Why is AJ Lee so in demand?
Though her wrestling career is well in her rear view mirror, the WWE Universe is the clingy ex-girlfriend that just keeps leaving voicemails.
From fans, talent to (seemingly) the company itself, ahead of the upcoming all women's pay-per-view, WWE Evolution, fans have been clamoring for an appearance of some sort from iconic three-time Divas Champion, AJ Lee. AJ, now known professionally as AJ Mendez (her real name) has been working in promotion of her New York Times best-selling memoir, Crazy is My Superpower, and as a mental health advocate since leaving WWE in 2015.
Names such as Raw Women's Champion Nikki Bella, Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins and a WWE.com poll that was posted across all of WWE's social media pages had fans salivating at the idea, to which AJ has yet to really respond, it being understood that her stance towards the company hadn't really changed despite some fond memories.
So, this begs the question: why is the demand for AJ so high? Do fans not have closure due to the abruptness of her departure? Has it been recognized that she is of more worth than frequent returnees and company acknowledged "GOATs" such as Trish Stratus or Lita? Is the larger demand outside of our women's wrestling forum due moreover to her marriage to disgraced UFC fighter CM Punk? Or can no other girl compete where they don't compare? Or rather compare where she no longer competes?
Additionally, is this outward desire above all other choices productive as it pertains to booking potential returnees for Evolution? Would it be better for fans to put eggs in a basket still open?
Today in History, August 26, 2013: A Much Deserved New One #PipeBombshell
August 26, 2013, AJ Lee TORE the Divas Division A Much Deserved New One!
August 26, 2013, the beacon of light for during that time AJ Lee tore the diva's division a much deserved new one. Shocked and confused as to why AJ turned down the opportunity to become a cast member of the hit reality show Total Divas, Vince granted AJ the opportunity to explain herself LIVE on Raw where she delivered one of the most bone-chilling DIVAS promos of all time which was named soon after the Pipe-Bombshell.
Let's take a moment to reflect on this historic moment that will forever be in the books as one of the greatest promos of all time.
