AJ Lee is a self-professed "nerd", as she loves...
Last week, WWE's resident "Geek Goddess" tweeted this photo of herself holding the retired belt (for a WWE.com photo shoot she and other wrestlers took part in). Upon seeing the picture, Madusa called out Lee on Facebook.
She wrote, "Apparently someone has delusions of grandeur........
"AJ Never was, Never will be the WWE womens champion as long as I OFFICIALLY hold the title. B*tch never beat me, B*tch never will. However she does give good mike skill so lets see what she has to say now....
"#WWE #madusa #monstertrucks #divas #champion #teammadusa ##kissmyass."
Madusa is not the only person with a less than favorable opinion of the WWE Divas Champion. Earlier this month, Lee tweeted this photo of a tattoo she got on the back of her neck to commemorate the date she won the belt (June 16, 2013). According to this week's issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Lee's tribute drew a negative reaction from some of her co-workers as they consider it an "eye roller"—wrestlers displaying fan-like behavior is generally frowned upon by those affiliated within the industry. Plus, WWE commentators Jerry "The King" Lawler and John "Bradshaw" Layfield poked fun at her ink during last Monday's live Raw broadcast by saying if she lost the belt, she would get a tattoo commemorating the date.
During a recent interview with WWE.com, the New Jersey native explained the meaning behind her unique mark.
"When I was really young, my entire family was covered in tattoos, so it was okay to get one. But I knew, when I did get one, that I wanted it to be something important and special. So, at a very young age, I decided that I would get it when I won the title," said Lee.
"I’m not a girly girl. And I didn't want fancy script or a butterfly or anything like that on me. I wanted something surreal; something that showed time served. That’s why it’s in the style that it’s in. [The Divas Championship is] something that I worked for and spent a great deal of my time trying to get. It's 14 years in the making. So, it’s supposed to be really cold. Just a mark of an accomplishment and now I move on.”
