Even though the Divas division is basically dead, AJ has somehow managed to make herself matter more than most guys on the roster.
She has been one of the biggest breakout stars of 2012, going from a relative afterthought to the girlfriend of Daniel Bryan to the general manager of Monday Night Raw and playing a huge part in storylines along the way.
AJ's involvement with CM Punk, Kane and, most importantly, Daniel Bryan gave AJ her first real opportunity to get over, and she did that. Big time.
Her "crazy chick" character got ridiculously over this summer, so much so, in fact, that she often found herself involved in main-event segments on Raw. What's odd, though, is that this character got so over without AJ having to be too babyface-like.
She did insane things like push Punk and Bryan through a table and make out with both of them in one night, and it worked, definitely portraying her as crazy but doing so in a way that made her become very popular with the WWE fans, especially guys who like "crazy chicks."
Now, she continues to be, by far, the most popular Diva on the roster, its most-developed character and probably the most talented one, too.
Things are definitely looking up for AJ.
