After watching the video, we can say that Lana was not ready to walk away from WWE so soon. Nonetheless, over the years, Lana has proved to the world that she is a hardworking, talented, and relentless woman with ambitions to touch the sky.

Following her husband Miro‘s release from WWE, a lot of fans speculated that was it for Lana. She proved everybody wrong and continued to keep her head down and march forward. Lana had incredible in-ring knowledge and presence, along with a firm determination to be better than yesterday.

Now, the question on everybody’s mind is whether she will join her husband Miro in AEW. What a sight it will be if both real-life partners were to become in-ring partners and fight side by side. But for now, nothing has been officially declared.
