CM Punk has spoken about his wife April Mendez (AJ Lee) making her return to wrestling with WOW, which was announced last week.
Mendez will be the executive producer and color commentator for WOW (Women of Wrestling) for its relaunch, and her being involved was a huge surprise.
Speaking with Sports Illustrated, CM Punk said:
“I’m very excited for her. She’s doing what she wants to do. She’s going to get to write and use her voice to do something that she maybe thought she wouldn’t get the chance to do again. It’s no bumps, and it’s a chance to help foster and grow the next generation of females in wrestling. That’s a perfect, perfect spot for her.”
You could say Punk knows a thing or two about surprise returns.
Recently commenting on the possibility of getting back in the ring, Mendez said: “Never say never, but don’t hold your breath”.
