In Video: AJ Lee Reacts to SmackDown Beatdown

Following her three-on-one beatdown on last night’s SmackDown, WWE.com’s Backstage Fallout crew caught up with AJ Lee.

The Divas Champion admits that sometimes she doesn’t think things through – she acts on her emotions.

She paints herself as an underdog, saying that it’s always three against one on her, whether she’s in the ring with Brie Bella, Naomi and Natalya or at the commentating table.

AJ knows that it will be every woman for herself this Sunday, and she’s sure she can come out on top saying that the Divas Championship will be coming home with her.

Watch the interview below:

Do you think AJ can overcome the odds?

    Sometimes I think it’s bad when the only person that makes sense in a storyline is the heel.

    • jen07201

      I don’t think WWE has made the faces of this feud likeable

      • charovnica

        Yep.And here I have to say WWE should’ve at least air that reaction video they did after AJ’s pipe bombshell promo.

        • jen07201

          I know and they should at least have a segment explaining why Brie is suddenly teaming with Naomi and Natalya

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            Thats what the pipe bombshell was for lol.

      • xFoxylicious

        Not a surprise really.

    • Monkey Tennis

      Exactly. If this storyline had played out like a lot of people (including meself) had assumed directly after AJ’s initial promo, it would have been a more focused feud between AJ and Nattie. That would have made sense, given that Natalya is the wrestler on Total Divas who most contradicts everything that AJ said.

      If they’d wanted to play a “Total Divas can be good wrestlers too” angle, that was obviously the way to go. Instead though, it’s just been the Total Divas as one group, with no-one having an opportunity to establish themselves or gain any momentum going into the title match. As a result, if anyone other than AJ does win on Sunday, it’s unlikely that they’ll have a huge amount of support, right from the start of their title reign,

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        Natalya isnt the only contradiction of aj’s words naomi is aswell. Not only in the pipebomb saying they were there for the reality show when the main thing naomi stays worried about in the show is wrestling, but also on commentary on smackdown where she said they were all there before her but she has done more. Naomi made the main roster after aj lol.

    • xFoxylicious

      I agree with you.

    • BorisG

      I know. They didn’t build Total Divas in any way, they didn’t talk or do something special, that’s why fans are on AJ’s side.

  • DONTGETSTUNG

    lol aj i think its 4 against 3 but your posse dont back u up so its just one on 3. and she has a good point no body can win by themselves.

    • xFoxylicious

      WWE needs to make their team more tougher and badass but it won’t be like that if they keep losing. -.- This time was AJ’s fault because she got her team DQ’d but last Raw her team lost and it should not be like that. IMO.

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        So far its another divas of doom when it comes to the matches. The faces dont have to win every match to get them over.

  • jen07201

    I always wanted AJ to get a female bodyguard

    • DivasChampAJ

      Kharma!

      • Will Henderson

        if not Kharma, what about Sara Del Rey, she’s currently employed by WWE, why not make her an character on WWE TV that does what Big E Langston couldn’t do, and that’s attack the other girls to protect AJ.

    • xFoxylicious

      It would’ve been great if Anya could’ve since Kharma wasn’t there. The obvious choice would be Kharma tho.

  • DivasChampAJ

    I see blood! AJ IS TV14….

    • Will Henderson

      where was she bleeding at and where in the vid, didn’t see any blood out on AJ’s Arms or face or hand.

      • DivasChampAJ

        It was on her elbow she kept touching.

        • nadirah432

          Only a small a$$ lil scratch! She isn’t dying!

    • xFoxylicious

      I don’t think that was blood. xD

      • DivasChampAJ

        It was dry blood

        • xFoxylicious

          I need to take a closer look then!

  • ????? KING ?????

    I cant get over the fact how suddenly all the women of Total Divas are supposed to be faces now but there actions scream heel’s this storyline has done nothing but make them less likable jumping someone is such a heel tactic and goes against the whole anti bullying campaign there pushing

    • DivasChampAJ

      Like I said before its basically a Heel vs Heel feud.

      • ????? KING ?????

        Not really cause AJ is being cheered LMAO those edited boo’s on Friday sounded so stupid i hate Smackdown audibles sound like they came right from the WWE game

        • DivasChampAJ

          Right..It was likely AJ got cheers when Natayla nem got boos.

          • nadirah432

            Um she didn’t get any boos when she went for the sharpshooter!

          • DivasChampAJ

            Thats fake reaction you know that right?
            On SD those wear fake but on Raw it was her home country of course she got cheers.

          • xFoxylicious

            Wasn’t Smackdown in Canada too?

          • DivasChampAJ

            I think so.

          • xFoxylicious

            If it was then the cheers could’ve been legit but if it wasn’t then they’re fake cheers!

          • nadirah432

            I know that but still doesn’t mean she got boo’s even if they were fake!

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            Actuall the spoilerssaid natalya came out to a nice pop but not as good as aj’s.

        • xFoxylicious

          I remember watching a segment on Smackdown and Big E and AJ appeared on the screen and I swear, the boo’s were from WWE’13 LOL. They sounded so fake.

      • Will Henderson

        i think WWE should go back to the attitude era concept of everyone’s a heel, even the babyfaces are heels. i.e. the different shades of grey concept.

        • xFoxylicious

          I think that would be nice.

    • xFoxylicious

      Exactly. WWE sometimes doesn’t even know what they’re doing. -sigh-

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      Brie isnt face which is why she pulled her hand back when naomi went for the hot tag on raw and why she continues to trash talk in her matches.

      Also if aj continues to interrupt their matches after the pipe bomb what do you think is going to happen? If anything aj is the bully but the total divas are standing up to her, which is what everyone as a child that has been bullied was told to do. Imo by them standing up to aj and fighting back it makes them look like tough, fighting faces (the exact opposite of how they portrayed kelly as the underdog). Everyone wanted tough faces now we have some and all I hear is complaining that they are unlikeable. The only reason they are being hated on is because they are feuding with aj.

      • Ap

        The way WWE books heels are supposed to cowards, but Aj is not being a coward; she is standing strong against people who are not behind promoting the Divas title. The booking for total divas are like heels because they want the reality show. Plus, women and men can relate to Aj easier than anybody else

        • Angelica Marie MoNae

          Aj is claiming they dont care about the title but are instead too worried about being on a reality show, which comes across as jealousy for their newfound fame outside of wwe then she continuously attacks them midmatch, and she is always talking trash about them. Faces DO NOT do that, I repeat FACES DO NOT DO THAT! She is also delusional acting innocent like her attacking people is justifiedand the things she said Iin her pipebomb werent meant to be hurtful but to get the girls focusedon the “ddivision”when in truth aj wants the attention the total divas is getting (in character not in reality) also very heelish tendencies. No question aj and crew are heels. Total divas is mixed with the bellas and eva being heels but on a possible face turn, that running face buster brie did is a move they did when they were face and brie’s moveset lately has been a little less submissions and a few flashier moves.

        • Angelica Marie MoNae

          Also the wwe hasnt always booked their heels to be cowards. Lita, victoria, beth, jaqueline, jazz, etc. Did you ever think wwe doesnt want aj to be a coward heel but instead of a delusional one that thinks she is everything about the division(which isnt necessarily wrong lol) maybe the wwe is learninhg we dont want coward heels we want strong dominating ones whetherIits because of their strength or their manipulative smarts (aj being in the later)

  • ????? KING ?????

    Why the hell did it take so long for Layla em to do anything and the fact that the only women AJ has in her corner are the diva jobbers make it less believable this would of been the perfect time for the female shield Paige, Summer Rae and Anya imo

    • xFoxylicious

      They’re trying to use more the Divas and the only ones available were the ones that are jobbers or just not on TV. If WWE wants them to be recognized much more they need more backstage segments about their plans and etc so people can recognize them more and not say “Oh, those are the girls that always lose!”. They need more wins, segments and brawls IMO.

  • DivasChampAJ

    This can be perfect time for Bayley, Paige, and Emma to debut on mainroster.

    • ????? KING ?????

      Those 3 are the most over NXT divas right now i doubt they debut on the main roster as heels

      • DivasChampAJ

        Theyve been tweeting constantly about how TD jumps AJ.Saying “Its always 3v1 that may change soon” or some shit like that.

    • xFoxylicious

      I don’t think WWE would put Paige as a heel tho…she’s really charismatic on NXT and same thing with Emma. Bayley on the other hand….but I don’t think so either since her gimmick is like a little girl or whatever her gimmick is. xD

      • DivasChampAJ

        What happens on NXT stays on NXT.

    • BorisG

      Bayley could have storyline with AJ, like Mickie/Trish or Sable/Tori.

      • DivasChampAJ

        AJ will have to drop crazy chick.But she looks like she is dropping it.

  • http://noreallyitstrue.wordpress.com/ AdrianRay

    I just don’t understand the appeal in this painfully one-sided feud. No substance, the Total Divas haven’t spoken out against AJ (and made sense) once.

    • ????? KING ?????

      Right no promo no interview no segment nothing guess we will have to wait to watch the next half of Total Divas to hear all about AJ

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        They have had a couple of backstage segments they didnt air on tv I dont think but they had them. The one right after aj’s pipebomb and natalya got one when she got thethwin in the 6 divas tag match on raw.

        Granted they definitely need more backstage segments and they actually need to air on tv because if you dont check sites like this everyday you may not have seen them. The last feud wasnt perfect but it was better and more entertaining than most of the feuds we have had in years, along with eve/kaitlyn. This feud is still better than most of the feuds we have had with the divas recently. You cant expect them to just suddenly do everything perfect out of nowhere. It takes work, creative is doing better at least tgey are coming up with good ideas for feuds they just havent figured out how to execute them all the way through yet lol.

    • xFoxylicious

      This feud needs more Non-Total Divas winning, brawling, segments with both teams… it’s only been TD attacking AJ and the other just being knocked out or just don’t do anything at all but drag her out. :/

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      Naomi: I beat her on nxt I dont know if she remembers (total sense)

      Bella twins: you rode the coat tales of all the superstars to get to the top (total sense)

      Natalya: she should judge me by my character not the shoes I wear (total sense)
      She may have the title but im a champion so she better give that belt all the kisses she can, take it to the park for a walk whatever because this sunday she wont have that. (Total sense)

      Now of course those are all paraphrased a little and not exact words because i havent seen the promos or segments since they came out but its the jist of it. All of those thungs are true, except the part about aj not having th belt come sunday that may or may not be true we dont know yet, and all of them make sense. So your point of saying ” they havent spoken out (and made sense) a single time” is what doesnt make sense!

      • Ap

        The thing is that Aj said to their faces not behind their backs like they are saying it behind her back, not one of them can say to her face because they know she is right and speaking the truth. Plus, all of them sounded so scripted and boring because we heard the say thing; it makes them sound stupid and they dont have anything new or interesting to say

        • Angelica Marie MoNae

          Maybe to yoy but not to everyone. Everything about that promo was good go look at the comments there were alot more positives than negatives. The only negatives usually came from the aj stans that hate she isnt on total divas even though she doesnt even want to be.

      • DivasChampAJ

        No, that never came on TV and most people didnt see that so that dont count.Untill they actually go on the stage and confront AJ this will be a feud.

        • Angelica Marie MoNae

          But they still happened is what im saying. I agree the total divas seriously need promos that actually appear on television if they want them to get over with the crowd. We know the reason is obviouswhy they are reactingthe way they are but we still want and need to hear how they feel to make us and the wwe universe care.

  • Whalenx

    I’m rooting for Natalya, but if not, Aj. I think Paige would be an awesome next challenger.

    • DivasChampAJ

      Paige v AJ would do wonders fir the division.

      • xFoxylicious

        And the crowd would be really behind the feud.

        • DivasChampAJ

          Yep..Paige and Emma are the only Face divas the crowd seems too care about.

          • xFoxylicious

            Exactly. Everyone loves their characters. I wanna see Summer Rae having her debut match. I wanna see if they crowd starts Fandango-ing. xD

          • DivasChampAJ

            xD I just know they will..Summer might have his entrance.

          • xFoxylicious

            Yes! The crowd would definitely get behind Summer!

          • DivasChampAJ

            Ye

      • Whalenx

        And everyone already loves Paige! So she’d be SO over with everyone.

        • DivasChampAJ

          Paige and Emma are the only faces who gets a decent pop.

          • Whalenx

            I honestly can’t wait for Emma. I love Paige, but there’s something more about Emma that I love.

    • Antoine Wilson

      that feud would be EPIC!

      • Whalenx

        Of course!

    • xFoxylicious

      This would be awesome!

  • I dig CrayJ

    ”Okay maybe sometimes I don’t think things out” her expressions were beyond perfection there,she’s hilarious!

    • DivasChampAJ

      I know I am hilarious.

    • xFoxylicious

      I loved that line! LOL

  • Lilreuche ?

    Who are the faces? WWE needs to get their shit together.

    • xFoxylicious

      Apparently, the faces are Brie (tweener I guess), Natalya and Naomi but they’re getting boo’ed because of AJ’s awesomeness.

      • DivasChampAJ

        Yeah Brie is tweener.

        • xFoxylicious

          I hope Brie and Nikki turn face!

      • nadirah432

        No they aren’t getting boo’ed!

  • Jay R

    I kinda want Charlotte, Natalya and Raquel to debut as a female stable of Legacy. They can exclude Tamina and talk about how her father did nothing for the WWE.

    • Irish_fan

      That would be great. Tamina works much better as a face and then Charlotte or Naty could eventually turn face and team with Tamina :)

      • xFoxylicious

        Tamina works much better as a face!

        • Irish_fan

          I know. If she does become face maybe she will stop talking about making statments and actually make one xD

          • DivasChampAJ

            Dead!

          • xFoxylicious

            LOOOL

        • BorisG

          She has the charisma of her father.

    • xFoxylicious

      This would be awesome! Raquel can be the mic girl, Natalya the powerhouse and technical one and Charlotte the agile and athletic one!

  • Cesaro’sWifeyEM.

    Gurl can cut a promo ;) #AJFan

    • DivasChampAJ

      #AJ

    • xFoxylicious

      AJ slays.

  • Irish_fan

    I love AJ she could cut a promo anbout anything and make it sound real. I remember when she cut a promo about caffeine on NXT for a challenge and she won. She has proved she can go on the mic but now the total divas need to prove it. They need an interview or some sort of segment where they diss AJ and say why they deserve the title. I hope AJ retains and that they make the feud better because it has potential to be great. I’m just happy that it hasn’t been announced as a lumberjill match …..yet xD

    • xFoxylicious

      I actually like Lumberjills because they always brawl. xD I love Divas brawls. ;)

      • DivasChampAJ

        Right hopefully it be good brawls though!

        • xFoxylicious

          Yes and not a slopfest. xD

      • BorisG

        And Jerry always gets excited.

    • DivasChampAJ

      Lumberjills are actually fun!

  • DivasChampAJ

    Lmao @FoxyLicious trying to be DD champion by replying to everybodym

          • xFoxylicious

            That’s if you can beat me!

            AJ Lee music hits:Lets light it up, Light it up, light it up…
