Lana’s absence from WWE TV amidst false accusations and personal reflection

She said, “I got in trouble for that. I wasn’t on television for three months. And I was on television straight for two years. I was made to feel it was all my fault. I had to take the blame. And for years I thought maybe it was my fault. For years.” Perry, feeling unjustly blamed, reflected on the incident for years and emphasized the importance of keeping her word. It was especially in the context of a later storyline with Bobby Lashley.
