It’s been years since fans have seen AJ Lee in the ring. The former WWE Divas Champion hasn’t laced up the boots since she parted ways with WWE shortly after WrestleMania 31, but she’s been busy focusing on other projects.
Ariane Andrew, formerly known as Cameron in WWE, is another former Superstar who hasn’t been seen on WWE programming in years, as she was released in 2016.
She recently talked to Ring The Belle about her run with WWE, and her championship match with AJ Lee.
During the interview she noted that the match was nerve wracking because originally Naomi was supposed to face AJ. She then went on to say that she respects, AJ Lee, but she was a little difficult to work with sometimes.
“I plead the fifth, just gonna leave it at that. We’re just gonna have a moment of silence because wrestling fans are gonna hate me out there. You know she did make a huge impact in the division, but what I will say I respect her and her work ethic and what she’s doing now with her books and stuff. For someone who was new, I wish I could have had someone who was a little bit more guiding and not just kind of like leave me out with the wolves. That was what it was kind of like with dealing with her, major tough love. I don’t want to throw her under the bus or anything, it’s just was me being so new I would have expected someone to not show up at the ring five minutes before doors are about to open.
“You know what I mean, especially when there’s a match this big, they didn’t even know if the match was gonna even happen. I must spill some tea here because she said she was sick. Her stomach was hurting, but then she told me to do my move where I dropped the leg on her stomach. So I was like, ‘Girl, I’m [confused]?’ I have to do my signature move, but if your stomach is messed up and your ovaries, why would you want me to drop my leg on yours? I spilled a little tea there, but again wrestling community, IWC, I have love for the girl! I respected how far and the impact she did make on the division. It’s just you know some people just can be a little difficult to work with sometimes.”
