The fact that she’s looking forward to a long tag team relationship with Natalya means that she’s firmly in the hands of WWE for now. Further, she seems to be aiming at the Tag Team Championship.

Lana plans on being in WWE for the long run

Considering that Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler just won the Women’s Tag Team Championship last week, the title picture could mean that Lana intends on staying in WWE for a while.

Having a role alongside her husband at the company, Lana never really got to establish her separate identity as a professional wrestler. Now, it seems that she has finally got used to her footing and wants to enjoy her time.

Miro’s debut in AEW booked the pair’s place in the list of WWE and AEW crossover relationships. There are a lot of rumors linking wives to their husbands in AEW because of this.
