On Tuesday, CM Punk tweeted that he would love to see Bayley, Sasha Banks, Kairi Sane, Asuka and Rhe Ripley on WWE Backstage. Punk has talked about how his favorite part of WWE is what the women are doing.
The tweet from Punk promoted a fan to ask if his wife AJ Mendez (AJ Lee) would appear on the show. AJ responded and made it clear that she is “very retired.”
So, for anyone holding out hope for one more AJ Lee match, it doesn’t look like that will happen. AJ retired from in-ring action due to physical issues. Specifically, she discovered that she had permanent damage to her cervical spine. She has already moved on to a different phase of her life and appears to be happy with never wrestling again.
As you can see below, she is open to tagging along to hang out with Paige and others whenever she’s in the Los Angeles area.
For CM Punk fans, the door is slightly open for him to return if he gets the right offer. At last word, he had not spoken with anyone in WWE so it doesn’t look like a return (if it ever happens) is imminent.
