Lana Opens Up On Dangerous Pitches Miro Shut Down

Lana

Former WWE Superstar Lana has discussed pitching a dangerous spot several times in WWE, but having the idea repeatedly shut down by her husband, Miro.

During her time in WWE, Lana was not known as the most extreme performer, however, she has now revealed that she “begged” to be put through a table.

During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, the star, now going by her real name of CJ Perry, said she wanted to go through a table for a “very long time” but her husband, AEW’s Miro, was against the idea.

“I actually begged for it. I’m not even kidding. I wanted to go through a table for a really long time, and Miro was like, ‘Absolutely not!’ He’s like, ‘Do you want to die?’ And I’m like, ‘No, but I wanna go through a table!’ I pitched so many times for me to go through a table,”

Lana initially pitched a table spot for the mixed tag team match which saw her team with Bobby Lashley to clash with Liv Morgan and Miro – known as Rusev in WWE – but the idea was rejected by both her husband and Vince McMahon.

“When we had that story with Bobby Lashley. I pitched when we had that match with Liv. He was with Liv and I was with Bobby.

“I’m like, ‘You superkick Bobby, he moves out of the way, you superkick me in the face, and we’re gonna have a table! I can go through a table!’ But, Vince and Miro shut that down, first Miro shut that down.”

CJ Perry finally got her wish granted during her 2020 feud with Nia Jax. During the rivalry, she was slammed through the commentator’s table for nine consecutive weeks of Raw.

CJ Perry was released from her WWE contract in June of 2021 and has not been seen in the ring since then.
