CM Punk Addresses Potential AJ Lee WWE Return WWE

After fan speculation about a possible appearance at tonight’s WWE Money in the Bank, now CM Punk has reacted to rumors of AJ Lee returning.

In the WWE Money in the Bank post-show press conference, CM Punk was asked about the possibility of him ever sharing the ring in WWE with real life wife and former Divas Champion AJ Lee (real name AJ Mendez).

CM Punk said:

“I don’t want to fall in the trap of saying ‘never say never’. I don’t wanna give people false hope. I also will not put words in her mouth and say, ‘I think this could happen’.

“I think this is a brave new world and I don’t think a lot of people thought I was gonna show up. It’s really all on her.

“She’s busy, I’m super proud of her, she’s doing her own thing, she’s got a – I don’t even know if I’m allowed to talk about this stuff – she’s got a production company started up, she’s writing TV, movies, all kinds of stuff.

“And laughably I always say I’m a bad husband because I never know what project she’s talking about. ‘Oh I have a meeting’, and I’m like, ‘With who? Is it Netflix? Is it Hulu? Is it CBS?’ I don’t know. She’s got so many irons in so many different fires.

“I will say as a fan of hers, would love to see it.”
