Former WWE star CJ Perry (formerly Lana in WWE) recently recalled the romantic angle with WWE star Dolph Ziggler on the latest episode of “The Sessions with Renee Paquette.”
Back in the summer of 2015, Lana had developed an interest in Ziggler as she was growing distances with Rusev(now his husband Miro). Soon WWE paired these two up while Rusev was aligned with Danielle Moinet fka Summer Rae. The romantic relationship between Ziggler and the Ravishing Russian was highly appreciated as the two would go on to share some passionate kisses on TV.
Lana opens up on the awkward moments while rehearsing
Lana oepend up on her rehearsals for her skit where she had to kiss Dolph Ziggler:
“The crazy thing with Dolph that was super awkward was that we actually had the practice the kiss in front of Vince and Miro. So the funny thing is, Summer [Rae] was telling the story of how she had the practice kissing Dolph in front of Vince. I was like, ‘What? You had to practice in front of Vince? Yeah, right.’ She’s like, ‘Be ready. You might need to do the same at some point.’ I’m like, ‘Oh my God. Okay.'”
“A week later, we got called in. It’s Ace, Vince, Dolph, and Miro. We had to practice the kiss and Miro is turning red in the corner. Vince is like, ‘What? We’re all adults. What’s the problem? We’re all adults. It’s professionalism. Don’t be weird.’ So we do it, and Vince goes, ‘No, no, no, no, way slower.’ He doesn’t fully kiss Johnny Ace, but he gets like this close. I mean, it was hilarious. Dolph is dying. That’s why we went so slow in that segment. I recently watched it with one of my friends, and I was like, ‘This is so slow’, but everyone was like, ‘You look so innocent like you’ve never done it before’, and that’s what Vince was going for. He wanted it to be innocent like she had never kissed anyone before.’ It was very weird.”
