AJ Lee Discusses If She’d Return To The Wrestling Ring

AJ Lee

Former WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee has discussed a potential return to the ring after it was announced she has returned to the world of wrestling.

It was recently announced that AJ Lee is returning to pro wrestling as an Executive Producer and colour commentator for the rebooted Women Of Wrestling promotion. The news was broken by WOW Superheroes on social media with Lee attending a press conference to discuss her new role.

The promotion recently made headlines when it unveiled former IMPACT Wrestling World Champion Tessa Blanchard as the ‘face of the company.’

Speaking on the WOW Superheroes YouTube channel AJ Lee discussed if fans should expect to see her don her Converse sneakers and enter the ring again:

“I will say, I say the same thing in every interview, and it’s always ‘never say never, but don’t hold your breath.’ What I mean by that is, I never say never to anything; physically, mentally, emotionally, I’m healed from everything I’ve gone through in wrestling. I could technically do it, but I’m so enjoying letting the next generation have their spotlight. I got to do everything I wanted to do. So, it really would have to be, is that challenge there? I don’t think the girls need me there. I think that they are going to take over the world all by themselves.”

AJ Lee last competed in the wrestling ring in March 2015 when she teamed with Naomi and Paige to defeat Natalya and The Bella Twins. At one point Lee had been the longest reigning WWE Divas Champion in history before hanging up her Converse. Lee’s husband and former WWE Champion CM Punk poured cold water over a potential return to the ring for AJ Lee shortly after his AEW debut.
