I have been waiting for AJ Lee’s WWE return but have been hearing rumors all over that she is pregnant. Are these rumors true and if not, when is she planned to make her return?
I was under the impression that AJ Lee would be back to WWE television some time this summer before SummerSlam in August. I’ve been told throughout her hiatus she remains in good standing with WWE and has remained in constant communication. With both Emma and Paige coming off to the office as “disappointments,” it’s only raised the stock of AJ Lee.
As for the pregnancy rumor, one of the last texts I received before going on vacation last week was that AJ was possibly pregnant but that my source “wasn’t touching it.” Apparently while I was gone someone got on ReddIt and decided to inform the world. I have no idea if it’s true or not and the only reason it would even be remotely relevant to any of us would be a possible delay in AJ Lee’s WWE return. If she is indeed pregnant, it could be quite some time before she works for WWE again.
How would it work if Brock Lesnar won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam? Would it even be possible for him to hold the title until Wrestlemania 31?
Our top story on Sunday was that WWE was looking to have Brock Lesnar challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam. We later followed up by explaining how a possible Lesnar title reign would be handled. You can read our article at this link.
In short, it would be possible but would also be done in a tactful way that worked around his part-time contract.
What are your thoughts on Bobby Lashley winning the TNA Championship?
TNA had a golden opportunity to reset with Magnus as champion. His reign was horrible and cut short in favor of Eric Young. Unlike many pundits, I was optimistic about Young’s reign because I think he’s one of the most talented guys in the business. Not only can EY work but he’s got a great look and the ability to get over on the mic. TNA wanted to tie his reign in with his new Animal Planet series. Now, it’s been reset again with Lashley. No disrespect to Bobby but this just shows me that TNA never learns. They had two guys they could have branded as “their guys” but have instead found another WWE retread to push as champion.
Who are the members of Adam Rose’s entourage? Do they cast in every city they visit?
Adam Rose’s entourage is a mixture of people. Local call-ins have been used as have staff members and NXT trainers. It all depends on where they are as to who gets used as a Rosebud.
From the Ask WNW vault…
March 2013: Who has a better chance of going over at Wrestlemania 29 – Brock Lesnar or CM Punk? – Pretty much everyone I speak with feels Undertaker is going 21-0 while Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar is more up in the air. I personally feel that both Lesnar and Punk go under and that Triple H avenges his loss from SummerSlam while Undertaker upholds the streak. My preference is for Punk to end the streak although I can see valid arguments from both sides on Hunter vs. Lesnar. Many readers are interpreting my personal preference of Punk “ending the streak” to think I’m saying it’s likely to happen or even being talked about. This is unfounded as I feel Undertaker goes over and that he’s returning to do just that. However, I do think WWE has a unique opportunity and if there is ever going to be a payoff to the streak, this is the year.
Questions that are legible stand the best chance of getting answered. The next installment of Ask WNW is scheduled to run on Tuesday, June 24, 2014.
