The following are highlights of a new Marvel.com interview with WWE Divas
Champion AJ Lee:
Marvel.com: Have you seen “Guardians of the Galaxy”
AJ Lee: I did! It was so funny because I think that people always expect the
big blockbuster to be a household name and something that they’re familiar with
and then you have “Guardians of the Galaxy” come out. It’s the best one so far.
It’s my favorite Marvel movie. I love those stories when it’s something you
wouldn’t expect and it’s these characters who aren’t your ‘drink your milk’
super heroes. They’re little weirdos and I love that.
Marvel.com: The rivalry [with Paige] has been going on for the
better part of six months now. Besides obviously retaining the title, what would
the dream scenario be for how this ends?
AJ Lee: I don’t know. I think the fact that there’s two women who aren’t
necessarily your standard of diva beauty, that aren’t your standard diva… to
have these two women who are very different in myself and Paige in something for
so long and people are invested for the entire time and want to see it keep
going says a lot about how Divas have evolved and how fans have evolved and what
they hold important and what they want to see. They just want to see good
matches and good wrestling and interesting characters and I think that’s
revolutionary and that’s really cool to be a part of. My dream scenario was for
this to go as long as it possibly could and I think it’s been like four of five
months now. I kind of want to see it keep going in some way and I want the story
to continue to get creepy and weird. I just enjoy having those matches with
Marvel.com: You use “The Black Widow” as a finishing move. What
other Marvel characters would you want to borrow moves from?
AJ Lee: Gosh. I don’t know. The perfect thing about the Black Widow is
definitely kind of a little joke; a shout out to Marvel. I think I said it one
time on commentary to pop my buddies over there and then it got such a good
reaction with the fans that I was like “Okay we gotta keep this going. Keep it
part of the repertoire.” We had the spider webs… it just all worked out really
well. But I don’t know. I do have a very special love right now for Kate Bishop
and my Pizza Dog. If I could somehow get a Pizza Dog with me on the way to the
ring, I would be pretty psyched.
