CJ Perry spent several years of her career in WWE as a manager before breaking out as a singles competitor towards the last year of her time in the company. She is now in AEW but her run got plagued due to a nasty infection, for which she needed surgery. Now Perry explained how she got infected in the first place.

CJ Perry was slated to be at CMLL representing Andrade El Idolo, but she had to miss out on that show as well as the 16th December episode of AEW Collision due to a severe infection on her finger, which worried fans.

Her infection worsened, which is why CJ Perry had to undergo emergency surgery to save her finger. CJ Perry also underwent successful surgery after the infection – bringing relief to fans.

The former WWE Superstar took to her Instagram and uploaded a video of herself at the hospital, where she revealed that her infection was from getting a small splinter backstage at work this past Wednesday.


‘I have been in the hospital since Saturday fighting a fatal infection that came from getting a small splinter backstage at work this past Wednesday. Please keep me in your prayers. And everyone really take care of any cuts you get. As small as a splinter can turn into a deadly infection. Love all of you guys and thank you to everyone who has reached out. ❤️❤️❤️”

We will have to wait and see when the former WWE Superstar will be able to make a full recovery and return to AEW television, as fans certainly miss seeing her in a big way.
