During a recent interview on Lillian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast, Rusev and Lana revealed that they will no longer be part of Total Divas moving forward.
The show is known for often chopping and changing the cast of WWE Superstars in order to keep it fresh, and the WWE couple revealed that they will not be in the cast for the next season.
Lana stated that she was told by Kevin Dunn the couple was a “shoe in” and could even have a spinoff show, but E! executives stated that focus groups didn’t like the couple, which made her emotional.
Landa discussed how she had tried hard to get onto the show in the first place and added that the editing can often change how certain situations actually played out.
Rusev then stated that he wants a show of his own and revealed that they are working on two different shows outside of WWE, which have been discussed with Kevin Dunn.
It is currently unknown what the full cast for the next season of Total Divas will be and whether or not a new WWE couple will replace Lana and Rusev.
