During a recent appearance on “Busted Open Radio,” former WWE Superstar CJ ‘Lana’ Perry revealed that it was her idea to go through a table multiple times in WWE.
While she had been wanting to do the spot for a long time, she admitted that her husband Miro wasn’t a fan and would have never allowed it if he was still working for the company at the time. She said,
“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.“
