AJ Lee Pregnant Rumors: WWE Plans For Diva's Return Up In The Air Following Marriage To CM Punk
In the midst of rumors that A.J. Lee is pregnant after taking time off from the WWE to move in with and marry CM Punk, her status for a return to the squared circle remains up in the air.
According to Wrestlingheadlines.com, the former WWE Divas Champion was expected to return to the company sometime this summer, but there have been no talks of her at all backstage in the WWE as of late. Lee was expected back a few weeks ago and reports indicated that the WWE was surprised at how long she's been out, but there have been no talks of a return since then.
Lee married Punk on Friday, June 13 in what was said to be a small and private event in which the couple was happy to be getting married on Friday the 13th. Following their wedding, pregnancy rumors started to spill out and a reliable WWE source intimated that he believed that Lee was pregnant on Reddit.com.
Lee took time off from the WWE on the night after WrestleMania XXX, losing the Divas Championship to current champion Paige on the April 7 edition of Monday Night RAW and she hasn't been seen since. It was reported at the time that the WWE told her to take as long as she needed as she moved in with Punk and planned for their wedding.
Now, nearly three months later, there have been no updates on a return to the ring while Punk hasn't appeared in the WWE since January's Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Punk walked out on the company prior to the following night's edition of RAW for various reported reasons that include being burned out, being upset about his character's use and also because the WWE's policy on pay-per-view bonuses upon the launch of the WWE Network was unclear.
Punk is still technically under contract until next month, but he's shown no signs of returning and has enjoyed his free time appearing on other television shows and at Chicago sporting events. The WWE initially tried to get Punk back but after he skipped the March 3 Chicago RAW and WrestleMania XXX -- where he was rumored to face Triple H -- the WWE gave up on getting him back.
It's unknown whether or not Lee is pregnant, but it is feared that she could follow in Punk's footsteps and be off of WWE television for a long time.
