AJ Mendez, formerly known as AJ Lee, hasn’t wrestled since 2015. She won’t be wrestling for WOW Women of Wrestling, but that won’t keep fans from wishing she would change her mind. AJ has projects going outside of the pro wrestling world, but she is returning to sports entertainment for an executive producer role on the rebooted series.
While speaking to the WOW Superheroes YouTube channel, AJ Lee told Izzy that she could make a return to pro wrestling, but right now she is really enjoying the current generation of performers in the ring.
“I will say, I say the same thing in every interview, and it’s always ‘never say never, but don’t hold your breath.’ What I mean by that is, I never say never to anything; physically, mentally, emotionally, I’m healed from everything I’ve gone through in wrestling. I could technically do it, but I’m so enjoying letting the next generation have their spotlight. I got to do everything I wanted to do. So, it really would have to be, is that challenge there? I don’t think the girls need me there. I think that they are going to take over the world all by themselves.”
We’ll have to see what’s next for AJ Lee, because she hasn’t retired for any medical reason. She simply decided to pursue other interests, ones that are still keeping her very busy. Her husband, CM Punk, did return to the ring, so you can never say never especially in professional wrestling.
