CM Punk is set to compete in the Royal Rumble on January 27th and fans are obviously pulling for him to win the Rumble match and finally get to the main event of WrestleMania 40. Interestingly enough, Punk seems to have dropped a tease concerning AJ Lee ahead of tonight’s Royal Rumble.

In case you are not aware, AJ Lee’s success story in WWE is truly remarkable, credited for playing a pivotal role in kickstarting WWE’s Women’s Revolution. She left pro wrestling back in 2015, immediately after WrestleMania 31.

That didn’t stop Lee from sparking in-ring return rumors after she posted recent photo with her old ring gear. However, AJ Lee then made it clear that she is still retired and this saddened fans.

Prior to the Royal Rumble Premium Live Event, CM Punk took to his Instagram story and uploaded a photo of himself alongside someone who appeared to be AJ Lee, at an airport’s conveyor belt.


Bayley also previously made it clear she would gladly let AJ Lee eliminate her from the Royal Rumble, should Lee return. It remains to be seen whether AJ Lee does return to the Rumble tonight, as fans would more than love to see that happen.

WWE Royal Rumble 2024 Lineup:

  • WWE Undisputed Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Randy Orton vs. AJ Styles vs. LA Knight
  • Men’s Royal Rumble match
