CM Punk comments on potential AEW match for AJ Lee

Ever since CM Punk joined AEW, fans have been speculating whether AJ Mendez (former WWE star AJ Lee) would be making her in-ring return as well in the same promotion that her husband was in.

Dr. Britt Baker previously said that she would love to see Lee in a wrestling ring again. Punk previously stated that Lee wouldn’t be returning to wrestling due to her history of neck problems. 

While doing an interview with ESPN SportsNation, Punk was asked about the possibility of a match where he would team up with his wife to take on the real-life couple of Adam Cole and Baker.

“That one I can’t promise you. She is doing her own thing. To be completely honest, I know her and if I said, ‘Hey, you want to do this wrestling match?’, and if she was all gung-ho to do it, I know she would want to get into stupid shape to do it, and I like her thick. So I don’t want to take that away from myself.”

Production recently wrapped up on Netflix’s “Blade of the 47 Ronin” movie that was co-written by Lee. The former WWE Divas Champion hasn’t wrestled since 2015. You can watch the entire interview by clicking on the player below:
