Vince McMahon ‘Demands’ Lana Lose Match
Vince McMahon gets what he wants every time. It doesn’t matter if someone around you agrees or disagrees. Actually, if someone agrees, Vince will most likely do the opposite. Lana can’t even escape its clutches. Vince McMahon ‘canceled’ Bray Wyatt’s return to WWE
Lana recently spoke about her role in WWE on the “Truly Anything” podcast. Lana talks about how to deal with bullies in real life
Lana stated: “I was hired because I was a professional actor and dancer and I spoke Russian. The thing that moved me much faster than most, from NXT to the main roster, was actually being an actor. I played this Russian character with an accent. She was a villain and didn’t smile. You go into development to learn to fight or act. Some people come in as actors and need to learn to fight. “
Lana continued and spoke about Vince’s role in her career: “Some people already know how to fight, but maybe they need to work on their acting. Acting helped me a lot. Obviously, everything is predetermined and we do not dictate who loses or writes our promotions. Sometimes we have something to say, but sometimes Vince McMahon has an idea and you have to do what he wants. “
Lana advances: “It has always been much easier for me to understand that these losses are predetermined. “Oh, do you need me to come out and have everyone laugh at me?” It is not personal, it is a story and I am a character. I’m not going to argue with Steven Spielberg like, ‘Why did you kill me in the movie? Why do people laugh at me? Why do you want me to lose? “I find it funny when I work with people who get upset about these things that everyone knows are predetermined. Acting helps, coming from that world. “
