AJ Lee's Reevaluation (2015)

Her name is AJ Lee and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about the former WWE Divas Champion. Here's the full evaluation.

What you loved:

  1. All-Around Talent - Tough to say she's "the best", but hard to argue that she is great at everything it takes to become a successful wrestler. AJ is able to work with anything that's given to her, solid on the mic and in the ring. She has a fantastic finishers (Black Widow and Shining Wizard), as well.
  2. High Road - "CM Punk! CM Punk!" - AJ simply went on her way ignoring these silly chants, for the most part.
  3. Mic - One of the best on the mic in the company, whether it's shredding other women, or getting creepy Lawler away from her.
  4. Selling Ability - She is in that elite tier with Ziggler and Rollins.
  5. No Total Divas - Whether it's her choice or not, you guys are glad she's not anywhere near that show.

Best comment comes via ReverendKain:

"Taking the longevity record for the Divas Championship from Maryse."


What you loathed:

  1. Creative - AJ has potential to do so much more, but she's given stupid storylines and short matches that don't allow for anything...creative.
  2. Crazy Gimmick - She plays it well, but the gimmick itself for women has become old and tired.
  3. Paige Feud - Matches were good, but the story was weird with way too much skipping involved.
  4. Slow Year - Between getting married and nursing a neck injury, her year mainly involved getting Paige and The Bellas over.
  5. Bella Feud - Speaking of the Bellas, her two big matches against Nikki ended with a kiss and hairspray...*sigh*

Best comments comes via Flyin' Ryan:

"Creative has yet to come up with a Trish to match her Lita, and it hurts the Diva’s division as a whole. When you cram 14 Divas into a WrestleMania match, it speaks volumes about any individual rivalries you failed to create."

On to the poll! With 744 votes, AJ Lee's average score is 4.4, last year she received a 4.5.

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick evolved in 2014.

Until then!
