AJ Lee Gets Rave Reviews, CM Punk Banged Up

AJ Lee Gets Rave Reviews

AJ Lee got very high marks for her promo on this week's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw. There were a lot of people raving about her delivery and how realistic it came off. CM Punk called it a "#pipebombshell" on Twitter.

CM Punk Banged Up

Speaking of CM Punk, his back was busted up following his match against Curtis Axel.

We'll have more notes from Raw later.

    In terms of generating a reaction…that promo certainly did so. I’m sure as a heel she’d probably like it if they booed her instead of cheered her but…considering it’s a challenge to even get a reaction some days…I think she and the management’ll take it.

    • Gary Robert

      Who says it was a heel promo? Seemed like a tweener promo to me. Punk’s promo in June 2011 was a heel promo and it caused a 180 degree character turn for him. This seems very similar. Give AJ the mic again and lets see if she can deliver again.

      • Lebron James

        Why are you people trying to bring your hero Punk into AJ’s promo. Punk’s promo from 2 years ago has nothing to do with AJ’s promo. Punk’s time has come & gone. Time for Punk fans to let it go.

        • Lebron James

          Whoa dude, trying to steal my gimmick, haha? At least put Lebron James #2 in your name or something. I don’t want my opinions being confused with yours. Just saying. Be creative! You can be Chris Bosh, no one is using that one.

          • Lebron James #3


  • Jack

    AJ did a great job and proved she can cut a promo better than 95% of the roster, male and female.

    • Justin Lal

      It was better than Daniel Bryan’s opening promo.

      • Nick K

        Yea it was, also better than anything Cena has done in a long time, but hey we don’t expect you to say that seeing how you any credibility and are nothing more than a hater/troll.

  • Foreveryoungx

    “No matter how much money you spend on your 4000 ridiculous heels you will never be able to lace up my chuck taylor’s” promo was amazing.

  • Jaryd

    I loved her promo, I DVR’d Raw and fast forwarded through the (Total) divas match but had to skip back when i saw AJ come out. I haven’t cared a jot about the divas division since Mickie James left and to be fair a large portion of it is still the same old rubbish but AJ is in there keeping it real!!

    The problem, though, is that I don’t really think she can save the Divas division by herself, it’s just her going out there delivering A+ promos against girls who have no discernable talent in most cases. I think her talents, until they get more better talented, charasmatic women in the division, would be best served by interjecting her in another main event angle. You could even use her as a mouthpiece manager for someone who’s not so good on the stick.

    • Steve-dave

      As if you rewound when aj came out, you heard about it online and went back and watched it

      • Jaryd

        No… Ive always liked AJ and make sure i watch what she does when she’s on tv because she’s good… But well done for trying to contribute…

        • Gary Robert

          She is good. She’s easily the most talented Diva in terms of acting ability, facial expressions, her eyes. She also has the best finisher I’ve seen out of a girl…maybe ever. That Black Widow submission is a great move and unique. She did some great stuff back before the run as GM and this was just a great promo all around. I’ve never seen that delivered from a diva before.

  • Nostaljack

    AJ did an *amazing* job. The other divas, however, really need to work on their reactions. They were absolutely putrid.

    • Fluttershy

      Yeah, Bellas and whatever the red head girl’s name is yelling “Say it to our face!” non-stop, when she indeed WAS saying it to their faces was really taking away from the otherwise great promo. Natalya seemed like the only one in the group selling the promo well.

      • Scott Davies

        Well Natalya does work well & out of all the Divas who was talked down to by AJ. Natalya is a great technical Wrestler

  • Lebron James

    That was an amazing promo. You know you’re cutting a great promo when the crowds starts cheering for you as a heel! AJ Lee bleeds wrestling, she’s a once in a lifetime diva. I’m glad she’s getting appreciation for her work. Aj is the complete package, she’s on her way to becoming one of the best divas to lace em up.

    • Scott Davies

      AJ has been cheered all along, I think WWE is going to turn her face. I still think her match at Payback with Kaitlyn was the best Diva’s match this year. So AJ claiming to working hard. Well the proof is there

  • David

    Maybe this could lead to Kharma coming back to help AJ destroy all the Total Divas. Especially the Bellas!

    • thepowerserge

      Bring back Kharma, Phoenix and any other woman who can WRESTLE. Hell, I’d watch a women’s match again if they’d bring back any woman who wants to BE back (i.e. Victoria, Jacqueline etc.). And please, please, PLEASE get rid of (or better yet), blow up or otherwise destroy the Diva’s “championship.” Bring back the Women’s Championship!

  • thepowerserge

    Punk took the words right out of my mouth. #PipeBombshell indeed. Well played, sir.

    • Danny_Boy

      Why is Punk d*/k riding off of AJ’s great promo

      • Big D

        Because wrestlers have never recognized each other’s greatness before…

      • Gary Robert


  • Harlie Boucher

    It was a good promo, just wish you couldn’t hear the Bella’s yelling in the background the whole time.

  • K!NG

    it wasnt a pipe bomb…. she was saying things everyone who watched total divas could see… she said things everyone already knew…. she delivered what she said perfectly but this whole pipebomb thing is being overly stated….
