Since being released by WWE in June 2021, Lana (CJ Perry) has thrived with her own website CJPerry.com. She's also pursued other ventures outside of wrestling including acting and reality television.
Mandy Rose was recently released by WWE after she reportedly posted questionable content on her FanTime website. Rose's FanTime website has been a profitable venture as she made $1 million in December.
Speaking on The Bailey Show, Perry noted that even though she is making more money from her website than she did on her WWE contract, she would shutdown the site and return to the company if asked.
"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," she said.
When asked to confirm that she would shut down CJPerry.com to return to WWE, she stated, "Absolutely."
Perry has said in the past that "everyone returns to WWE at some point." You can find her full comments by clicking here.
