Lana On Miro Not Being Used A Lot In AEW – CJ Perry (Lana) was on Busted Open Radio to promote her role on the new “Surreal Life”. Perry was asked why she feels Tony Khan does not use Miro a lot in AEW:
“I have a lot of opinions about this. Tony Khan has a vision. At the end of the day, let’s just really, if it’s 100% real, I think there’s this illusion at AEW that the talent books the show. That was definitely the conversation, ‘Oh you go there and you’re basically going to become whatever you’re made of’, but at the end of the day, he’s booking the show. It’s really no different than WWE. It’s just a different director and a different person’s point of view. It’s like comparing NBC to HBO. At the end of the day, he’s going to make that final call. That’s what it is.
Tony Khan has his favorites and he’s going to push the favorites just like Vince would push his favorites, just like Hunter is going to push his people. It’s show business. It’s nothing personal. It just is what it is. I think my husband is incredible. I feel Vince really valued him in that way and saw that. They hit heads a lot of times towards the end on creative differences. Vince really wanted him as a villain and Miro wanted to explore this new world. Again, I just take it like I do Hollywood. It’s casting. It’s the director. It’s the showrunner, and at the end of the day, we are hired talent. If you really don’t like the person you’re working for, then go start your own wrestling promotion and see how that goes for you.”
