Former WWE star CJ Perry, aka Lana, has said she would “absolutely love” to join All Elite Wrestling (AEW) if the story was right.
There was speculation recently that Perry may have made her AEW debut in allegiance with her real-life husband Miro during his feud with the House of Black, as an equaliser for HOB’s female member Julia Hart.
That didn’t come to fruition, but it seems the door is far from closed on Perry potentially debuting for the promotion at some point. Speaking on The Man Made Chronicles, she said:
“I would love to, I mean I love storytelling. I love wrestling and I love the fans. I can’t emphasize enough how much I miss it. I miss the fans, there is nothing like the people and that connection that you have.
“I love television and movies, but you don’t get that instant gratification. You don’t even know, all you really get is online with the critics. When you are live performing in the wrestling arena, you know exactly how they feel immediately.
“It is just such a relationship that I really am thankful for that I have with the audience. So I’d love to do something with AEW. If the story is right, I’d love to do something with Miro or maybe with other people. But I want to tell compelling stories, so if it is right I would absolutely love it.”
After being released by WWE in June 2021, Perry has stayed away from wrestling to focus on other projects such as acting and modelling.
