Looks like there’s a WWE wedding on the way! Wrestler Alexander Rusev popped the question to his girlfriend and manager Lana back in Sept. 2015. Congrats!
Alexander Rusev, 29, is a winner inside and outside the WWE ring. The famous wrestler had proposed to his girlfriend, Lana, 30, who also happens to be his manager. Rusev proposed at the couple’s home in Nashville and filmed the whole thing!
Rusev, whose real name is Miroslav Barnyashev, asked his WWE manager to marry him in Sept. 2015, TMZ reports. He popped the question in their swimming pool and has it all on tape. How cute! He proposed with one heck of a rock. Lana flashed her huge sparkler for cute photos with her man.
But there something funny about this proposal. The WWE wrestler recently got engaged to WWE Diva Summer Rae on SmackDown — which you can watch HERE — but that was just for the storylines on the show. Lana is his real-life fiance.
Lana, whose real name Catherine Joy Perry, and Rusev clearly play up the Summer storyline. Lana tweeted on Oct. 7: When @RusevBUL was with me he was the undefeated #SuperAthlete where @RealSummerWWE has taken his career? She made him gentle which= loser.”
Lana and Rusev started working together in 2013. As part of the WWE “show,” she became Rusev’s “social ambassador” and used a Russian accent. Lana made her main roster debut on SmackDown on Jan. 31, 2014.
The couple reportedly started dating in 2013. They bought a house in Nashville in March 2015. Prior to buying their house, they had lived together for over a year.
We’re so happy for Lana and Rusev. We wish them all the happiness in the world. Hopefully they’ll have a big wedding full of WWE stars! Maybe they’ll film it for WWE! Wouldn’t that be so fun?
HollywoodLifers, send your well wishes and your congratulations to Rusev and Lana now! Do you think they’ll have a big wedding?
