The WWE universe was shocked when CM Punk returned to the company at Survivor Series after ten years away from WWE. AJ Lee, who is also Punk’s wife, has had her fair share of limelight with the company, and since her husband returned fans are speculating the same for her.
The 36-year-old superstar was featured in a number of main event segments on the red brand of WWE and has even won the Divas championship three times in her career. AJ Lee’s been in talks after it was revealed the former Divas Champion might make a comeback.
Is AJ Lee coming back on WWE Day 1?
AJ Lee, also known as April Jeanette Mendez, departed from WWE in April 2015 due to some issues concerning her wellbeing. She left a few months after her husband CM Punk left the company in 2014. The rumors of her returning in 2024 have been running rampant since the ‘Best in the World’ mentioned her in a promo. Fans want the superstar to make a legendary comeback and lead the women’s division like she did in her time.
The Chief Content Officer of WWE Triple H shared a cryptic message on Twitter, and fans are wondering if its referring to AJ.
Recently, a clip was also shared on social media where both AJ and Punk were seen training inside the ring. The clip is 26 seconds long and shows the skills and maneuvers Lee uses during the spar. The caption read, “AJ Lee posted this clip of her helping out the up-and-coming wrestler CM Punk”.
WWE RAW: Day 1 at the Pechanga Arena in San Diego, California, on January 1st, 2024, is all set to feature some big matches for the new year. The event features a WWE World Heavyweight Title match between Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre and a WWE Women’s World Championship match between Rhea Ripley and Ivy Nile. If AJ Lee were to return to the next big event of WWE, it would be to face the ‘Nightmare’ of Judgement Day.
Why did AJ Lee leave WWE?
AJ Lee made her main roster debut in May 2011, and her athleticism, charisma, and mike skills captured the WWE fan’s attention instantly. The superstar is often compared to the likes of Trish Stratus and Lita; both women are Hall of Famers and are some of the most iconic female wrestlers in the company’s history.
Lee shocked the WWE universe after it was announced that she would retire from wrestling. Fans were left devastated after the announcement, as AJ was the face of the diva’s division, and without her things would change. The superstar had a lot of memorable moments during her time, like the Divas Championship feud with Kaitlyn, which is one of the greatest rivalries to date.
It is believed that the 36-year-old superstar left due to some injuries she sustained during a match with the former WWE superstar Paige for the WWE Divas Championship in the summer of 2014. The superstar even addressed this issue on her personal Twitter/X account and shed some light on how much suffering she had to go through at that time.
AJ’s impact on the women’s division is undeniable, and fans are eagerly waiting for the superstar to return to WWE. Things are intense on the women’s roster as a lot of formidable opponents are now available, and a potential match between AJ Lee and them will be a sight to remember.
