Things You Didn’t Know About CM Punk And AJ Lee
2. WWE HAS TAKEN SHOTS AT BOTH
The WWE writing team isn’t exactly…mature. Whenever someone leaves the company on bad terms, the WWE can and will take shots on the air at the former employees. Both AJ Lee and CM Punk are no exception to the WWE’s on-air insults. AJ Lee was openly mocked by Alex Riley on Twitter when he posted “I just got 4-3-15 tattooed on my neck”.
The date mentioned by Riley is the day of Lee’s retirement, and the tattoo remark is referring to the ink on her neck that features the date of her first Diva’s Title reign. Fans bombarded Riley’s social media accounts demanding an apology on behalf of Lee.
Punk on the other hand, had his UFC 203 loss mocked by the WWE during the Backlash pay per view. During a match between The Miz and Dolph Ziggler, Miz ran at Ziggler only to be taken down immediately and put into a rear naked choke. If that series of events sounds familiar, it’s because that is exactly what happened to Punk when he took on Mickey Gall just a week prior.
