K-Doubles Take: My take on the retirement of AJ Lee from the WWE…


                                                                                    During this time in the sports world in which we are seeing athletes retiring at young ages to save their bodies. We watch as wrestlers from my childhood are still getting in the ring and going at it (Ric Flair is a prime example of this). This seems to be something that is occurring in professional wrestling as well. 1st we had Phil Brooks (better known as CM Punk ) retire out of nowhere and decide he wants to take his shot at the MMA world. Now we have one of the WWE’s top Diva’s and one of their most beloved on screen characters AJ Lee (April Mendez) has retired from in ring competition.


                                                                                       This is a huge impact to the WWE as much as they think that they can just go on (which they will). They need female wrestlers who can go like AJ could in order to sell the product. Now don’t get me wrong Nikki Bella and Brie Bella can go in the ring and so can Paige. But not the way that they all could go with AJ, she was a tremendous talent in the ring and as far as her personality. I think most of the WWE universe loved her deeply. She connected with the girls who didn’t look like the Bella’s. The average looking girl (even though she herself was not average looking at all). The woman’s division in the WWE is sorely lacking and I’m not saying that the woman currently on the roster aren’t deserving of their roster spot. I’m just saying with the talent that I see down in NXT the girls on the main roster need to step up their game because the competition is getting hot. Only down side is that AJ is young enough to have been a leader in that locker room and still given us some quality matches with the young wrestlers. Instead she has chosen to leave the game at the pinnacle of her career maybe to return?? Most likely not and she needs to know that she will be sorely missed…
