Even More On AJ Lee/Michelle Beadle Incident At WWE Tribute To The Troops

Here’s the latest on the AJ Lee/Michelle Beadle incident backstage at WWE Tribute to the Troops last Wednesday. Prior to the incident, CM Punk and Beadle were friends as one source described it as a former “close” relationship. When Beadle saw Punk backstage there was an interaction in which the WWE Divas Champion was not involved in.

Shortly after that interaction, there was a incident between AJ Lee and Michelle Beadle. While I heard (and reported) Sunday that AJ approached Beadle in-character to rehearse a planned kayfabe segment, other sources were not aware of plans to film such a segment. While this does line up with what I was told that only a few people knew of intentions to do an AJ/Beadle segment, multiple sources are unaware of it’s planning.

AJ confronted Beadle in front of WWE officials and got an earful. We’re told AJ has been having a problem with separating her fictional character from what is real-life (something not uncommon). The WWE officials that berated AJ, while not named, were reportedly very hard on her. We’re being told this is what set CM Punk off and he felt the handling was very unprofessional.

WWE is trying to sweep the entire incident under the rug and move on from it. There is no heat on CM Punk and based on the booking at WWE TLC, one can assume AJ Lee is fine going forward.

    Ya know, I find it funny that WWE wants to BeAStat, but still practices archaic discipline approaches. Kudos to Punk for doing the right thing in sticking up for his girlfriend. I hope the official that publicaly reprinted AJ, has heat now.

    Michael Hayes is a WWE Official, that shows you the sort of caliber of person they trust with responsibility. Is he even out of rehab yet? When he gets back to work I wonder if he’ll still be a WWE official.

    Reading all of this it does look like WWE officials are to blame here & not AJ from doing her job. If AJ got heat for that it was not her fault. Plus if this was 70′s 0r 80′s AJ would be commended for doing this.

    It’s BS that people like Punk & AJ are allowed too act however they want backstage without receiving any type punishment. Pubk’s crybaby attitude has trickled onto AJ now and now she thinks she’s untouchable as well. In sick of Vince protecting Punk every time he throws a fit backstage.

      Because Cena doesn’t bitch backstage? Or get pushes stopped? Orton doesn’t get people fired. Cena helped with that, by the way. Your squeaky clean idols are just as bad as you make out the rest of the roster is. Or Orton crapping in a bag. Or Orton sexually harassing divas? Or Orton smoking marijuana? Or Orton trashing a hotel room? Seeing a pattern here?

        When’s the last time Cena told a fan to drink poison or called a fan a gay slur or hit a fan or held the company hostage until he got a new contract?
