WWE Superstar Lana’s character in WWE is very similar to how she is in real life as she is used to facing bullies both inside and outside the squared circle.
It is no secret that Lana has been subjected to a lot of bullying by various people on social media. She has often spoken about how it affects her mental well-being. She even once threatened to leave social media altogether following severe bullying. Despite all that, Lana has never given up.
Lana was recently interviewed by Sportskeeda and revealed how she motivates herself from all the negative comments made on her on social media. She then sent an encouraging message to those who have been bullied or are currently being bullied.
“Definitely motivation. I think that’s honestly sometimes what helps me keep going. When everyone is bullying me and everyone is mean to me, and everyone is saying you can’t do it, you s*ck, you are pathetic, you are worthless, you don’t belong, there’s something in me that goes ‘no I’m gonna prove you wrong’. No one’s gonna tell me what to do. I am the person who’s gonna decide my own destiny, no one else. No one else! And when sometimes it gets really hard, I think there’s someone out there, some kid, there’s some girl, there’s some woman, there’s some man, that’s getting bullied and wants to give up, that wants to think I can’t do it anymore. And I hope that my journey of falling down and getting back up, learning from mistakes, learning from defeat, you know persevere, not listening to bullies. Like I hope that my journey will help others to persevere. I hope my journey will help others stand up to their bullies. I hope my journey will encourage people. A lot of us in this time feel lonely in this time of social distancing and the hard time in the world and I just want people to know that they are not alone and that we can do it together.”
Lana is currently engaged in a feud with Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler. She is teaming up with Asuka to face the two and are scheduled to challenge for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at WWE TLC.
