BREAKING: AJ Lee (April Mendez) has decided to retire from in-ring competition with WWE. We wish AJ the very best.

After all the unpleasantness that occurred between CM Punk and the WWE, the next question we asked ourselves was "what is going to happen to AJ Lee?" Well, we finally have our answer. In a tweet that seemingly came out of left field, the WWE announced on their twitter account that AJ Lee decided to retire from the WWE. We'd be lying if we said we didn't expect AJ to leave the company, as her and her husband's issues seemingly became too much. Apart from the spat between Punk and the WWE, Lee had been growing frustrated with the Divas role on the show, even going as far as bashing Stephanie McMahon on Twitter (which you can see here). Speculation will mount about what she may do in her future and we'll be sure to keep you posted when we get more information!
Update: NXT Diva Bayley may have hinted through an Instagram/Twitter post last weekend as to why AJ is retiring. In the picture, she's holding AJ's stomach. Could this mean we could expect a little CM Punk crawling around next year?
