Man, AJ Lee would’ve had a ball in this era of women’s wrestling, huh? Lee was an underrated wrestling talent with quickness and lucha elements in her moveset, yet there is an argument that she was big fish in a small pond of meddling Diva’s talent. Lee’s selling and pyschology would translate well in any era of women’s wrestling, it’s spot on. Her skipping, mannerisms, and promo skills is what AJ had over the other women during that time. That’s the crux of AJ’s talent, she’s a great character worker. With concise mic skills and brilliant mannerisms, she was instantly over post Wrestlemania 28, as D-Bry’s punching bag transitioning into mentally unstable queen of the division. While WWE has done all but write her from history, Lee’s arguably one of the most over women that has stepped foot in the company.

Her rise to stardom allowed her to finally make some leeway in the Divas division in 2013, leading to her first championship reign. Over the next two years, she would serve as the unquestionable face of the women’s wrestling in the biggest sports entertainment company on the planet.

Not the prototypical Diva by any stretch of the imagination, she broke barriers and served as the inspiration for young female fans in the audience, not to mention her fellow competitors across the independent scene who may have spent the early portion of their careers believing they would never make it because they did not look a certain way

I felt like AJ’s retirement is even more tragic due to the NXT women being called up after she retired. Imagine: AJ Lee vs Charlotte, AJ vs Sasha, AJ vs Bayley, AJ vs Alexa, AJ vs Mickie James!! I hope one day she comes back.

My favorite matches of hers are:

Queen of FCW title match vs Serena

NXT Season 3 vs Naomi

AJ vs Nikki on Raw 2015

Payback Diva’s title vs Kaitlyn

Natalya as well, TLC ‘13,

AJ vs Natalya - Main Event early 2014

My fave moment: The Total Divas PipeBombshell:

“OMG you guys, I just watched last night’s episode of Total Divas and it was insane, oh my gosh. I mean, the Bellas were dealing with their obvious daddy issues. The Funkadactyls broke up and then got back together again. Natalya’s fiancé isn’t much of a man. And the other two were also there. It was great, it really was, and it was the end of the world and it’s only Sunday nights on the E! network. Do you wanna know what I see when I look in that ring? Honestly? A bunch of cheap, interchangeable, expendable, usuless women. Women who have turned to reality television ‘cause they just weren’t gifted enough to be actresses. And they just weren’t talented enough to be champion. I have done more in one year than all of you have done in your entire collective careers. I have saved your Divas division, I have shattered glass ceilings, I have broken down doors. Why? So, so, a bunch of ungrateful, stiff, plastic manikins can waltz on through without even getting as much of a thank you? You guys can’t even go backstage and shake my hand and look at me in the eyes because you know that I worked my entire life to get here, I gave my life to this and you were just handed fifteen minutes of fame. I didn’t get here because I was cute, or because I came from a famous wrestling family, or because I sucked up to the right people. I got here because I am good. I earned this Championship and no matter how many red carpets you guys wanna walk in your four thousand dollars ridicolous heels, you will never be able to lace up my Chuck Taylors. You’re all worthless excuses for women and you will never be able to touch me. And that is reality.” – And even till this day, none of them ever did!
