Lana (CJ Perry) may have been released by WWE in June 2021, but she has been doing well for herself in the meantime. The internet star has her own thriving website, CJPerry.com, which rakes in the moolah, apart from also giving acting and reality TV a go.
However, she has spoken openly of her readiness to come back to pro wrestling, be it with WWE or joining her husband Miro in AEW. The former company let Mandy Rose go recently after finding out about her FanTime website, where she was posting adult content and raked in $1 million in December alone.
CJ Perry/Lana insist to “The Bailey Show,” despite making more $ in the last 6 months than her best year in WWE – she would “Absolutely” shut down her website to return to the ring.
“Life is not just about money, you have to do what you love.”

With this controversy still raging, there have been doubts if female talent in WWE can continue owning such content if they want to continue being employed. However, for Lana, it is a no-brainer, as she is willing to shut it down to go back to her former employers, as she revealed on The Bailey Show recently.
“My last couple of years in WWE, I had an incredible and very lucrative contract that I had worked very hard and long for, which was an incredible blessing that I’m thankful for. Even on CJPerry.com, in the last six months, I’ve grossed more than I did in my highest-paying WWE contract. I’m thankful for that. In the business that we’re in and the times that we’re in, you have to capitalize on everything because you don’t know how long it’s going to last. Instagram from 2010 to 2014, you grew much faster. 2017, 18, 19, you could get all these deals on Instagram, super high-paying deals. It’s not like that anymore. Things are always changing and evolving so quickly. You have to seize the moment because it might be gone tomorrow. I’m a big believer in saying, ‘Yes.’ I’m blessed to have this opportunity, but I would always return to wrestling. If WWE were to call me tomorrow and be like, ‘we want you back,’ it’s not about the money. I would shut the site down and go back because WWE is one of the greatest franchises in the world. Life is not just about money, you have to do what you love. There is nothing in the world like wrestling and if the opportunity was right for me to return and tell compelling stories and burn the house down, I’ll come back and do it for free h/t to Fightful.”
