On “WWE Monday Night Raw” this week, AJ Lee came out after a match involving the cast of “Total Divas” and cut a brilliant promo against the cast of the show. According to CM Punk on Twitter on Aug. 27, CM Punk praised the promo and called it a “#pipebombshell.”
What made her promo so great was that it was similar to CM Punk’s pipe bomb before he started his long WWE title reign. In Punk’s promo, he came out and lashed into Vince McMahon about pushing the wrong people, ignoring those who are actual wrestlers, and burying the best talent.
AJ Lee basically called out the Funkadactyls and Bella Twins for lacking wrestling talent and appearing on “Total Divas” because they aren’t good enough actresses to appear in anything but reality TV. She then passed off a comment about the Bella Twins “sucking” up to the right people to make it to the top.
The Bella Twins are dating John Cena and Daniel Bryan.
AJ Lee also said the only reason Natalya is there is because her dad used to be a WWE star and then dismissed both of the new WWE Divas.
What made the promo so great was that AJ Lee spoke the truth almost the entire time. The best bad guys, such as men like Chris Jericho and CM Punk, are wrestlers who speak what they believe to be the truth, even if it isn’t the popular choice. In this case though, the fans were chanting for AJ Lee even while the Bella Twins were trash talking at ringside.
