It appears that AJ Mendez (AJ Lee in WWE) and WOW – Women of Wrestling will be parting ways in the near future.
Over the weekend, Mendez took to her Instagram Stories to announce that her contract as an Executive Producer and commentator for the company is coming to an end. She wrote,
“As my contract with @wowsuperheroes winds down, I wanna thank the ladies for welcoming me into their locker room, our hair and makeup talk sessions, and constantly inspiring me with their hard work, talent, and genuine camaraderie. I’ll try to come back and play in the future! I hope all you fans keep watching next season to support these incredible athletes and stars of tomorrow.
(this project is non-union, but while we’re here #wgastrong #sagaftrastrong”
Lee has been a huge proponent of the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes involving the two unions. She has also written several projects herself.
Mendez joined WOW – Women Of Wrestling back in 2021.
