On this day in history:

July 15th, 2012 | AJ Lee had been spurned by both CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, so the drama was amped up to 11 when she was appointed guest referee for their No DQ WWE Championship match. A replacement referee had to be issued when AJ was accidently knocked off the ring apron by Punk, but she reappeared near the end of the match, tossing a steel chair into the ring to liven things up. The culmination of the match saw Punk send Bryan through a table from the top rope. AJ counted the pin, but seemed especially reluctant to do so.

What are your memories of this moment?

    This was a pretty big deal for a female to be the special ref for the WWE Champipnship at a ppv.AJ Lee had a good year in 2012 can’t say the same for the divas division….

    This was the ‘Summer of AJ’. 2012 was a great year for her. She surrounded herself with top talent and instantly became one herself. Also, the early days of ‘Yes’ movement. Makes me miss both of them in WWE.
