A post shared by AJ Mendez (@theajmendez)

While she is now known as an author and a screenwriter, we prominently know Mendez for her time at WWE under the ring name AJ Lee. In 2014, she became the longest-running WWE Divas Champion. During her time at WWE, she became synonymous with other names, such as Trish Stratus and Lita.

However, she decided to leave the company in 2015, a year after CM Punk left. While CM Punk has returned to WWE, rumors of her possible entry at the 2024 Royal Rumble are going rampant.

The rumors began popping up similar to that of CM Punk’s return to WWE. While Punk did drop some cryptic messages, Lee has been dropping hints openly.

Since his return, CM Punk has mentioned AJ Lee’s name on live television a number of times. While it is rather unusual for a star to mention their personal life in the ring, fans believe that the name-dropping might be a potential hint. Apart from that, Punk was seen at the WWE NXT following his return. While he was talking with Cora Jade backstage, Lee dropped by to meet the two. While she might not be planning to enter the ring, do you think she is planning to be a part of the NXT? Or do you think that will happen after her 2024 Royal Rumble return?
