Former WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee recently spoke with The New York Post to promote her new book, "Crazy Is My Superpower" and revealed during the interview that WWE pulled her from television for several months because she refused to participate in a storyline which she deemed personally offensive.
The planned storyline, which was pitched in 2012 would have seen Lee's character “take part in a series of goofy skits in which her character hallucinated, kissed a leprechaun and danced with dinosaurs from outer space.”
Lee said she refused to take part in the storyline, citing her mother's battle with Bipolar Disorder as the reason because she didn't find the angle amusing.
“It was a joke, but, to me, it wasn’t something to laugh at,” Lee said. “It’s hard to not think you’re alone in the world so it’s good to connect with other people who’ve faced the same issues.”
