After adding CM Punk to the cast of WWE Backstage, it didn’t take long for rumors to swirl that his wife, AJ Lee might get involved.
Lee, like the former WWE Superstar who hasn’t been a part of the WWE landscape for some time, is one of the more popular Superstars of WWE’s past and there’s an appetite to see her return. While she seemed content to stay out of the spotlight, it appears the possibility of her coming back to wrestling got a lot more likely after some back-and-forth interaction between the former WWE Diva and WWEonFox social media.
AJ took to Twitter and sarcastically asked if she missed anything. Of course, the tweet was meant as joke considering the biggest news in the wrestling industry this past week was her husband’s return. WWEonFox responded with, “Not much.”
The jovial exchange has added fuel to the fire that Fox might have interest in bringing in Lee to analyze Women’s wrestling matches and lot like Punk is being brought in to provide his insight on the overall product. There has been no confirmation Lee has any interest in taking on that kind of role.
Makes Sense But Probably Too Soon
Its a logical connection for Lee to be associated with the recent addition of CM Punk to the panel but don’t expect it to happen, at least not anytime soon. Fans need to get used to the idea that Punk is back before adding names and faces associated to him.
And, while AJ Lee was popular, it’s the connection to Punk that fans arguably wanted to see rekindled.
At this point, take this as nothing more than a little fun between the two sides. There are probably no plans to take the next step at this point.
