On April 3rd the news broke that one of WWE’s biggest names announced retirement. That name was none other then 3 time divas champion AJ Lee. This left many fans confused. Why would someone who loves professional wrestling retire just 5 years after being in WWE?
Now with more light being shed on the situation we may have those answers. According to Wrestling obsbver newsletter the word going around backstage is her retirement is the result of a lawsuit that WWE physician Chris Anmann has against AJ’s husband Phil “CM Punk” Brooks
By retiring AJ was able to get out of her contract with WWE but she also gives up the opportunity to compete in any other pro wrestling organization.
