There was an incident backstage at last Wednesday's WWE Tribute to the Troops taping involving WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee. Apparently Lee became enraged over an interaction between NBC's Michelle Beadle and her boyfriend CM Punk. Details on what exactly caused the outburst are unknown as of press time but it was a topic making rounds headed into Sunday's WWE TLC pay-per-view.
Beadle Tweeted the following on Thursday:
Punk apparently made reference to it, seemingly placing blame on WWE Thursday evening on Twitter. Punk Tweeted:
I spoke with a source with knowledge of the incident and was told AJ Lee was kayfabing Beadle, however, WWE officials didn't take well to it. I'm told AJ was pulled to the side and screamed at in front of others. CM Punk is upset and doesn't feel AJ should get heat for remaining in character.
