Lana Comments on Becoming an In-Ring Competitor, Starting a Family, Nikki Bella Encouraging Her

E! News has an interview with Lana, who was promoting the return of Total Divas next week. During the interview, Lana credited Nikki Bella for encouraging her and preventing her from quitting.

"Nikki has helped me so, so, so much," Lana said. "There have been times in my wrestling journey—and you're going to see this on the show—when I've gotten discouraged because the success doesn't come overnight. It's a lot of getting in there and failing. She was really the person that kept on encouraging me not to give up, to be resilient, to be brave and to have courage. At times, I would think maybe I shouldn't continue to pursue my dream of competing in that ring, but she kept on telling me not to give up and keep on training. I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for Nikki Bella."

On becoming an in-ring competitor.

"My whole life, since I've been a little girl, I've watched wrestling and I've always wanted to wrestle. I just never thought that I was good enough to do that. I never thought I had the talent to be a professional wrestler. But I don't want to just hold a microphone and be someone's manager. I want to get in that ring and fight and compete. There's nothing in the entire world that has that adrenaline rush."

On starting a family.

"Rusev's Bulgarian, so apparently he feels like we should be getting ready to have children," Lana says. "He's very traditional and I am not traditional. Children aren't really on my mind whatsoever because my career is what's most important to me right now. I'm following my own dreams and aspirations, so you're going to see us work through that as I try to juggle being a good wife and a good career woman."
