– Former WWE Superstar AJ Lee recently spoke to MMA Uncaged ahead of the return of WOW-Women of Wrestling, where she’s serving as an executive producer and broadcast commentator. Lee discussed training MMA with her husband CM Punk and a potential wrestling return.

When asked if she ever trained in mixed martial arts, similar to her husband CM Punk, she stated (via Fightful), “I mean, look, I’ve loved training in — all kinds of training. So I’ve definitely like gone to train [MMA] and it’s fun.”

AJ Lee added on if there are people in her ear encouraging her to get back into the ring, she stated: “But all of the bugs of wrestling and all those things, there are definitely many people in my ear, trying to get me to do things and we’re gonna take it slow. We’re going to start with WOW, we’re gonna start with commentating and producing, and, you know, just one step at a time.”

WOW – Women of Wrestling will return with nationwide syndication starting September 17. The show will be airing on the following station groups in the US: CBS-owned-and-operated stations, Sinclair Communications, Nexstar Broadcasting, Hearst Television, TEGNA Media, Weigel Broadcasting, Gray Media, and Cox Television.
