Former Diva’s Champion AJ Lee’s influence in the pro wrestling world cannot be understated. After CM Punk made his debut in AEW, many fans wanted AJ Lee to follow suit and join her husband. Lee also reacted to CM Punks AEW debut, but she has yet to respond to fans clamouring for her in-ring return. It seems even Britt Baker wants her in AEW.

AJ Lee’s success story in WWE is certainly a remarkable one, to say the least as she is given credit for helping to jumpstart the WWE’s Women’s Revolution. She left pro wrestling back in 2015, but fans continue to wonder if she’ll ever come back.

While speaking during a Planet Comicon event, AEW Women’s Champion Britt Baker was asked about the possibility of AJ Lee making her way to AEW eventually. Baker stated that she would love to face off against AJ Lee inside the squared circle.

“I was a big AJ Lee fan.


One of the first moves I asked my trainer to teach me when I was training was her finisher, the Black Widow. So, that would be really cool.

“Again, it’s giving the fans what they want. I think for the fans to see both of them [Punk & Lee] in a wrestling ring again in 2021, which is not in WWE…that alone would be evolutionary.

“So, for that moment alone, I would love to see her in AEW. I would love to see her in the ring with me.”

It is not known whether AJ Lee will decide to WWE or AEW for that matter, as she has been very busy with various projects, which includes writing novels and comic books over the past few years.

However, AJ Lee’s return to the pro wrestling world would definitely be received well, regardless of whether company she goes to. We will have to wait and see what AJ Lee will decide to do in the end.
