Cm punk dating lita again 2016
It has remained unclear whether Lethal simply made the comment to generate heat or if there was genuine animosity between the him and Punk or Lee, and neither AJ nor Punk have offered any response.
WWE has an unfortunate reputation for treating celebrity guests better than their own talent, although the infamous story involving AJ Lee and ESPN broadcaster Michelle Beadle is one where Beadle might actually deserve the benefit of the doubt.
Punk and AJ’s 12-year age gap isn’t exactly indicative of a May-December romance, but nonetheless it created a bizarre circumstance in that AJ Lee has been very open about the fact she absolutely idolized one of her future husband’s ex-girlfriends.
Punk engaged in an on-again-off-again relationship with Lita lasting until as little as a few months prior to beginning his courtship with AJ.
Two years later, Lethal was singing a different tune prior to a Ring of Honor match against Alberto Del Rio, claiming he wasn’t going to “take CM Punk’s hand-me-downs,” but Punk that would obviously take his.
Lethal made the comment on March 1, 2015, and Punk and AJ were married only four months later.
Once AJ Lee became famous in her own right, WWE discovered video footage from an autograph session in 2001 that saw AJ break down in tears upon the excitement of meeting Lita.
More than a couple fans have noticed the connection and found it a bit weird, to say the least, wondering just how far AJ’s idolization went that she saw fit to basically steal Lita’s boyfriend exactly 12 years later.
He appeared in a TV movie WWE Hall of Fame 2006 in 2006 as himself.A year later, Lita was herself inducted into WWE's Hall of Fame. Punk had left the company months earlier, his girlfriend (and now wife) AJ Lee probably wasn't there, either, even though she had talked about how Lita was her idol growing up. Despite their dual status as two top members of the WWE roster, or perhaps because of that status, Punk and AJ were relatively quiet about starting a relationship during the early days of their courtship.Nonetheless, context clues can tell us they started getting together sometime in late 2013, only shortly after Punk had ceased his second shot at a romance with WWE Hall of Famer Lita.
One of AJ’s highest profile relationships prior to Punk was with future ROH World Champion Jay Lethal, who incidentally was also her first trainer in the wrestling industry.
