AJ Lee retires

  1. Seems kind of sudden. And wow, that's short. Didn't she just win back the Divas title at WM, or something like that?
     
  2. InB4 all the hate.

    It's a shame that WWE are losing one of the few divas that can wrestle.

  3. This seems a bit out of the blue. Shame, she used to be one of the very few divas I cared about.

    Best of luck in whatever you decide to do next, AJ. (and my guess is have kids with Punk, so good luck to both of you)
     
  4. Divas title isn't defended at mania
     
  5. She's probably preggo, otherwise it wouldn't be so out of the blue (even though it has been rumoured since Punk left)
     
  6. Ahhh, good point. I forgot the obvious, haha. Guess it was just her winning the match I saw on the results.
     
  7. you got that right. She did win her match at Rollinsmania

  9. Good riddance.. She's finally gone.

    It's been 5 year's.. 5 year's too long.

  10. How ironic would it be if the wwe universe finally started chanting "Aj" instead of "Cm punk"at the divas matches now that she's gone?
     
  11. That's odd. Well, I'll miss her.
     
  12. "Your female wrestlers have record selling merchandise and have starred in the highest rated segment in the show several times, and yet they receive a fraction of the wages and screen time of the majority of the male roster. #UseYourVoice" was the tweet that AJ made about a month or so ago and now it seems that in the mind of the McMahons, it's come back to get her, and because of that, I personally believe that she was fired for that, that she will continue wrestling but with another company, and that she was only brought back two weeks later so she could have one more WrestleMania match and then after that, get rid of her. It's like the Jim Ross situation two years ago, they posted on WWE.com that he retired. In reality, he was fired for not stopping Ric Flair's loose cannon at SummerSlam Axxess. Stephanie was obviously furious about AJ's Twitter rant. Which brings me to the theory that she got fired. Come on now. We all or at least should know that WWE has been known to punish those who speak out about things sooner or later.
     
  13. So between the main roster and NxT WWE now has about 6, maybe 7 female wrestlers with legitimate in-ring talent.. They need at least 10 between the 2 brands if the divas division is going to survive.
     
  14. Vince has always been a big fan of AJ and was supposedly the one who instructed Stephanie to respond to the tweet in a professional manner, so I don't know. Plus, they would have likely had AJ do the job at Wrestlemania before showing her the door instead of putting over over with the victory if this were the case.

    I'm kinda disappointed since AJ was the main Diva on the roster that I cared about (and one of the very few Divas that I care about period), so on one hand it's kind of a shame, but on the other hand it opens up an opportunity for someone else to step up.
     
  15. It's all a bit sudden so yh "retired"
     
  16. :notsure: Seems fishy to me. But really things just go back to how they were about 2-3 weeks ago. Disappointed we won't get to see AJ vs Charlotte
     
  17. I was hoping for that myself. Not sure if there's an acceptable substitute at the moment.
     
  18. Paige and Natalya, possibly Naomi, are the only ones on the main roster that could realistically compete with Charlotte right now.. The Bella twins would be in way over their heads, unfortunately Nikki has the belt at the moment so we shall see.
