A cameraman then focused on AJ, who was sporting a Lita t-shirt, and had tears of joy on her face. As members of the WWE Universe know by now, AJ married CM Punk in June 2014.
What’s noteworthy about that is that The Straight Edge Superstar had previously dated Lita.
Del Rio was informed of the comment, and confronted him. “There was a reason she wasn’t fired and it had nothing to do with Punk being her boyfriend nor how good a performer she was, although her star power did play into it.” He continued, “The decision was made to fire her but Vince overruled it because he saw the big picture.
The individual did not apologize for his remark and then smiled at him. Meltzer addressed the matter again on the F4message board in response to a user comparing it to Lee’s outburst at Beadle. It’s very complicated, but in that issue, Vince was savvy way beyond those underneath him and saw what would happen long-term and made the big picture smart call.
In the summer of 2001, Lita was riding high in what was then called the World Wrestling Federation while AJ, who was 13-years-old at the time, was in tears as she met her hero in person.
Shortly after the photo hit social media, the former WWE Superstar angrily went on his Twitter account to let fans know that he would block anyone who re-tweeted a certain picture (the tweet was quickly deleted). Rumors of their nuptials originated on social media three days prior when a Twitter user going by the name Courtney Santos said she had processed Punk and Lee’s marriage license.He revealed that WWE officials had decided to terminate her contract over her unprofessional conduct, but were overruled by Vince Mc Mahon. If that happened now, the situation would be the same and she wouldn’t be fired for the same reason.Her being fired for that specific incident would have caused a chain of events to happen next that Vince thought would do the company more harm than good. She had this group of women and they walked past me and she said some disrespectful shit and I was just like ‘whoa’.All three grappling superstars are private people, so none of them have publicly said anything concerning this odd triangle.A former backstage worker for WWE, however, shed some light on it.
