WWE stars often post different updates on different social media handles, and here are some of the biggest and most interesting Instagram stories from the past week.

1) Tough times for Lana

While Lana has had a tough time in WWE with her split from on-screen husband Bobby Lashley. The Russian posted a worrying update on social media too.

Lana confirmed that both her parents had tested positive for Covid-19 and this is a difficult time for her.

The virus is serious for those who are older, and we wish Lana’s parents a quick and speedy recovery from Covid, which has hit many countries hard.

2) Banks starring in WWE

Everyone knows that Sasha Banks is the Boss, and she is doing more than enough to live up to her name.

Banks and Bayley have been excellent on all three shows in recent weeks, and they have been electric on the microphone too.

While Banks joked that she is trying to buy WWE, there is no doubt she is one of the biggest draws in the promotion.

Banks has also thanked Vince McMahon for letting her do her job, and well, the results are showing.

Exotic’s documentary was one of the biggest stories of 2020, and well, Erik might have one or two stories to share about it too.

5) Baszler enjoying a different kind of break
