WWE star Lana has had quite the year filled with Twitch controversy, internet trolls, going through nine announce tables, and now chasing her first wrestling championship.

Fast forward a few months and Miro would be released from WWE, leaving Lana as she had just signed a contract extension with the company.
Fans wondered what was next for Lana as her storyline romance quietly ended, and Liv Morgan moved on with her former Riott Squad tag team partner Ruby Riott.
During the summer months, Lana kept busy creating content on TikTok, and posting sponsored posts as a fashion influencer to her over 6million followers on social media.
Soon fans would find out what was next for Lana as she paired with the longest-tenured female star on the roster, Natalya Nedihart, for a short-lived tag team called the Ravishing Harts.

After the WWE draft, the Ravishing Harts were split up as Natalya was drafted to Smackdown and Lana to Raw.
Lana quickly entered a storyline feud against current WWE tag team champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler with her being slammed into the announce table for nine consecutive weeks.
WWE Network released a Chronicle documentary about the year Lana has had, in which she shared that this year has left her feeling “isolated and depressed” – especially dealing with how “mean people are online.”
However, after training with Natalya Neidhart, Lana has improved her in-ring skills despite the majority of her time in WWE was as a manager/valet.
So much so that Lana has a chance to win her first championship in WWE this month during the WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders, & Chairs pay-per-view.
Lana teams with current Raw champion Asuka to take on Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler for the tag team championships.
