CM Punk Says AJ Lee Is Very Excited To Join WOW
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.
CM Punk who currently works in the All Elite Wrestling promotion recently spoke to My Mom’s Basementwhere he said her wife and former WWE star AJ Lee is very excited to join the Women Of Wrestling promotion. He also said that he told AJ that it was important to take a meeting with Jeanie Buss. He said;
“I don’t want to put words in her mouth. But I think that’s just a happy coincidence. I think it was more, you know. So I’ll go ahead. I had somebody reach out to me, saying, ‘Hey, Jeanie Buss wants to talk to April.’ I was like, ‘What?’ April doesn’t know anything about sports, like nothing, you know?
“So I took the idea to her and I was just like, ‘You have to at least take this meeting. Jeanie Buss is the most powerful woman in sports.’ You know, I think in my mind, I was just doing cartwheels thinking of my wife talking to Jeanie Buss. I thought that was super cool.
“They had a great conversation and Jeanie was just, you know, trying to kickstart WOW and it really just kind of fit into the stuff that April’s doing: writing, producing. So it really was just an idea presented to her that I think opened her up to, ‘Oh, shit. This is actually perfect. I can help the next generation of female wrestlers, with the creative side of stuff and I don’t have to get concussed.’ Like it’s excellent, so it really fits what she’s doing in her wheelhouse. I’m super stoked she’s doing it.”
