AJ Lee had been a WWE Divas champion in three occasions and she had performed for the company from 2009 in its developmental territory, and from 2010 on the main roster until her retirement in 2015.
Recent reports have it that, AJ Lee was a guest on CBS Sports where she was interviewed to promote her book and in the interview she spoke about so many things including her possible return to the WWE where she said:
“I never would say that because I’ve personally said never to things before and done them. But I am so happy where I am right now and I feel like I had such a pitch perfect career that I would be nervous about tarnishing that. I feel like it’s kind of full-circle and perfect for exactly what I wanted. But who knows?”
Furthermore on the same issue, AJ Lee (the former divas champion) was asked whether her violent childhood was a reason behind her reluctance to watch her husband CM Punk (Phil Brooks) compete in MMA, she laughed and replied:
“I think it’s a little bit of both and that’s super perceptive of you. I’ve gravitated toward action that is more of the superhero romanticized variety. Superheroes and comic books and pro wrestling where the fear is taken out of it because there’s a levity involved. With UFC it’s so real and so violent that it’s hard for me to even watch. The pay-per-views will be on in my house and I’ll pay for it and I’ll support it, but I can’t really sit down and watch it. It’s hard for me, especially with my husband. For someone who beat up people for a living I’m pretty queasy when it comes to violence for sure.”
