Stephanie McMahon wants CM Punk and AJ Lee back in WWE

As reported some time ago, WWE television in the UK and Ireland will be moving from Sky Sports to BT Sport in January 2020, and of course the promotion for it has begun.

This week has seen Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon talking to talkSPORT radio station, amongst other outlets. Below are the various highlights:

Another Women’s Evolution PPV via talkSPORT:

“It is certainly something that we are pushing for. There’s no official announcement just yet and yes, there was a lot of balls in the air and wheels in motion in terms of this year and, of course, one of the big focuses was on our event in Saudi Arabia and having our women being allowed to perform. I’m hopeful to have an announcement on an Evolution 2, but there is nothing official to announce just yet.”

Potential CM Punk/AJ Lee returns via Metro UK:

“I personally enjoy watching both of them perform. I think Punk’s been pretty vocal that he’s not interested in an in-ring return right now, but for sure, that would be interesting. And I would love to see AJ Lee back in the women’s division.

I think AJ Lee was an incredibly compelling character. Some of our most interesting and intriguing storylines were with AJ, and I think she deserves as much credit as every other woman on our roster.”

A Ronda Rousey return via GiveMesport:

“Ronda will definitely be back, that is the plan – but, as of now, I’m not sure where and when.”

    You need to stop taking the funny pills mate, because you seem to hate all the best angles.

    The crazy chick that openly flirted with the top of the roster got over huge.

    I’ve said repeatedly, the women have to interact with the men. It’s unrealistic otherwise.

    “Some of our most interesting and intriguing storylines were with AJ”.

    Yeah. Like the ones where she was crazy, manipulative, whiny, cutting cringe-worthy promos, throwing temper tantrums, Sleeping with dudes.

    Lee was a great in ring performer. But get real, the way WWE “wrote” her character, was non-stop god awful.

    Well, she’d love to see AJ Lee back, but didn’t directly say she “wanted” Punk…
