Tell us about your experience of working in the “Survivor Series” An interesting event you wish to share from the same?
Survivor Series represented my life story. Every single member of my team bullied me. They told me I didn’t belong on Tea Raw even though I was the only person out of the 5 members that actually earned her spot. All I wanted to do was get in the match and wrestle and contribute. But my teammates bullied me into standing on the stairs. I truly just was trying to be a team player. Ironically, by standing on the stairs, that genius plan is how we won for Team Raw !! People want to hate on me, that I didn’t earn that win. But the bottom line of the Survivor Series Match is to be the Sole Survivor. It’s not how hard the punches hit, or how fancy the flips are. All that matters in the end is who the Sole Survivor is. I was the Sole Survivor. I proved my hates and naysayers wrong.
How did it feel to take fans behind the scenes of your life in your most recent documentary with WWE Network “WWE Chronicle”?
I was really nervous and scared. I felt like it was the first time that I opened up my real life with no filters. I felt like it was the first time that I showed CJ and not just Lana. On Total Divas, I never felt like I gave the world CJ. I was always Lana. I didn’t even go by my real name. I felt in “WWE Chronicle Lana” that was the first time I started to show the unfiltered version of who truly defines Lana……CJ Perry, the girl who had really big dreams and chased them resiliently and never took no for an answer. I really hope my story inspires people to chase their dreams no matter what age they are. That we are never too old or young to chase our dreams. And have the audacity to dream big dreams! I never, in my wildest dreams, would have thought I would have been the Sole Survivor at Survivor Series. Watch my journey up to that match and how I chose to defy all my odds. It’s also my first time that I ever opened up about my own struggles with mental health. I hope to encourage others that they are not alone and that it’s ok to not be ok.
