Coming out of last night’s announcement about the revival of WOW Wrestling on ViacomCBS affiliates some fans are asking why AJ Mendez (AJ Lee) will not be wrestling for the promotion.
It was announced by the promotion that Mendez would be on board as an executive producer and she will be doing commentary alongside David McLane. She will not be wrestling.
Last month, when CM Punk was asked about Mendez possibly wrestling in AEW, he explained why it can’t happen.
Punk told the New York Post, “Just because [of] her neck. The reason she stopped wrestling is because of her neck. She’s got a bad neck, you know. I wouldn’t want her to jeopardize [her] health and neither would she, so we’ll put an end to that rumor right now.”
So if you are holding out hope to see her back in the wrestling ring, it doesn’t look like that is in the cards.
As noted last night, WOW Wrestling announced that they have been picked up by ViacomCBS and Synclair affiliates to air in weekend syndication. That means that the show will air in various timeslots around the country, similar to ROH.
