CJ Perry (formerly known as Lana in WWE) will be part of the cast for VH1's revival of reality series "The Surreal Life."

It was announced on Thursday that "The Surreal Life" is being rebooted with a new season that will premiere on VH1 this fall. The reality series originally aired for six seasons from 2003-2006.

In addition to Perry being on the show, there will be another professional wrestling connection with Basketball Hall of Famer and nWo member Dennis Rodman being part of the cast. The cast will also feature August Alsina, Stormy Daniels, Tamar Braxton, Frankie Muniz, Kim Coles, and Manny MUA.

VH1 hyped that the cast is "coming together for a wild, over the top journey that pushes them to reveal different sides of themselves in surprising ways."

“The Surreal Life is known for bringing together some of the biggest names in pop culture and creating many unforgettable moments in reality television,” said Nina L. Diaz, President of Content and Chief Creative Officer of MTV Entertainment Group. “We are excited to see how this stellar celebrity cast will make captivating television for audiences everywhere.”

Perry was released by WWE during a round of roster cuts this June. During an appearance on Talk is Jericho earlier this month, she discussed being blindsided by her release.

Pro wrestlers Chyna and Maven appeared on previous seasons of "The Surreal Life."
