Lana is one of those people who has always, ever since she joined WWE, been seen only as a beautiful woman who has little to offer the world of wrestling, but she has certainly proved in recent times that this is not the case.
I may not be the best athlete on the planet, but the passion you put into improving yourself every day is an excellent quality that everyone should have. Since she quit the role of manager for her husband Rusev, now Miro in AEW, and left behind grim storylines that have done nothing but throw the hatred of wrestling fans on her, Lana has been reborn and given herself to do.
We have often seen her training in the gym of Natalya and TJ Wilson, with other WWE athletes, who together with her have proven to be more than a beautiful face and a beautiful body, a concept that should be overcome by now, but which unfortunately is still carried forward when it comes to women.
She did a beautiful tweet where she for the first time since her firing from the Stamford company, she let herself go, exploring her feelings and letting us know that she is not going to give up. Sometimes it is difficult, when something negative happens to us in our life, to open up to others and find the strength to carry on despite everything, but CJ Perry has helped to give security to people like her who have suffered a lot of bullying and cyberbullying or lost their work and need to get up.
"I was a little scared of facing my friends after I lost my job. But I'm happy to have recovered and to have continued my journey because I want, not because I have to. And I only cried once! Plus I made a 970 splash but no one saw it."

Braun Strowman, Lana and Aleister Black FIRED by WWE!
Layoffs in WWE seem to have no end in this 2021 and the Stamford federation, today, has again surprised the public around the world by announcing some unexpected and somewhat bizarre releases. Although it was news this morning, the new layoffs include a list of Superstars we never thought we'd see outside WWE right now, especially as some of them had just started new storylines or were part of the latest edition of.
WrestleMania. The names of the fired wrestlers are very prominent and are: Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Buddy Murphy, Ruby Riott, Santana Garrett. One of the names that surprises most of all and certainly that of Braun Strowman, former universal champion, intercontinental champion and couple champion, who since 2015 has been a stable presence on the main roster and who has recently taken part in a storyline with Shane McMahon which culminated at WrestleMania 37.
His last appearance dates back to WrestleMania Backlash, where he took part in a triple threat for the WWE Championship alongside Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre. Another name that will surely cause a lot of discussion is that of Aleister Black: the Dutch wrestler spent several months off the scene but had recently returned to SmackDown with a revitalized character and had recently started a feud with Big E.
Among others we find Lana, another Superstar on which the WWE has always staked a lot, both outside and inside the ring, and Buddy Murphy, who reached the apex of his career on the main roster as an adept of Seth Rollins, but who had long been struggling to find its place on the Friday night show.
Finally, Ruby Riott was also released, who was part of a tag team with Liv Morgan, and Santana Garrett, NXT athlete who had participated in the last Royal Rumble. As always, WWE wished the best for the future of all newly fired athletes.
