WWE Divas: AJ Lee Leaving Like CM Punk? ‘You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone’ [Video]
Will we the see the WWE Diva, AJ Lee, leaving like her husband, CM Punk, soon? A cryptic comment made during the recent match between Nikki Bella and Alicia Fox has everyone guessing what is going through her head.
[Update] The WWE officially announced AJ Lee’s retirement and in our latest article we discuss the possibility of a future UFC career for April Mendez.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Joe Rogan admitted that he could not take on CM Punk in the UFC due to drugs issues, although former Major League Baseball all star Jose Conseco declared he would beat the younger man at MMA. Phil Brooks also admitted recently that he finds CM Punk chants targeting AJ Lee “uncomfortable” and he laid down the rules for when it’s appropriate to yell out his name at live events.
During the WWE Divas match, AJ Lee joined the announce team only to make an interesting comment that could be interpreted as a hint that she may be leaving some time in the near future.
“I feel like you guys aren’t asking me enough questions while I’m out here,” she said. “You’re going to miss me when I’m gone.”
There are multiple ways to interpret this comment. It could be simply that she was hoping the announcers would work with her more and she was joking about them missing her once she left the table. The other possibility is that AJ Lee is fully aware of all the WWE rumors flying around and she purposefully made the comment just to throw fuel onto the fire.
The other possibility is that the rumor mill managed to nail this one and AJ Lee really is retiring some time after the WWE TLC event this year and she has been dropping subtle hints the entire way. After all, when she spoke during Monday Night RAW’s Slammy Awards about winning the WWE Diva Of The Year award she seemed to indicate she would not be with the WWE a year from now.
“Three years ago I promised all of you I would redefine the term diva, and I am very proud to say I sure have done that. So I hope that means that next year this award is won by Bailey or Sasha, or Charlotte or Emma, or Paige. Any of those girls can be next in line for the throne, but I’m not done being queen.”
AJ Lee’s WWE contract does not expire until 2015 so it’s possible if that she plans on retiring then she will wait until everyone sees how CM Punk does in his MMA fights. If he turns out to be a success, then financially the married couple are more than set and CM Punk and AJ Lee can happily go skipping away from the WWE together without having to worry.
Do you think AJ Lee is hinting at retiring from the WWE? Or do you think she’s simply messing with everyone’s heads?
