– The major story making rounds prior to WWE TLC is an incident between WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee and Michelle Beadle backstage at Wednesday’s Tribute to the Troops taping. The entire thing was due to misinformation and miscommunication and exacerbating it is careless reporting. I posted the full details at this link but I’ll give you the cliff notes if you aren’t a WNW Premium Member. AJ Lee was told by a WWE producer they were filming a backstage segment for the WWE App (or on dot com) with her and Beadle. When AJ Lee went to rehearse the segment, Beadle acted like she didn’t know what AJ was talking about. WWE officials were also surprised and Lee was pulled aside and berated. AJ tried to explain and was under the impression the segment had been cleared with Beadle and by production. CM Punk, who is AJ’s real-life boyfriend, stepped in and was enraged, believing AJ Lee was setup. You can get all the exclusive notes at this link.
