Lana thanked Asuka for being her tag team partner, Trinity Fatu for being there for her, and Paul Heyman for the opportunities and the lessons.

She mentioned the several storylines WWE booked her in as a part of her eight-year journey. Her primary point was that the character Lana immensely appreciates the people around her. In fact, she even mentioned Miro (Rusev) and the chemistry they shared on-screen along with the infamous wedding storyline.

The controversial storyline between Lana and Rusev

Lana (CJ Perry) and Miro (Rusev) are married in real life. However, they were playing a couple on-screen as well. WWE booked them in a romantic angle, but involved Bobby Lashley in it.

The storyline progressed with Lana leaving Rusev to be with Lashley. In fact, there was a kiss and a wedding involved. WWE showed Lashley and her getting married after she divorced Rusev. Unfortunately, this storyline just faded with no conclusive ending.
