AJ Lee Interview: Getting Into Wrestling, WrestleMania 29, Her Inspirations and More

– WWE Diva AJ Lee recently spoke with to promote Sunday’s No Way Out pay-per-view. Here are some highlights:

Working No Way Out with Kane, Daniel Bryan and CM Punk:
“It is the most mind-blowing thing to me. I feel like everything happens for a reason and everything comes around full circle”

Hoping to leave her mark at WrestleMania 29:
“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. But the ultimate goal, as a woman in this industry, is to be the Champion.”

AJ revealed that her family came up through rough times and she decided at age 12 she wanted to be a wrestler:
“I had a bunch of part time jobs. I was a janitor at day care. I was a cashier. And I just did that to support my family, but I wanted a little bit more money because I had to support wrestling school.”

“I knew that I didn’t look like everybody else so I wasn’t going to take the traditional route of everybody so I kind of needed to learn my craft and just get myself there no matter what.”

AJ said her inspirations while watching WWE were Trish Stratus, Lita, Molly Holly and Stephanie McMahon.

  • Seth

    Stepanie McMahon took more bumps than Kelly Kelly and the Bellas combined.

  • Dave

    For all her lack of wrestling ability. She was a week in, week out character on WWE. So I can see her being an inspiration to young female wrestlers at that time.

  • Whooper

    What has Stephanie McMahon ever done?
