Things You Didn’t Know About CM Punk And AJ Lee
8. SHE TOOK HIS LAST NAME
This may not seem like that big of a deal, but AJ Lee’s full name is April Jeanette Mendez Brooks. What that means is that she took the last name of her husband Phil “CM Punk” Brooks. The irony behind her taking Punk’s last name is that Lee is a role model for girls to be independent women.
Lee’s own words tell girls to “Break the rules. Be A fighter. Any dream is possible if you are brave enough to do it your way” which sounds like a feminist call to action, yet she took her husband’s last name. Maybe I am reading into this too much and she just wanted to be traditional in holy matrimony, but nothing about these two is exactly traditional.
