On social media as well as in arenas, AJ Lee is one of the most influential Divas and a rising star, involving her “crazy chick” character. The spunky and diminutive AJ, who comes across as shy off-screen has commented on how her current wrestling role differs from the norm and why she thinks the fans are responding to it. In an article with USA Today, AJ says:
“I love the in-ring work, but as a fan I love the dramatic stuff more than anything,” says Lee, a self-admitted “nerd” who hopes to inspire little girls the same way WWE women did for her when she was 12.
She continues: “This day and age, there needs to be a girl who’s not wearing as much makeup and isn’t that pampered-up and fancy. There’s a place for that, but there’s also a place for a girl I think fans want to hang out with and see themselves in.”
