CJ Perry, who was formerly known as Lana in WWE. Lana had a pretty good career in WWE, even though she hasn’t wrestled a lot in the ring.
CJ Perry was part of a controversial storyline with Bobby Lashley, it was criticised a lot. But on the other hand it gained lots of fans attentions and also was viewed by millions and millions of people on social media platforms.
CJ Perry recently was interviewed by Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, where she talked about her storyline with Bobby Lashley. CJ Perry says her Bobby Lashley storyline made WWE lots of money.
“This is a business at the end of the day. So Vince thought that was good business. It would be naive of any of us to think he doesn’t know what he’s doing. Yes, we’re younger and we have a youthful opinion to bring to the table, but he has years of experience. So, look, it got me the biggest contract I ever got in my life and I’m very thankful for that. I think that, again, what the Bobby Lashley story taught me is scandal sells.
“So it doesn’t matter, it still sells. People might hate it, we still made WWE a lot of money. Like our YouTube videos made them a lot of money. This is a business at the end of the day. If it doesn’t translate into sales, if it doesn’t translate into subscriptions, ticket sales, all of that, viewership, then who cares? I’m just hired talent. We’re storytellers. We all know there’s been a ton of affairs and love triangles.”(H/T: RingSideNews)
