• CM Punk Explains Why AJ Lee Will Not Join AEW
When CM Punk recently joined Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling, a lot of fans wondered how long it will take till his real-life wife April Mendez, better known as former WWE Diva AJ Lee, joins her husband in AEW.
During an interview with the New York Post, CM Punk addressed those rumors for the first time.
Here’s what he had to say:
“I just want to say, no. Just because [of] her neck. The reason she stopped wrestling is because of her neck. She’s got a bad neck, you know. I wouldn’t want her to jeopardize [her] health and neither would she, so we’ll put an end to that rumor right now.”
Speaking of AJ Lee, she appeared on the MOSTe Girls video podcast, and said the following about her pro-wrestling career:
“Oh my God. [Wrestling] was the most fun ever, besides all the injuries. But, I, along with loving comic books and escapism and fantastical worlds, wrestling was one of those things that made me feel safe when my environment and reality was anything but, and I could live vicariously through these characters that were real-life superheroes in spandex and it was such a saving grace for me as a kid.
I was 13 years old and I said, ‘I’m going to do that one day’ and I’m very stubborn and I just did it when I was 18, about 19. I had gone to school for film and television and I couldn’t afford it and so, let me follow my other passion and then when I retired, that then led me to following my other passion of film and TV so, to me it all starts in childhood and what you think is possible and having commitments.”
