The Ravishing Russian is not going anywhere…at least not in the next few years.

Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that Lana has signed a new WWE contract that will keep her with the company for at least 5 more years. Ryan Satin noted that both sides are happy with the deal and the contract was signed this week.

The new deal will allow her to take time off for outside projects, such as the movie with husband Rusev that is titled “Another Version Of You.”

Lana and Rusev are currently involved in a storyline with Bobby Lashley. According to the story, Lana wants a divorce from Rusev after hooking up with Lashley. This week on Monday Night Raw, Rusev attacked Lashley after being served with a restraining order.

Lashley and Rusev will meet in the ring this Saturday night at the Starrcade special on the WWE Network and there are plans for them to wrestle next month at the TLC pay-per-view.

Rusev has also been in contract renewal talks. No word on if he has agreed to terms but Lana’s signing would give the impression that he’s more likely to stay with WWE.

Where esle whas she ever going to go? WWE was her best platform.

Doesn't mean Rusev will stay, but I think he is. He's been defending his garbage storyline and yucked it up about the money he makes from Saudi Arabia. He's another guy who will bitch and moan but then re-sign anyways.

I mean, for her this is a good decision. Nobody wants her in AEW and AEW probably wouldn't want her either.

Good, because I think they could easily hire her a manager in NWA, MLW, Impact or the overhyped AEW...

Can I sign a multi year contract with the WWE too? I swear I'll never complain on Twitter.

It's a sign that Lana and Rusev are happy being in the WWE. That is what matters.

The whole Lashley/Lana/Rusev thing is still garbage though. I'm just sitting on my hands, waiting for that to be over with at this point.

Of course Lana was going to re-sign. She wouldn't add anything of value to another wrestling promotion so staying in WWE is a given.

Doesn't mean Rusev will re-sign too though (see Moxley/Young). I think he ultimately will however. He's the perfect example of a WWE guy from their current roster along with Miz and Orton and he seems like the type that's more about money than artistry and in the end he will also re-sign. But when that happens, I don't want to hear him spill his tea on Twitter again. You have many options if you want to get out now so if you decide to stay for 5 more years, that's all on you. Don't cry later on when they're doing nothing with you again.

Her re-signing is guaranteed proof, that the storyline between her, Rusev and Lashley was meant as punishment for even thinking of leaving. How and why anyone, knowingly, would go through all that shit and still re-sign... I have no words.

I'm pretty sure that Rusev will re-sign as well, but it'll be just the dirtsheets reporting that because kayfabe to the current storyline will be broken otherwise.
