A story has come out today that there is significant backstage heat on AJ Lee after she allegedly ‘lost it’ after seeing NBC personality Michelle Beadle talking to CM Punk backstage at the Tribute to the Troops show in Washington. Beadle, who was hosting, was subject to a verbal tirade from Lee which contained a number of obscenities.
According to some embarrassed people in WWE, Lee acted like her on screen character and “not in a good way,” and she is likely to face disciplinary action. Punk is said to be upset with WWE officials over the incident and vented on Twitter:
It's difficult to always try to do business the proper way with a company that refuses to practice the same standards.

Michelle Beadle also responded to a fan question on Twitter about the incident:
@Derpina_007 hon…it was done in front of company people. I didn't say a word. I thought it was a joke.
