— While AJ Lee recently made an appearance at a Comic Con event, those close to her claim she is not interested in taking any bookings right now. Others looking to book the former WWE Diva are claiming that they were told that her daily fee is $15,000, plus business class travel and hotels. One source notes that the reason her booking fee is so high is simply because she doesn’t want to be bothered with them. She was also very good at saving the money she earned while working in WWE and is financially set for years to come.
