WWE recently announced their first-ever all women’s PPV Evolution, which will be taking place in October from the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, NY.
As you would expect WWE is planning to pull out all the stops for this event, as we have already started to see with the announcement of WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus’ return to singles action for the first time in seven years, as she takes on former RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss on the show.
Following the announcement of the Evolution PPV, WWE released a poll where they asked fans which former WWE Female Superstars they would like to return at Evolution. Interestingly enough, one of the names included in the poll was AJ Lee.
One would expect that the chances of AJ Lee making a return to wrestling, even for one night seem pretty slim especially considering the long drawn out and expensive legal battle her husband CM Punk just went through with WWE. However, AJ Lee’s possible appearance at Evolution might actually be a lot closer to a reality than you’d think.
Recently on Barn Burner‘s No Holds Barred podcast the host Joseph Peisich revealed that WWE has in fact reached out to AJ Lee about a return at Evolution, and his sources told him that they are closing in on a deal.
Regarding AJ Lee’s potential WWE return at Evolution, Peisich said:
“Vince McMahon picked up the phone and he reached out to AJ Lee about returning at the Evolution pay-per-view. AJ has not confirmed or denied that. Sources tell me they’re closing in on a deal with AJ Lee.”
