Lana Talks Possibly Going To Smackdown, Title Aspirations, Funny Rusev Story

WWE is "shaking up" the rosters of its two main brands this coming week, and during a recent interview, Lana discussed the possibility of her moving from Raw to Smackdown.

"You see how I react to it. It's hard for me to say because I love Raw and the people I work with," she told TV Insider. "I think Smackdown Live is an incredible show. I think the way they have built the characters has been great. They utilize everyone and have put all the women into compelling stories. It would be an honor to go to Smackdown, too. I'm working hard because one of these days I will go for a championship."

Lana, who wrestled as part of a multi-woman tag match last year at WrestleMania, has been working occasional matches at NXT live events in Florida in recent weeks. 

Lana also related a funny story about her husband, Rusev, who is currently sidelined as he recuperates from shoulder surgery.

"Rusev told me a funny story where he was in a mall, and a whole bunch of these girls went up to him with their moms saying, 'Are you Lana's husband?' He goes, 'I am.' That had never happened to him before," she recalled. "They didn't even know his name, just that he was Lana's husband. So that was kind of cool. WWE empowers men, but WWE and Total Divas is also empowering women. It's a tremendous opportunity."

What is billed as the Superstar Shake-Up begins on tonight's episode of Raw and will conclude on Smackdown tomorrow.
