In spite of the WWE trying to break them up and pair them with other wrestlers, they defied management and broke the news of their engagement to TMZ. They have been through some difficult times, but they are apparently a happy couple in real life.

They also later appeared in the WWE studios film Countdown where they made their cameo as a couple which resembled that of their characters in the WWE as they tried to stop Dolph Ziggler the protagonist of the team from saving a kidnapped child. Rusev and Lana seem to have nice chemistry in front of a camera together and with their rising stock as the years progress, we might get to see them in future projects as well. After returning from injury, he was next managed by Nick Rogers and when he started out in NXT, he also had Sylvester Lefort as his manager, as they even wrestled a match together before Rusev took him out as his manager.
Only then would the Bulgarian Brute get Lana as his manager, and that sparked the beginning of a beautiful and devastating team-up in the WWE who would dominate the scenes for years to come. So when he brought Lana as his "social ambassador", the pairing of this monstrous, ruthless athlete with a beautiful woman like Lana was compared by the WWE to Ivan Drogo and his wife Ludmilla who were characters in the hit film, Rocky IV.

Ivan Drogo was an unrelenting boxer who killed Apollo Creed in a match, while his wife did the talking for him and the pair was exactly like that as WWE booked Rusev to be a ruthless monster and have Lana as his mouthpiece doing the talking for him. That's what also came to the mind of WWE, as it was soon reported that Vince McMahon wanted to break up Rusev and Lana in real life in order for them to have a better feud on-screen.

This disgusting ploy can be expected to come from Vince's mind, as the madman was trying very hard to get them to break it off with each other so that they could be better enemies on-screen, which could've helped make his product better even though the Rusev vs Lana feud was the worst feud in the WWE last year.
His connection with Lefort even briefly brought Rusev into the tag division, where he teamed up with Scott Dawson as The Fighting Legionnaires. It was shortly after this tag team dissipated that Rusev began his connection with Lana, who unlike her future husband, had virtually no experience whatsoever in wrestling at the time when they were paired up.
Rusev and Lana instantly connected with fans on a level significantly greater than Rusev had ever been capable of doing alone or with his previous alliances, and rumors almost immediately started swirling that their connection might have extended towards real life, as well. Unlike in the movie, Lana has yet to leave Rusev for the director.

The Observer is famous for its second to none coverage of the behind-the-scenes happenings throughout the wrestling world, and also the popular and opinionated critiques of magazine founder, Dave Meltzer. In addition to sterling reporting, Meltzer and his magazine have also awarded annual best of awards for excellence in various wrestling fields, including an award for the Best Gimmick.
Coincidentally, Rusev also won Most Improved the same year the two won recognition as a couple. Unfortunately, they started to receive backlash from their coworkers and employers in spite of these acknowledgements from the wrestling press. Rusev might be Bulgarian in reality, but he and Lana have long portrayed Russians on television, even going so far as to dedicate their victories to Russian President, Vladimir Putin. At the July Battleground Pay-Per-View, only three days after the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down, Lana may have taken things too far when she claimed the United States was responsible for certain global issues which many reporters assumed was a reference to the plane crash.
