WWE released a lot of people over the past few years. Lana was released, because she had a huge contract, and the name of “budget cuts” was the reason given for cutting talent. You never know who might show up at the Royal Rumble, and Lana never inked a deal with another company since her departure.
Lana is in San Antonio before the Royal Rumble event. It was not noted why CJ Perry is in town around the Royal Rumble event, but her Instagram gave it away.
There is a lot of hype behind the Royal Rumble event, and you never know who will show up. As for Rusev, Lana’s husband is currently in AEW and under contract as Miro. We’ll have to see if either of them make a return to WWE, because Lana made it clear that she believes it will be Rusev Day once again in WWE someday.
