AJ Lee announced she would be returning to the wrestling business earlier this week nearly two months after her husband, CM Punk, made his return by joining AEW.
The former WWE Divas Champion will be an executive producer for the upcoming WOW Superheroes relaunch. She’ll also do color commentary for the show.
Mendez recently spoke to Izzy on the WOW Superheros YouTube channel about the decision.
“WOW is about the women. What’s beautiful about women’s wrestling is that they are such special creatures. We’re a rare breed. My favorite wrestling has always been women’s wrestling. I’ll skip over the guy’s match to watch the girls, my whole life. To see over the years how women have gone from being the most exciting part of the show and then you have WOW, where we are the show. We are the whole show. That is what inspired me. Also, I’ve gotten to be on TV, I’ve gotten to make my dreams come true. I’m in a new phase of my life where I’m creating. I have a production company, I’m a writer and producer. To be able to connect those two worlds; my love of wrestling and my love of film and TV, and work behind the scenes as an executive producer, I could not pass that up.”
