature Eva Marie as one of the cornerstones of the “Divas Revolution”, with the storyline being Eva Marie took the rejection from fans to heart and it drove her to work hard and become Divas champion. Company officials are said to be very impressed with her work ethic and how far she’s come in recent months. They also believe she has “the look” that WWE wants.
Many fans have been calling for Lana to be reunited with Rusev, since both of them saw the most success when they were paired together. Many of you know by now that the two of them are dating in real-life and recently purchased a home together just outside of Nashville, TN. During a recent workout video clip published by WWE, Lana teased that she’s been working on her own in-ring work and sent a message to the other Divas that she’s becoming a threat they need to watch out for.
It remains to be seen if Lana does eventually become an active competitor, but expect to see some pullback on how much TV time she’s been getting.
