Lana has accused WWE of taking her pitches and using them for wrestlers other than herself.
The 34-year-old has been pretty vocal over her disenchantment with the promotion for a while now and, following Money In The Bank on Sunday, has left us to assume that she saw something happen that was similar to an idea she pitched.
"I love watching shows and seeing stories I wrote and pitched given to other people," she tweeted early Monday morning. "This might be the 10th time this has happened in the past year.... good to know I’m really creative that my ideas are given to others."

Sunday night also marked the long-awaited Game of Thrones finale and Lana wasn't very happy after watching that either, airing her disappointment via Twitter too. If you haven't watched the episode - because there was a lot going on Sunday night (Yay Bayley, Yay Raptors) - you need not worry. We don't have her tweet in here and won't spoil it for you.
Anyhoo, both Lana and Rusev have been quite critical of WWE this year. The couple turned up as guests on Lillian Garcia's podcast back in February and opened up on their unhappiness with the company.
“We’re not going to be forgotten,” Lana declared. “We’re going to fight for our careers. We’re going to knock on Vince McMahon’s door and fight for it. If you do not fight for your career, you will be lost. We’re going to do everything possible. If it’s not meant to be, we’re going to look back and say, ‘We did everything possible.’ And if that was the way the journey was supposed to go, then that’s the way it was supposed to go.”
Rusev would also reveal his frustrations over all of his efforts and pitches being ignored by Vince McMahon.
“I do all these things but nothing changes," he said, lamenting. "I’m trying to catch Vince’s eye. We pitch, we talk and it never comes to anything."
What This Means
Rusev and Lana have both claimed that they're being ostracized by WWE.
Well, it's one thing to sort of be made a pariah, but watching someone else play out the story you pitched has to be a different kind of maddening.
