WWE Rejected AJ Lee’s Pitch To Work With Former Star

AJ Lee

Despite multiple requests by AJ Lee to work with a specific former WWE superstar, she was always turned down.

AJ Lee made it right to the top of the tree in WWE, becoming Divas Champion whilst also being voted Diva Of The Year on two occasions. Lee retired from in-ring competition in April 2015, shortly after she had teamed with Saraya (known as Paige at the time) to defeat The Bella Twins at WrestleMania 31.

However, it would now appear that AJ Lee had one person in the women’s division she wanted more of an opportunity to work with, but it only happened on one occasion despite the idea being pushed on plenty of occasions.

In a discussion during a Golden Ring Collectibles virtual signing, former WWE superstar Summer Rae revealed that AJ Lee went so far as to ask Vince McMahon if the pair would work together, but the idea was constantly rejected.

AJ did ask to work me multiple times and they didn’t give it to her. AJ was kind of working the same people over and over, and we had one match on “Superstars” or something. Because I was so tall, I could base her for a lot of her lucha and high flying stuff. She just really liked working with me, and she didn’t think I had a shot, like I wasn’t given a shot. She asked Vince and she asked a lot of people, and they just said ‘No.’

January was a busy month for Summer Rae, as she was backstage at both WWE and AEW events.
