AJ Lee has left the WWE, it has been announced.
The wrestling company made the announcement moments ago on their website, writing, ‘AJ Lee (April Mendez) has decided to retire from in-ring competition with WWE. We wish AJ the very best.’
The tone of the message suggests that the WWE diva is quitting ring action for a corporate position in the company … after all, she was once the General Manager of Monday Night Raw. But given that her husband, former WWE star CM Punk, claimed he was fired by the company on their wedding day, one can’t help but assume that he played a key role in her decision to quit.
AJ Lee made her first debut in a WWE ring in 2010.
