She said (h/t: POST Wrestling), “So, there you go and then I also got a call from Vince [McMahon] about the blue hair, so I had to be blonde forever.”

“Even when I went brown. Not even brown, I had like light brown hair and I wore my hair — what I did for Royal Rumble last year. I got a call, I was told, ‘That wasn’t Lana’ and I had to put my hair in a pony, I had to go lighter and I couldn’t wear the color gold,” Lana added.

 

Lana’s last match was against Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke when she teamed up with Naomi in Raw. This match took place earlier this year in May, after which WWE released Lana.
