Your Two Cents: Writing the End of the AJ Storyline

“Your Two Cents” is our interactive feature where we gauge the opinions of our Twitter and Facebook followers on different discussions in women’s wrestling.

This week, we’re asking this: Tell us how you would write the end of the AJ/CM Punk/Daniel Bryan/Kane storyline. We’ve read your responses on our social media pages and picked some of the best submissions to highlight here on the website. As always, you can join the debate by leaving your comments!

Our Two Cents

Batting for Team DD this week, it’s Cryssi giving us her personal opinion on this week’s topic:

Cryssi: It’s been incredibly hard for me to hide my feelings on this storyline as I’m clearly TeamAJBryan. In my mind, AJ and Kane have come to an end. He brushed her off and her reaction at the end leads me to believe that AJ is okay with not having Kane around. He played his part and now he’s been eliminated as a threat to the WWE Championship. That leaves us with Daniel Bryan and the champ himself, CM Punk. AJ’s recent celebration a la DB and her match dedication to CM Punk is quite confusing. But what I have said all along and I will say again, it’s all a ruse between AJ and Daniel Bryan. I would have it where they’ve never broken up. They used the ‘Kiss of Death’ to come up with a plan to get Daniel Bryan a championship again.

Come Money in The Bank I would absolutely have AJ screw CM Punk out of the title and celebration with Daniel Bryan on the stage. I see him holding up the championship belt, and AJ wrapped in his other arm. They could kiss while an infuriated CM Punk watches all of this unfold before his very eyes. It’s the perfect way to make AJ a huge heel and it would be a great catapult to launch her into a kick ass feud with babyface Layla. The next night on Raw, I would have the new golden couple of the WWE reveal that everything post-WrestleMania has been a plan all along, I’d put the Diva’s Championship on AJ that very night with her getting help from her man, and I would have the two of them raise hell all over the company until Survivor Series. I think that would be pretty brilliant.

Your Two Cents

Andrew C. Kunzeman | I would write it as AJ choosing Punk and winning the Divas Championship in the process from Layla at Money In The Bank. They would be this decade’s HHH and Stephanie McMahon or like Edge and Lita were.
Dan Tomlinson | I read before someones idea of putting AJ with Dean Ambrose in a kind of Joker/Harley Quinn relationship! I would have her side with Daniel at the PPV and cost Punk the title! Then in a rematch with AJ banned from ring, after weeks of Daniel Bryan treated AJ like crap still, in comes Ambrose to attack them both! AJ would then reveal Ambrose to be one of the voice she speaks too and then the inmates start running the asylum! Muhahaha.
Eric Holt | At Money in the Bank, AJ will be the special referee for the WWE Championsip Match between CM Punk and Daniel Bryan. I would want the feud to end by having Kane come out and chokeslam both CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, cover them both, and have AJ count the pinfall and have Kane announced as the new WWE Champion and declare that Kane was a last minute edition to the match, and her and Kane had planned this out before the match. They reveal that they’ve been planning to screw over Punk and Daniel. They share a passionate kiss in the middle of the ring, making them an official couple.
Josue Guzman | Two weeks ago we saw AJ skip around the ring dressed up as Kane. This week we saw AJ pull a Daniel Bryan by chanting “Yes! Yes! Yes!” after winning the Summer Battle Royal. How about next week we see AJ pull a page out Punk’s book? Perhaps having a singles match next week, having AJ use some of Punk’s moveset and wins the match by using his Go To Sleep. Or perhaps a single match where AJ dominates then afterwards give a specch as to why she is the best in the world.

The following week on Raw cut to a promo showing AJ’s irratic behavior in recent weeks. WWE officials worry about AJ so they bring in a psychologist who diagnosis AJ with a multiple personality disorder (Each personality being the different girlfriends of Punk/Kane/Bryan). AJ is then written off screeen in order to recieve “treatment” but returns a few weeks shy of Summer Slam. It has already been announced that there will be a Triple Threat match for the WWE Championship between Punk, Bryan and Kane but the psychologist recommends to WWE officials that AJ be the guest referee as it will be the final step in “curing” AJ. Who ever is victorious will be because of AJ and that is who she ends up being with.

@MissPunkin24 | How I would end the love square? I would have AJ cost Punk the championship at MITB and rejoin Daniel Bryan. The two can say that they set up this plan from the beginning. The plan to play Punk until they could get the title off of him, Kane was just a random interference.

I would follow up MITB with a Divas title match at RAW. Have DB at ringside and have AJ beat Layla for the title. It would help build AJ and it would establish Layla as a face better with her chasing the title then holding it. Then I would have it where Punk is pissed he got played. He would request his rematch at Summerslam in a ladder match. AJ can interfere and aid DB in his victory, thus leaving Punk without another shot at the title. In the end, I would make sure the story ends with Bryan and AJ as a heel power couple, holding the WWE & Divas Championship.

@RaTeD_RMN | I would have AJ try to help Punk retain at No Way Out but “accidentally” helps Bryan win the title then she turns heel and sides with Bryan during Punk/Bryan rematch.
@tOxiiiC_AnGel | AJ & Bryan were on the same page since day one. They attack CM Punk, then Lita shows up to help him. CM Punk & Lita vs AJ & Bryan.

And now we turn it over to you…
