Report: AJ Lee on hiatus from WWE

She gone.

Just yesterday, a script for this past Monday night's episode of Raw was leaked that showed both AJ Lee and CM Punk listed as "injured". Naturally, fans reacted in wonder regarding what this means about the status of both. Bryan Alvarez addressed as much in the latest edition of the Bryan & Vinny Show at the Wrestling Observer:

"For those of you asking about why AJ and CM Punk were listed on the injured reserve (on the leaked Raw script), that list does not necessarily mean 'injured'. It is a place that you put people and by putting them in the injured reserve list, people ask fewer questions. That's how it was described to me. I believe that AJ asked for time off. She's not hurt, and obviously CM Punk is not hurt. Punk, like I said, I don't expect to see him back. AJ will probably be back but she's also engaged to CM Punk and you never know. Far more likely she will be back but right now she's on hiatus."

AJ had her near 300-day title reign abruptly come to an end when she was pinned in short order by a debuting Paige on the April 7, 2014, episode of Raw the night after WrestleMania 30. When she failed to appear on SmackDown, Raw, and then a number one contender battle royal was held on Main Event last night and she wasn't a part of it, questions were raised.

There's your answer.

Because she's engaged to Punk, expect there to be speculation that there are issues within WWE but that doesn't seem to be the case, though there's no way to be sure. Either way, she's gone for now.

Sorry, Cagesiders.
