AJ Lee Avoids Question About WWE Firing CM Punk

While speaking to USA Today, former WWE Superstar AJ Lee was asked about WWE firing her husband CM Punk on her wedding day. They also pointed out that WWE has apologized for the timing and pointed out that it was her wedding day too. She responded with the following remarks:

“Right now there is ongoing litigation so I actually can’t talk about that. I’m sorry.”

AJ also talked about not liking the term “diva” and commented on the company changing the name to “Superstars” instead:

“It was sort of the opposite with the word ‘diva.’ There was an embracing of something that was not, I think, truthful to everyone that was on the roster. There weren’t divas. I think the connotations for that just weren’t true to who our girls were. When you enter that world and you say, ‘This is just how the business is now, but we will be different. We will show that we have layers.’ I actually have the quote in one of my speeches that I wanted to redefine the term ‘diva.’ You can call me that, but it’s going to mean something new. I think my generation definitely did that and I’m really proud of that. To know that the girls after me have kind of taken that ball and run with it and are evolving, it warms my heart. There’s nothing else I could have wanted more for the future than for it to be so redefined that the word was abolished.”
