Lana has been a staple of the WWE since she debuted in 2013. Despite a few bumps in the road she has maintained a positive relationship with the WWE and has gotten over pretty well with the audience. Some think that it’s the Untied States’ turbulent relationship with Russian that exacerbates the hatred that some fans feel for her, and others think that it’s her appearance that gets her over. Both are true, but the Russian angle will only take you so far depending on who you are talking to, the real reason we all like Lana is because she is drop dead gorgeous. I mean the woman even has people chanting that they want her when she is standing ringside.
Even though she is a married woman now, it hasn’t stopped the men (and women) of the world from lusting over the Ravishing Russian on a daily basis. Lana adds flames to the fire by posting so many risque pictures on her social media. That is why today we are going to take a look at 20 of the hottest photos from Lana’s Instagram that are guaranteed to make your jaw drop.
As always if you feel that there are any glaring omissions, please let us know in the comments section.
20 Bikini or Lingerie
Lana is no stranger to showing off a little skin, but in this case, it’s a little hard to tell what she is actually wearing. With the lacey sides to the bottoms, it would appear that the Total Divas star is giving the world a look at her undergarments. The caption, however, indicates that Lana is actually wearing a bikini and the outfit is “#beachbunnyswimwear”.
Though I’ve been talking about what she is wearing, the real star of this picture is Lana’s sex cuts which are on full display. Maybe it’s the way that she has angled herself for the snapshot, but if Lana is going to the beach looking like that, Rusev better keep a close eye on her. We're assuming he already does.
Many things in the WWE are fabricated, but Lana did actually live in Eastern Europe during her youth - it’s the reason that she does such a good Russian accent. During that time she was a student at one of the most prestigious dance schools in the world. When she eventually moved back to the United States she still worked as a dancer in various television shows and movies, but mostly in music videos.
It’s pretty evident that Lana still loves to dance, as she frequently posts videos of herself dabbing and twerking on her social media. One little trick that she also has hidden is her ability to do a full split with ease, shown off in the photo above. You can probably guess what the comments section of that picture looked like.
It wouldn’t be a true Instagram list if I didn’t include at least one throwback picture on it, and this one doesn’t disappoint. I’d say that this isn’t a picture of Lana at all, but rather of CJ Perry because I’m not really sure anything gets more All-American than a sexy brunette walking around the beach in a bikini. This photo was taken shortly after her days at Florida State as one of the “Cowgirls”, which was a group of insanely hot women who dressed up for FSU home games.
It was the exposure from being a cowgirl that landed Lana many of the gigs that would eventually lead to her joining the WWE. Although she looks good as a blonde, this may be a good look to go back to after a while.
Sure she debuted as a valet on SmackDown in 2014, but Lana has taken strides in becoming more than just a manager over the past few years. Casual fans may not realize it, but Lana has actually had a bunch of matches for the WWE since 2016, it’s just that many of them have been untelevised. She has really attempted to learn her craft, and apparently, the WWE brass thought she had learned enough to get earn a SmackDown Women’s Championship match at Money in the Bank this year.
Lana was able to improve on her in-ring ability after being sent to NXT, and this is a still from one of her matches. You don’t really need a magnifying glass to show you that Lana is bursting out the back of her ring gear, and she has a nice bit of cushion to land on after taking bumps.
16 Shake It Up
What’s there really to say here? Naomi and Lana literally shaking their girls non-stop is something that never really gets old. As you scroll through Lana’s page more and more, you begin to see that Naomi is featured a bunch of times and the two might actually be friends. They sure do look friendly in this gif which features big smiles and the two shimmying right beside each other in a pool. Of course, this also could just be some clever marketing by the WWE wanting to promote their brand.
The gif is accompanied by a reminder for fans to tune into the newest season of Total Divas, and in terms of marketing a show with a viral meme this may be the best of the best.
15 Getting Dirty
There is nothing like seeing a pretty girl get a little dirty, and yes I am speaking literally in this scenario. In this picture, we have the usually proper and prim Lana in the middle of an auto yard flipping dirty tires wearing an all black gym outfit. Not only does Lana impressively lift the rubber monster off the ground, but look at that perfect squat position. That position also gives us a very good look at some other massive things that Lana has to carry around, granted those things are probably a lot more fun than some old tire. In any case, Lana appears to be training in this obviously staged picture and she even captioned it with “#Lanacrush” perhaps hinting towards her in-ring future.
So you just got done with a workout and decide to hit the sauna to sweat it out a little before calling it a day. When you walk into this coed sauna you see Lana sitting in the room with sweat just dripping off of her body...what do you do? I think that most of us would be speechless if we saw the Ravishing Russian sitting half naked and glistening from head to toe. Lana is obviously not wearing a towel in this photo, and if you look closely you can make out the slightest hint of her thong. I can only imagine that this is what Lana looks like after she has been ravaged by the Bulgarian Brute. At least, that's what we think.
13 Culture Clash
There is a good chance that if you’re clicking through wrestling articles on The Sportster that you are a wrestling fan. And as wrestling fans (myself included) we have to face the fact that we are a group of geeks. Now before you get mad and send me death threats, just take solace in knowing that there's nothing wrong with that. In fact, now more than ever all forms of geekdom are accepted in pop culture. Many times those different areas of geeky goodness overlap into some of our favorite things, and in this case, if you are a wrestling fan and a Star Wars fan, then you may like this photo. This picture of Lana rocking a classic New Hope shirt isn’t the only photo on her Instagram that shows her embracing her inner geek. Not the sexiest picture, but a jaw dropper for sure.
12 I Do
Don’t you wish that all wedding dresses looked like this? Sure it wouldn’t be that practical in the winter months, but the greatness of this outfit surely outweighs the bad. Here we see Lana posing for a photoshop wearing a flowery veil with a white string bikini. Lana’s social media is packed full of relics from her wedding with Rusev. Whether it’s from their RAW celebration, the episode of Total Divas which featured it, or the real moments that they had together, there is no shortage of wedding related material on her Instagram. But even with all that, this one single picture of her wearing what I can only imagine was under her actual wedding dress, is the greatest picture of them all.
11 Yee Haw
During the days of kayfabe in wrestling, most wrestlers would stay in character all day every day. Today it’s hard to find anyone in the WWE who stays in character for longer than an episode of RAW or SmackDown. Lana is no different, and despite this being a photoshoot, you would never catch a Russian wearing this local yokel outfit that she is wearing. Don’t get me wrong the picture itself is great, as it features Lana sitting spread eagle on a tractor while wearing daisy dukes.
To be honest, if you didn’t know that she was involved with the WWE, it’d be easy to confuse Lana with an adult film star based on the way she looks in this picture. There were probably a lot of disappointed people on Instagram upon learning the truth.
Unfortunately this glorious post was deleted from Instagram, but thankfully the internet took notice before it came down!
The Rock’s movie Baywatch may have flopped this year, but maybe if he would have cast Lana wearing this iconic swimsuit the movie would have stood a better chance. The bathing suit is very retro looking, especially with the deep triangle shape that shows off nearly all of the Ravishing Russian’s hips… not that we’re complaining over here.
The only knock that you can give this picture is that there is an obvious Photoshop fail in it. If you look closely at the right side of the photo, you can clearly see that the wooden post that Lana is holding has been warped and looks unnatural. Many keen-eyed fans pointed this out to her in the comments section of the picture.
9 Denver Bronc-woah
It’s so odd that a woman wearing football gear is so satisfying. Granted in this photo Lana isn’t wearing shoulder pads or anything, but she pulls off a Denver Broncos jersey pretty good. With her white shorts and Peyton Manning Jersey, Lana easily could have been a member of the LFL if she didn’t choose a career in the WWE. This picture was actually from a photoshoot that the WWE had before the Super Bowl in 2016. The shoot also featured Charlotte Flair wearing a Carolina Panthers jersey, with the two women fighting over the football. Lana easily edged out Charlotte in the photoshoot, which may have been the thing that led to the Broncos defeating the Panthers at the big game that year.
8 Bursting Out
Late night #workout complete!!Now ready to get caught up on #Vikings & get ready for the best episode of #TotalDivas tomorrow mostly because @rusevig will be cracking lots of jokes on there ! What is your favorite show on tv ???? ?
Lana took this picture after a late night workout and if I had to guess, I’d probably say she worked out at home based on her outfit. The sports bra and shorts are a staple for women in the gym, but this little getup is definitely a little too small for Lana to be wearing in public. The sports bra, in particular, seemed to barely be enough to contain her chest, which is spilling out of the sides. It’s obvious from other pictures online that Lana has plenty of access to bigger tops, so she must have known that she would be showing off that much skin. However, if it turns out she did go out to the gym to work out while wearing this then all the people there got a great show when she hit the treadmill.
7 Double Vision
The only thing better than watching Lana getting sweaty in the gym has to be watching two Lanas getting sweaty in the gym. It doesn’t matter if one of them is actually just a reflection, it still gives fans the illusion that the Ravishing Russian has an identical twin for us to check out. In reality, this picture gives us a nearly 360 view of her amazing body that she seemingly works on every day. It’s hard to say if this picture has been touched up in Photoshop or not, as Lana has a more muscular appearance in at as opposed to her usual soft look. Specifically, her arms and core look like that of a fitness model, almost on par with women like Dana Brooke and Charlotte Flair.
6 Keep on Climbing
Usually with social media people will post a ton of pictures and videos from an upward angle looking down, which for Lana means we are seeing all face and chest. In this little gem from Instagram, we are being treated to a gif from below Lana, which was taken while she was rock climbing with Natalya and Nikki Bella. Based on the caption it looks like Lana was rock climbing while filming the newest season of Total Divas. Her skin tight jean shorts leave very little to the imagination, especially since the gif is basically a nonstop twerk session. You can say whatever you want about her, but you can’t deny that Lana knows what the people want to see!
5 Tropical Paradise
OK so I think it’s time to talk about the elephant in the room, and no I’m not talking about Rusev here. This picture of Lana sitting on the beach in a teeny bikini shows off nearly everything that she has to offer. If you have been keeping score so far then you know that her chest is a focal point in most of the pictures on her Instagram. But here’s the thing, a few years ago before joining the WWE Lana posed nude several times and looked a bit different. Specifically, her chest wasn’t nearly as massive or round as they appear to be in many of these photos.
Though she has never publicly admitted it, I think at this point it’s pretty obvious that Lana may have gotten a few things enhanced in the past few years.
I guess since he was referenced in the previous post, that I will talk about the other elephant in the room; Rusev. I mean Rusev is not the typical guy that the WWE would hire in 2017, but due to his ability and charisma, he has been mildly successful in the company. His biggest success, however, is landing the sexy blond bombshell Lana in real life. At first, many thought their relationship was a sham that was being purported by the WWE in an attempt to build their characters. As time went on we learned that the duo was actually madly in love and that they were getting married. I say all that to say this, if the couple above can exist in real life, then there is truly hope for us all.
3 Another Bikini Picture...Yes
I really didn’t want this to turn into an all bikini list, but sometimes while scrolling through an Instagram you stop and stare at certain pictures and this is one of them. There really isn’t much going on, except that we see a full-length photo of Lana from top to bottom. And for all those foot fetish people out there, this one even features some of her toes! One interesting thing about this post is that Lana is wearing two seasickness wristbands, meaning that she can’t really handle hanging out on a ship for too long. Hopefully, she does us all a favor and posts more photos of herself getting out of the water instead of standing on a boat.
2 Workout Complete
You know that a woman is working with some serious assets when you can see their butt sticking out from the front. Lana is sitting on this exercise ball, which most people sink into, and still, has enough backside to have it pop out in this picture! Aside from that, we see her wearing a sexy pair of yoga pants that only add to the appearance of a certain body part seeming huge. Moving up from there we see a tiny muscular waist that almost looks out of place given what it’s connected to in this snapshot. Maybe it’s the way the light is hitting her, or the way she angled the picture, but this is an absolute stunner from the Ravishing Russian.
1 Product Placement
I’m no marketing expert, but I am pretty sure that if any company wants to instantly increase their sales numbers, then they should just have Lana make an Instagram video of it. Maybe it makes more sense when the company is Calvin Klein and the product is underwear, but hey I could be wrong. What isn’t wrong, however, is watching Lana dance around in the matching gray set from a top down view. It’s pretty ironic that this photo was captioned with the hashtag excited because I can’t think of any other word to describe the feeling that everyone got while watching this clip. This was posted on New Year's Day, and I literally can not think of a better way to start the year than waking up and seeing this.
