WWE Stars Lana, Rusev to Settle in New Nashville Home?
Lana and Rusev from WWE reportedly confirmed plans to take their relationship to the next level after the couple purchased a new Nashville home despite dating for only less than two years, says TMZ. Moreover, the two are neither married nor engaged.
The property they bought for $644,000 is an 11.56-acre estate with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, its own pond, a hot tub, and a basketball court. According to the report, the famous wrestling couple perceive this new home as their future love nest as husband and wife.
Inquisitr says that the couple started dating each other when they began their careers in WWE NXT. Although Lana and Rusev are marketing themselves as Russians inside the ring, the two are actually decidedly Americans out of the arena.
Rusev goes by the name Miroslav Barnyashev, which may sound Russian but the wrestler actually hails from Bulgaria. Meanwhile, Lana is an aspiring model from Florida. Her real name is CJ Perry, and she was even one of the cheerleaders of Florida State.
When Global Ent News posted pictures of their new Nashville home on Twitter, many of their fans quickly assumed that their idols were soon getting hitched. “WWE stars, Lana and Rusev – In Mother Russia, we buy house together before marriage,” the social media post read.
Ever since it was revealed that their Russian characters and accents were all just for show, the couple have become the topic of a lot of Russian spy jokes. Pro Wrestling even related the duo's Russian pretensions to the hit FX spy show, “The Americans.”
According to the report, Lana and Rusev have been so convincing through the years that their Russian wrestling characters could actually be effective fronts for two real spies for the Russian Government. The report even jokingly hoped that their new Nashville neighbors, which include Dixie Carter, will be keeping an eye on them.
Additionally, Lana has a recurring appearance on WWE “Total Divas.” Rumor has it that she and Rusev actually got engaged in secret, and that they are merely waiting for the show to finally air to officially announce their engagement.
