On a recent edition of the “In the Kliq” podcast, CJ Perry expressed her desire to wrestle a hardcore match if she ever straps on her boots for AEW.
Perry debuted at AEW All Out 2023 and has been playing the role of an aspiring manager thus far. She said,
“Maybe I’ll have a hardcore match. Someone recently asked me, ‘Hey, so are you going to wrestle?’ I’m like, ‘ like, Look, it’s a wrestling show. Obviously, I’m going to fight a bitch or two if I need to.’ Again, it’s all about story. If you push me too far I’m going to punch you in the face. Then, later I was thinking, on the alternative show [WWE], I will always wanted to go through a table and I always wanted a ladder match. Miro, being the protective person that he is was like, ‘Absolutely not. You will die,’ and I’m like, ‘Okay, calm down, Mr. Bulgaria’ Of course, I was able to do both. Ironically, it was after he left that I did all the tables. Ten tables, it was my dream. I’m kind of hoping now, I keep on saying that I want to do a hardcore match. The Redeemer, again, ‘No. Do you want to die?’ I’m just like, ‘Why not do it here? You’re not going to do it in any other place.’”
She continued, “Honestly, Saraya. Obviously, she’s one of my favorite people and I’ve known her for over a decade now. We have so much history and she’s helped me so much in wrestling. I definitely trust her and I’m close with her mom. So that would be just like a crazy dream, but there’s so many other incredible people. Britt Baker’s character work is amazing. Toni Storm, I’m a fan of a lot of women.”
Kota Ibushi will return to AEW Dynamite next Wednesday, but the Japanese star revealed that he has suffered an injury while training.
Taking to Twitter, Ibushi revealed the injury he suffered ahead of his street fight with Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho & Paul Wight vs. The Don Calls Family.
Ibushi tweeted, “Street fight training is over. The back of my hand broke when I threw it in a full swing, but it would have healed in three days. I’m looking forward! I’m in the mood! Sorry if it’s not what you expected. I need to get insurance lol”
