All Elite Wrestling‘s CJ Perry was a recent guest on INSIGHT with Chris Van Vliet. When asked about leaning into the hot and flexible gimmick that Miro first spoke of on AEW programming, Perry said it stemmed from him being annoyed that she was exploited in WWE.
“So I think that Miro named me hot and flexible because he was so annoyed that I was so, I guess, exploited in WWE,” CJ Perry said. “I don’t really look at it that way; I look at it as more of like, I’m thankful for the opportunity.
“And you know, thankful that yeah, and apparently I was believable to be someone’s girlfriend, someone’s wife, someone’s ex-wife adulterous, you know, the revenge. And it’s TV, it’s television, you know, and so it has to be believable.
“So because of that, and I was always stirring the pot of being the bad guy, the heel. In men’s storylines, the only way that they felt creative that they could pay off getting like punching me in the face because they couldn’t punch me in the face was basically calling me like a streetwalker, like The Rock called me or an escort or, you know, all the flexible things that I did with The Rock.”
Working with The Rock
When asked about her on-screen interaction with The Rock in WWE, Perry recalled how that promo came about.
“Oh, yeah, that was really funny,” CJ Perry recalled. “So we get a promo. Like, in the middle of the day, we were working Big Show at the time. And this is when Miro was undefeated, and he was a hero of the Russian Federation. So they give us this promo, it doesn’t make a lot of sense.
“And they’re like, look at 7:15, meet us back by this door and this bus, and you’re gonna know what happens here. Like, okay, so I’m learning that we go back there. Then they open the door, and it’s Dwayne in there. And I’m like, wait, what?
“And they’re like, scratch that promo. So we had 45 minutes, it was maybe an hour, we had to learn a whole new thing, but it was great. It was a lot of fun.”
