AJ Lee Injury: Updates on WWE Star's Possible Concussion, Potential Return Date
AJ Lee, fresh off yet another Divas title defense at Sunday night's Battleground pay-per-view, reportedly suffered a concussion during her win over Brie Bella and will be forced to miss some time.
According to WWE.com, AJ won't be at Raw on Monday night and her potential return won't come until she is symptom free and passes all follow-up tests.
UPDATE: Monday, Oct. 14
WWE.com can confirm that AJ has been medically cleared to compete and will be present at tonight's Raw at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo.
WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann added these details about her injury, via the WWE.com report:
We spoke with AJ and she informed us that … she struck her head against the turnbuckle and was having headaches and some difficulty remembering her match. We examined her and noted that she had some problems with balance and memory recall. She was, therefore, diagnosed with a concussion, instructed to rest and not do anything either physically or psychologically strenuous.
With the launch of Total Divas, a reality show on E!, in late July, the company has seemingly made a concerted effort to somewhat push the Divas division. As such, losing AJ—the champion of the division—really hurts.
AJ is unarguably the top woman wrestler in the business right now. She is great on the microphone, skilled and athletic inside the ring and has paired up with some of the biggest superstar men in the company.
The company has recognized that talent, as she has held the Divas championship belt for nearly four months now.
For as long as AJ is sidelined, it's hard to imagine there being much interest in the division.
There are certainly some women wrestlers with talent inside the ropes. But not only is there no place for the storyline to go without the champion there, none of the other women is nearly as captivating or popular as AJ, who consistently entertains on every level
Nevertheless, getting healthy, especially from an injury as serious as a concussion, is priority No. 1 right now.
Hopefully—both for the company and for AJ—a speedy recovery is on the horizon.
