More on WWE Splitting Up Rusev & Aiden English, Burke Update

As seen on SmackDown Live this past Tuesday night and as previously reported, Lana returned to television in a backstage segment with husband, Rusev. The real-life couple had separated as an on-screen duo last year. Upon her return to SmackDown Live last Tuesday night, Lana seemed to have tone down her accent to not sound as Russian as she used to, and she also suggested that Aiden English was holding Rusev back. Since then, she has been retweeting messages stating that she should be back with Rusev, and that she is better than Aiden, as seen below:

What does @LanaWWE think is holding @RusevBUL back on this #RusevDay? #SDLive

“Something is holding you back.” – @LanaWWE to @RusevBUL #SDLive

Yes @LanaWWE!!
I’ve been saying for ages that I want The Ravishing Russian back in @RusevBUL’s corner. She always brings out the best in The Bulgarian Brute. This sight is simply incredible to see. It’s Rusev Day & Lana is the best, Lana number one! ???????? #SDLive.

It was previously reported that former WWE and TNA star Elijah Burke was backstage at last week’s SmackDown Live in Louisville, KY. There was also a report that seems to suggest that Elijah Burke was backstage again at this past Tuesday’s SmackDown in Montreal, Canada based on his tweet. According to backstage sources, those reports are incorrect and despite the tweet being posted this past Tuesday the photo is from last week’s SmackDown in Louisville, not Tuesday’s in Montreal. You can check out Burke’s tweet below:

So cool seeing @TheRock again @wwe Smackdown Live. I didn’t imagine that I’d be physically bigger than him but as I understand he’s slimming for a new movie role. Class act! Nonetheless anytime you have your picture taken with greatness you must share it with the world. ~PHS
