Lana emerged as the sole survivor in the traditional women’s 5-on-5 elimination match this past Sunday at Survivor Series. This could be the beginning of her ascent in the company.
On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez revealed that the WWE creative has been crafting some cheeky ideas for Lana for the Royal Rumble in 2021.
“I can tell you this that they’ve been considering doing that finish for years, not with anybody in particular. It comes down and there are two guys left and number 30 hasn’t come out yet and the last two guys eliminate themselves and then number 30 saunters down to the ring and wins, and you know, I’ve heard the idea before. I don’t know if they’ve actually considered doing it, but people there have told me the idea.”
According to Ringside News, the “automatic winner” idea gets discussed every year as there’s always someone on the roster who could pull that off with his/her gimmick.
A Royal Rumble victory wouldn’t likely get Lana anywhere and could do more harm than good on the Road To WrestleMania.
