Lana refers to WWE as a “Toxic Environment”
After thanking fans for their birthday greetings, Lana spoke out on Instagram about her experience in WWE.
The former WWE Superstar said that working in WWE’s poisonous environment brainwashed her. She did express gratitude to the company’s remaining employees. She has concentrated on acting and modeling after her departure from WWE. She wrote:
“Thank you for all the amazing #Birthday wishes! Swipe to see my crazy past year! The last couple of days has been so emotional for me when I look back on everything that has happened to me this past year. From being on a poster at #Wrestlemania, having a match with one of my best friends & favorite dance partners @trinity_fatu at #Wrestlemania, filming the craziest reality show reboot for @viacom_intl #SurrealLife! Living in the house with ICONIC LEGENDS !!!!
“@tamarbraxton thank you for helping me deal with my mental health & anxiety❤️! I can’t believe I booked 2 movies in the past 6 months! On my birthday I was filming an action movie where I play an Assassin for @paramountplus where I was blowing up cars & kicking strong men’s asses! Talk about a complete 180 from WWE only wanting me to wear pink, have blonde hair & having MY ASS kicked! 😂 I had the most amazing time with my sister & family this past year because I finally had some free time & wasn’t on the road with #WWE 300 days of the year!
“@natbynature @tjwilson711 @yaonlylivvonce thank you for BELIEVING in me when I had no confidence left. On my birthday I was able to film & celebrate being alive & healthy another year with actors that I have looked up to for years! I am so beyond grateful, I can’t believe how far life has come in a year & how brainwashed I was from the toxic environment that I had worked in for 8 years. I allowed it to define my identity & self-worth. Change can be hard friends but let me tell you if you keep pushing forward no matter what, if you refuse to have one human’s opinion define your destiny, if you refuse to be put in a box by a corporation or society & you keep the blinders on and walk by faith then your life will become more then your wildest dreams.”
Lana’s final match was on May 20, 2021’s Raw. She was released in June of last year.
