AJ Lee Says She Could Technically Return To The Ring, But Is Enjoying The Next Generation

AJ Lee (AJ Mendez) is back in wrestling.

On Wednesday it was announced that Lee has signed on with Women of Wrestling as an executive producer and commentator. Lee retired from wrestling in 2015 due to permanent damage to her cervical spine and has since co-written multiple books and comic books.

Of course, with Lee getting back in the wrestling business, fans want to know, will she step back in the wrestling 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," she said in an interview with Izzy on the WOW Superheroes YouTube channel.

Lee's husband CM Punk, who returned to wrestling after a seven-year hiatus in August, said Lee wouldn't return due to her neck injury. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
