Lana was put through a table by Jax in successive weeks on WWE Raw

Jax and Lana shared an unexpected rivalry on WWE Raw. Jax put Lana through the commentary table in successive weeks. Lana later got one on her opponent, by pushing her from behind onto a tilted table at ringside.

Lana spoke about her rivalry earlier with Nia Jax saying (h/t Sportskeeda) :

I know that everyone wants to be laughing about certain things and making jokes, but I remember that. I say a lot of prayers that I’ll come out in one piece! But I don’t know, maybe I like the adrenaline rush. Maybe there’s something wrong with me. I’m like what am I doing! I’m running towards this powerhouse not running away from it laughs]. But I won’t let fears dictate my life.”

Lana’s Career Highlights

Lana signed in 2013 and began her career as a manager. She became the manager of Rusev, her now real life husband and was promoted to WWE Raw. The “Bulgarian Brute” had numerous rivalries alongside Lana. Lana’s popularity increased after the infamous ‘Crush’ gesture to end the match.
