Tyson Kidd Tells Lana – “You’re Braver Than me”


Former WWE Superstar turned WWE Producer Tyson Kidd has taken to social media in support of the newly-released Lana.

Lana, real name CJ Perry was released by WWE on June 2nd alongside the likes of Braun Strowman and Aleister Black.

A couple of weeks after her release Lana posted on Twitter a photo after a training session alongside regular training partners, Kidd and his wife Natalya amongst others. Along with the photo, the former WWE Superstar wrote that she was a “little scared” to face her friends and get back in the ring.

Kidd, real name TJ Wilson, later shared the tweet, adding that it took him two years to face everyone after suffering the injury which ended his career.

“You’re braver than me, it took me nearly 2 years to see everyone again after my injury. You picked yourself up and dusted yourself off very well, it was so great to see you!!!”

In an earlier post on Instagram Lana had said that she was “ready to spill the tea” about her release.

“I just wanted to say I love you guys! I can’t wait to spill the tea 😎 Because it’s hot & delicious. I look forward to standing up & speaking out on things that for years I have been silent about. Also excited to talk about @tobemiro & that he is AEW TNT Champion! Please subscribe to my YouTube channel. I will be releasing vlogs starting this Monday”

Lana joined WWE in 2013, managing the man who would later become her husband, Rusev. The star now known as Miro in AEW.

Following a successful stint alongside Rusev all the way to the upper echelons of the main roster, the star began to regularly appear as a wrestler. After Miro was released in 2019, Lana transitioned into a full-time in-ring performer, via a short lived storyline with Bobby Lashley.

Lana’s final WWE appearance came on the May 31st episode of RAW, where along with Naomi the pair lost a number one contenders match for the Women’s Tag Team Titles.
