Over the weekend, actress Stephanie Beatriz — aka Rosa Diaz from ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ who I’d call one of my favorite characters on that show if every character on that show wasn’t “my favorite character from that show” — posted to social media about a random blonde holding up traffic by doing a photo shoot in the middle of the street in Los Angeles.
As you guessed from the headline, or from having watched enough pro wrestling to recognize the back of these people’s heads, that mid-traffic model turned out to be WWE’s ‘Ravishing Russian’ Lana.
Also as you might’ve imagined, Lana immediately fired back on social media, and now I’m pleased to share that a WWE Superstar is Twitter beefing with someone from the Nine-Nine. We’re one step closer to Rusev feuding with Nikolaj.
But for real, if Saturday Night Live is sending Michael Che and Colin Jost from Weekend Update to WrestleMania as “correspondents,” can we leverage this feud and those connections to get Andy Samberg on the show? Samberg interacting with his jacked pro wrestling doppelganger EC3 (well, more so during his NXT rookie days), is the kind of thing that needs to happen.
Regardless, let’s get Rosa Diaz cutting a promo on WWE TV soon.
