The only way to see AJ Lee over the last few weeks has been in the background of CM Punk interviews.
She hasn't been seen on WWE screens since losing her rematch of the Divas title to Nikki Bella at TLC, but she was advertised for house shows in her home state of New Jersey this weekend ahead of the Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV). Those bookings fueled rumors that she would be back on Raw very soon.
Unfortunately, AJ's name has been removed from the billboards for this weekend and she is no longer scheduled to appear on the shows. Cards subject to change and all that, but she also posted a brief but not encouraging update on her neck injury in response to a fan on Twitter:

We'll keep you posted on anything else we hear about Ms. Lee, as this will undoubtedly fuel the rumors that have been omnipresent since Punk walked saying she's on her way out of WWE as well.
