Michelle Beadle wrote the following in regards to the AJ Lee backstage incident at the WWE Tribute to the Troops taping incident last Wednesday:
@Derpina_007 hon…it was done in front of company people. I didn't say a word. I thought it was a joke.

I know there are multiple versions of what exactly went down but the way it was described to me, AJ Lee was working but no one knew she was working. When Beadle acted like she had no idea it was planned for a segment and company officials saw it happened, they pulled AJ Lee aside and berated her. From what I was told, AJ tried to explain herself when CM Punk stepped in and was upset at the way it was handled. I have more at this link.
