As we noted before, Former WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee retired from in-ring competition in WWE. There was a lot of speculation as to why AJ retired and one of the reason given for this was that she might be pregnant.
However, latest reports suggest that AJ decided to part ways with WWE when WWE’s Dr. Chris Amann filed a lawsuit against her husband, former WWE Champion CM Punk, for defamation.
AJ Lee had to call her departure a retirement so as to get out of her WWE contract. By retiring, she would have forfeited the chance to perform anywhere else in pro-wrestling or other sports, at least for the remainder of the contract.
