The last few weeks have been rough for Lana on Monday Night Raw. The Ravishing Russian's losing streak continued with defeats against The Riott Squad, Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax, and Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke. She had no time to rest after the matches, though, as she has been put through the announcers' table four weeks in a row.
Despite this adversity, Lana won the Number One Contendership Battle Royal by eliminating her former tag team partner Natalya on last week's Raw and she is scheduled to go one on one with Asuka tonight.
Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE believes Lana turned babyface with her battle royal win as she was able to overcome everything she has been through over the past few weeks and still emerge victorious. One company official even described her as a "massive babyface."
Bobby Lashley's former wife has certainly been portraying herself as a babyface on social media during the build to her title shot, and she even channelled Rocky Balboa and consumed raw eggs in preparation for the match.
