At the end of 2020, CJ Perry (Lana in WWE) would find herself planted through a table courtesy of Nia Jax on television.
Perry going through a table every week become a running gag and fans speculated about the reason she kept being put through a table.
Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Perry revealed that it was her idea to be put through the table.
"No, 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. Do you want to die?' 'No, but I want to go through a table.' I pitched so many different times for me to go through a table. When we were in the story with Bobby Lashley and we had the match where he [Miro] was with Liv and I was with Bobby, I pitched, 'You go to super kick Bobby, he moves out the way, you super kick me in the face. WE CAN HAVE A TABLE! I CAN GO THROUGH A TABLE!' Vince (McMahon) and Miro shut that down. First, Miro shut that down. I'm actually a big believer in that, I don't think the table thing would have happened if Miro was there because he was so protective over me. Even in the ladder match, he was freaking out. Anytime I had a match, he was freaking out. He doesn't want anyone to get hurt, but especially his wife. I was really thankful I got that opportunity because I don't know if that would have happened in that exact manner if he was there. Vince thought it was funny that I would get so excited going through the table. 'It's my dream, I want to go through a table.' He's like, 'What is wrong with you? Okay.' When I think of wrestling, I think of craziness. I didn't have the cell matches, the cage matches, so any opportunity I got, taking a bump on a ladder, going through a table, I wanted to do it so badly. Very thankful, weirdly," she said.
Perry would eventually get her revenge on Nia by hurting her hole.
Elsewhere during the interview, Perry commented on possibly joining Miro in AEW and wanting to slap Julia Hart. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
