Powell’s POV: The virus has hit the family hard, as Rusev’s wife Lana (CJ Perry) announced last week that her mother was hospitalized, and her father also tested positive. Here’s wishing them all the very best.

  1. Curious as to when Powell blames this on WWE too.

    • Yes, poor WWE. They handled the pandemic so well by running all those shows using only temp checks and a medical questionnaire at the door when they could have paid for actual COVID testing. You know, like they finally started doing only after there was an outbreak at the PC. Give me a break. Why is it that the guys who allege media bias always reveal themselves to be fanboys for one side or the other?

      Considering it’s running rampant in Lana’s family, and she’s been working WWE shows with no real testing, it’s absolutely their fault.
