According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, while not confirmed, there might have been more to the angle between WWE Diva Lana and The Rock on Raw this week. As seen on the show, The Rock insinuated the two had a romantic encounter the last time they appeared on Raw together, and the conversation was interrupted by Rusev.
While the angle might have simply been a coincidence, Meltzer is reporting that Lana once again has backstage heat in WWE. “Something happened where she said something. It’s probably nothing, but everybody’s talking about it,” Meltzer said. “Essentially she’s got the new round [of heat].”
Lana has had backstage heat in the company before on a number of occasions. She caught heat for reportedly leaking the news about her real-life engagement to Rusev, which resulted in the story line between her, Rusev and Dolph Ziggler ending abruptly. Weeks later Lana received more backstage heat when she called Paige a bully on Twitter. For what it’s worth, it looks as if Lana and Paige have since patched things up as the following exchange was posted on Twitter:
