AEW Wrestling Stars CJ Perry And Miro Split, Marriage Over After 7 Years

Mar 11, 2024 - by Steve Gerweck

CJ Perry and Miro have called it quits on their marriage 7+ years after tying the knot … and unfortunately for the two wrestling stars, this isn’t part of an AEW storyline.

TMZ Sports has learned the famous, now-former couple — who also play a married couple in the ring — broke up once and for all in winter 2023 … after years of an on-again, off-again relationship.

The couple said their “I dos” in July 2016 … a couple of years after they began dating.

We reached out to Perry, formerly known as Lana in WWE, who confirmed the split.

“Miro and I have made the difficult decision to separate after many wonderful years together, and have decided to move on as friends, and hopefully onscreen characters somewhere down the road,” CJ told us.

As for what went wrong, our sources say there wasn’t an explosive fight or cheating … they simply grew apart over the years.

In fact, we’re told Perry and Miro, known as Rusev in World Wrestling Entertainment, remain friends and still plan to work together in the future.

It’s likely music to the ears of the executives at All Elite Wrestling — where both are employed — as the wrestling stars have portrayed themselves as a married couple going back a decade to WWE, through present-day AEW.

CJ and Miro, a former AEW TNT and 3x WWE United States champion, were last photographed out together in public in late 2022… and it’s been a couple of months since they’ve wrestled together on TV.

Neither Perry nor Miro have yet filed for divorce.

Miro moved back to Bulgaria shortly after the couple called it quits.
