Following her ankle injury which required her to get a surgery and to give up her career in gymnastics Dana found herself looking for a new obsession.

She eventually lost interest in the sport and admitted that she wanted something more challenging.

4. Luke Gallows’ Wife Amber O’ Neal Had an Issue About Dana’s Promo with The Club
Dana teamed up with The Club during a recent episode of Raw. In their promo, Dana played the role of a nurse helping out The Club against New Day while the latter got Bayley on their corner. Luke Gallows’ wife, also a professional wrestler Amber O’Neal had a couple of bad things to say about that. Amber called Dana the B word in her Twitter account and she even had an exchange with several fans who are calling her out. The tweets have now been deleted. Considering how attractive Dana is – it’s not surprising that a seemingly innocent promo was enough to make Gallows’ wife jealous.
