A former WWE star has made their on-screen AEW debut at All Out.
AEW was still reeling from the news that CM Punk had been fired by the company as All Out took place in the United Center in Chicago. It has been the most turbulent week in AEW history with the Punk fallout coming off the back of the biggest show in company history at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
All Out saw several AEW stars get their chance on pay-per-view after missing out on All with Miro and Powerhouse Hobbs two that made the absolute most of their opportunity. The two big men battled in a typically hard-hitting match with the crowd getting behind the displays of strength and toughness on display. In the end, it was Miro who was able to pick up the win who made Hobbs tap out with Game Over.
After the bout, Hobbs offered a hand of respect to Miro and the former TNT Champion accepted. However, when Miro turned his back, Hobbs attacked his opponent. Unfamiliar music began playing in the arena as Hobbs continued his assault before Miro’s wife CJ Perry made her first appearance for AEW.
She ran to the ring and clocked Hobbs with a chair. That provided enough distraction for Miro to get to his feet and take out Hobbs with the chair. However, The Redeemer looked less than thrilled to see his wife and left the ring without her.
What did CJ Perry do before AEW debut?
CJ Perry is of course best known to wrestling fans as Lana in WWE. She spent most of her time in that company by the side of Miro – then known as Rusev – leading him to success on the main roster.
Following her husband’s release from WWE, Lana competed as part of several tag teams and her last match in the company came on the 31st of May 2021 with her and Naomi teaming in a defeat to Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose. Just two days later, Lana was released from her contract.
