AJ Lee‘s name has come up a lot recently, especially regarding AEW. Lee’s husband CM Punk made his return to wrestling after a seven-year hiatus, which left fans asking if her comeback was also on the cards.
Lee reacted to Punk’s emphatic comeback soon after she began trending Twitter too. Fans flooded the social media platform with messages wanting and wishing her to follow suit.
AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker echoed fan’s sentiments when she appeared at Planet Comicon in Kansas City last week. Speaking during a panel Baker was asked about the possibility of AJ Lee returning in AEW.
Here’s what Baker said:
“I was a big AJ Lee fan. One of the first moves I asked my trainer to teach me when I was training was her finisher, the Black Widow. So, that would be really cool.
Again, it’s giving the fans what they want. I think the fans to see both of them (Punk & Lee) in a wrestling ring again in 2021, let alone in one that is not in WWE it’s evolutionary. That would be such a moment. So, for the moment alone, I would love to see her back in the ring. I would love to see her in the ring with me.”
AJ Lee retired from wrestling in 2015 after a record-breaking Divas Championship run in WWE. Since her departure from wrestling, she became an author and advocate for mental health awareness and animal welfare.
