CJ Perry aka Lana RELEASED from WWE after eight years

WWE announced on Wednesday that they have released Lana, along with several other big names including Braun Strowman and Buddy Murphy.

Lana’s exit caps a lively couple of years with the promotion that included a Twitch controversy, internet trolls, going through nine announce tables, and ultimately being fired.

The 36-year-old also boasts a thriving TikTok account and often uploads sponsored posts as a fashion influencer to her 6million followers across social media.

Last year she enjoyed a short-lived partnership with Natalya Neidhart, called the Ravishing Harts.

But that ended after the WWE draft, with Natalya sent to Smackdown and Lana to Raw.

During her time in WWE, she also enjoyed feuds against current WWE tag team champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler – a storyline that saw her slammed into the announce table for nine consecutive weeks.

Lana made headlines last year when she nearly got Miro kicked off Twitch after she appeared in a bikini.

He was was later allowed back on the site following a suspension.

The former dancer was reportedly hoping to parlay her wrestling fame into a career in entertainment and fashion – a move she could now make.

Lana could also join her husband Miro in All Elite Wrestling, after he was fired by WWE in April 2020.

On Wednesday, WWE said they had also released Buddy Murphy, Aleister Black, Braun Strowman, Ruby Riott, and Santana Garrett.
