Why AJ Lee Quit the WWE. Well she didn’t really quit but rather “retired.” That is the question on the mind of wrestling fans this past week. Forgive me those of you who don’t subscribe to the soap opera fanatics that is professional wrestling.
Former Divas (Female) champion abruptly retired after Wrestlemania (the biggest event of the year for the company). Some have speculated that since coming back, the WWE didn’t have a plan for her storyline and other’s that the travel schedule became difficult on the newlywed and she wanted to spend more time with her husband and also former WWE Champion, CM Punk who quit the company last year. Unlike Punk’s departure from the company where little to no mention was made, the company posted a message on their website and brought it up on air which means that the departure was amicable.
Typically this type of departure is due to continued injury (ala Edge) or in a rare case, for a female wrestler, pregnancy (ala Kharma). Given that the departure seemed on good terms, can it be that AJ is actually retiring because of CM’s sPUNK? (ok that is gross but oh too fitting with that name)
