CJ Perry, known as Lana in WWE, wants to be back in the professional wrestling limelight.
Making an appearance for an interview on the “In The Kliq” podcast, CJ Perry was promoting “The Surreal Life” on VH1 and CJ Perry’s role on the show, which is scheduled to premiere on Monday, October 24, 2022 at 9:00 PM ET.
CJ Perry commented on whether or not she would ever return to WWE.
“I’m open to everything in life. If I put my dreams in a box, I wouldn’t be where I am today. So, I mean, Triple H, he’s a genius. Stephanie’s a genius. I got hired by Triple H. He paired me with Miro and helped really cultivate that, in 2014, that story and that gimmick and those characters.
He really helped me develop the Ravishing Russian, so I think he has an incredible creative mind. I think he is an incredible storyteller and entertaining. If the story is right, if it makes sense, I’m always open to go back to WWE and tell compelling stories and same with AEW. I’m totally open to that too. I love working with my husband and creating and telling stories.
My biggest thing is like, I don’t want to do anything mediocre. I don’t want to be average. I think that’s what Dennis Rodman (on Surreal Life) was saying to me is like, don’t be good, do something that you’re great at. So if I come back, when I come back to wrestling, I want it to be a great story and be compelling.
So until then, I don’t have to go back until I feel like okay, this is going to be great. I look forward to it because there’s nothing like the wrestling fans and having that emotional connection with the crowd and with the fans. I love our fans. There’s nothing like it.”
