CJ Perry On The Mend
Now in a new video shared on social media, Perry thanked fans for their support and revealed that things seem to heading in the right direction as far as the infection goes:
[The surgeon] put an IV in my hand with a really long needle. She said it was going to feel like fire. And literally, fire…felt a stinging sensation go up my arm. Lasted around five minutes and then it went numb. She said it was good news..and she dug in more and started to see blood, and she said we’re heading in the right direction.

Despite the infection, CJ Perry was on hand at AEW Worlds End to screw her client Andrade El Idolo out of his match with her husband Miro. Andrade El Idolo is believed to be heading back to WWE after leaving AEW at the end of 2023.
