CM Punk is putting an end to the idea of AJ Lee returning to the ring.
With Punk back in wrestling, many have wondered if his wife AJ Lee would follow suit. Punk gave Lee a shoutout during his promo on last Wednesday's Dynamite and Britt Baker mentioned the possibility of a mixed tag team match involving Punk and Lee.
Speaking to Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post, Punk commented on the possibility of AJ returning to the ring.
“I just want to say, no,” Punk said. “Just because [of] her neck. The reason she stopped wrestling is because of her neck. She’s got a bad neck, you know. I wouldn’t want her to jeopardize [her] health and neither would she, so we’ll put an end to that rumor right now.”
Lee hasn't wrestled since 2015 when she left WWE due to permanent damage to her cervical spine. Since leaving wrestling, she has written or co-written multiple books and comic books and is an advocate for mental health awareness and animal welfare.
Punk is set to make his in-ring return this Sunday at AEW All Out when he faces Darby Allin.
