NorthJersey.Com conducted a great interview with AJ in preparation for the No Way Out PPV. Here are some of the highlights from the interview:
When AJ fell in love with wrestling: “I was best friends with my brother. I did anything he did. I was a little copycat and … I just sat down and kind of just fell in love with it,” said Lee, who occasionally wears camouflage ring gear in matches as a nod to her brother, who served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Being embraced by the WWE Universe: “When I first got on ‘Smackdown’ there were a couple of matches where there were AJ chants in the crowd, and I was [unknown],” said Lee. “For them to kind of embrace me and come after it with little AJ chants – that was so moving.”
Her full circle moment at Wrestlemania 28: “I had no idea that essentially [Bryan and myself] would be at WrestleMania,” said Lee. “It wasn’t the happiest day for Daniel Bryan, but we came back through the curtain and I just cried like a baby and was just so happy my dream was realized.”
AJ’s ultimate goals in WWE: “The basic kid in you wants to be in a video game and wants to have an action figure and so those are two things [that] I’m really looking forward to one day,” said Lee of her career goals in wrestling. “But the ultimate goal, as a woman in this industry, is to be the Champion.”
