In an interview with Nerdist’s Fangirling host Markeia McCarty, Lana spoke on her strong desire for a women’s tag team division within the WWE, while reflecting on her time at WWE’s first-ever all women’s pay-per-view Evolution.
“It was incredible. I think that so many of us girls, we couldn’t have even imagined having an all-women’s pay-per-view. To be able to experience this and be a part of it, I’m just very, very thankful. One of these days we’re going to get tag titles. I’m like, we have to do that! I was hoping, really, that we were going to announce it at there. Because when they told us ‘oh, we have to come out at the end and everyone has to come out on stage.’ I’m like, ‘Oh, they’re going to announce tag titles. It’s happening!’ And then I was like, ‘Oh, this is just a major hope spot.’ But keep on going, it’s going to happen. But it’s exciting to be able to work towards those things.”
Lana isn’t the only female WWE superstar who has spoken out about their desire for tag team titles for women.
