AJ Lee On Talking Trash During Her WWE Tryout
After spending some time on the Florida Championship Wrestling, she was given a chance to shine in the NXT Talent Hunt competition. She was arguably the most impressive star of NXT season 3 but she failed to win the competition. She came out 3rd. The tournament was originally won by Kaitlyn and Naomi was the runner up.
she joined the main roster of WWE and started working as a diva. She had been very impressive from the very first day of joining the WWE and she mostly became famous because of her amazing mic skill. She also won WWE Divas championship for a record number of three times.
Only Eve Torres manage to win three Divas Championship in her career. In 2015 AJ Lee decided to take retirement from Professional wrestling and she was not seen in the ring of professional wrestling ever since. But recently she made a return to Women Of Wrestling as an executive producer but it has not been confirmed if she would wrestle or not.
AJ Lee who is a former three times WWE Divas Champion recently spoke to State Of Mind podcast where she talked about her WWE tryout and she also talked about talking trash during her tryout in WWE. She said;
“I also paid to tryout, which is such a gimmick. But it worked, I got hired. I don’t think I was supposed to succeed. I think I was good in the ring and I was supposed to train the other girls that were way hotter to go TV. Then I just got really lucky, I got popular with the fans.”
“I talked a lot of sh*t. That is my specialty, I am a sh*t talker. It was the first day. They called me in, there were like three rings and three rooms and we were running spots. I can run a spot, I am fine in the ring.
“But they called me into one of the rooms and were like, ‘cut a promo.’ I was like, ‘I thought we were doing that on Wednesday?’ They were like, ‘cut a promo now on the spot.’ I didn’t have anything planned so I went into a heel character and I was just a d*ck and it worked. That’s my natural instinct and it worked.”
