The relationship between Miro and CJ Perry, after seven years of marriage, ended with the AEW wrestlers deciding to separate.

A Couple No More

TMZ Sports broke the story late Monday, reporting, “CJ Perry and┬áMiro┬áhave 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 outlet noted.

Perry and Miro tied the knot in the summer of 2016 after dating for a few years.

Perry, who portrayed Lana in the WWE, confirmed to TMZ Sports that the couple was indeed separated.

“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 TMZ.

Sources close to the situation say it wasn’t about adultery, bickering or any of the typical reasons people think of for why couples separate.

They just grew apart over time, it is said.

The two reportedly even plan to work together in the future – as friends and colleagues.

Plan to Still Work Together

In fact, it was also reported that Perry and Miro, known as Rusev in World Wrestling Entertainment, remain friends and still plan to work together in the future.

That’s probably news that will make AEW head Tony Khan happy. Therefore, wrestling fans have become accustomed to them being presented as a couple for years now.

This goes back their days in WWE, where Miro was ‘Rusev’ along with ‘Lana.’

It’s been a few months since they’ve been on AEW TV.

CJ Perry and Miro have reportedly not actually divorced, but apparently are comfortable with announcing their separation.
