Lana’s pre-WWE modeling/FSU Cowgirls photos

Before managing Alxander Rusev (Miroslav Barnyashev) as Lana,

Catherine Joy Perry was part of the FSU Cowgirls, which got her acknowledged by commentator Brent Musburger. This led to multiple photoshoots for Perry and eventually her current role in the World Wrestling Entertainment. Some of her childhood years were spent in Soviet and post-Soviet Latvia, which is likely part of the reason for her role as Lana.
