After the December 14, 2020 episode of Monday Night RAW, WWE has confirmed that Lana would be taken out of her match at TLC. She was scheduled to team with Asuka to take on Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.
On this past week’s episode of RAW, Lana had a match with a surprise victory over Nia Jax. But after the match, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler attacked Lana putting her out with a kayfabe injury. PWInsider reports that Lana will be out for 3-4 weeks.
Asuka will still compete in the match on this weekend’s TLC pay-per-view event. But, she will have to find a new partner.
Rumored partners include Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke and maybe … Charlotte Flair! Flair’s return at TLC has not been confirmed and is just rumored at this point. She has been out of action since June 2020 after taking time off for a minor cosmetic procedure. She is reportedly expected to return to in-ring action in time for WrestleMania 37 season and early 2021.
