AJ Lee’s acceptance speech for winning the “Diva of the Year” Slammy award on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw has once again fueled rumors that she could be on her way out of WWE.
While there was some talk that she could be finishing up with WWE at Survivor Series, we debunked it. However, questions regarding her booking at the pay-per-view caused a “pause” before we confirmed she was on booking sheets well into December.
Now, the rumors are back. At this point we’re unable to confirm anything but have included a transcription of her acceptance speech given on Raw below:
“Ok so, three years ago I promised all of you I would redefine the term Diva and I am very proud to say I have done that. You can be a nerd, you can be a tomboy and you can still be the longest reigning Divas Champion of all-time. So I hope that means that next year this award is won by Bayley or Sasha or Charlotte or Emma or Paige. Any of those girls can be next in line for the throne but I’m not done being queen and Sunday, I will take back what is mine and I will become the four-time Divas Champion.”

AJ is the real-life wife of CM Punk and was with him at UFC 181 in Las Vegas. We embedded photos at this link.
Below are her latest Tweets as she’s literally part of both WWE and UFC (in support of her husband) at the moment:
Richard Reacts: I'm sorry but I have to mention the similarities to Brock Lesnar. Lesnar left WWE because he was burnt out and looking for another avenue to utilize his athletic abilities. He too is married to now former WWE Diva in Rena "Sable" Lesnar. It's funny how similar the two stories are.
