WWE diva AJ Lee reveals tough childhood before becoming pro wrestling superstar
New York, Dec 2(ANI): World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) diva AJ Lee has revealed her hardest knocks happened before she became a pro wrestling superstar.
Next to a row of trophies and trading cards in her office, the most popular woman in the WWE keeps a golden nameplate from Pathmark supermarket, a reminder of life before the ring.
"I liked being a janitor more than that. You're on your feet all day. People kind of look right through you," the New York Daily News quoted AJ, as saying.
Before life as a WWE Diva, scraping for cash was the norm. AJ spent a hard-knock childhood eating at food banks and living in cars and motel rooms across the Garden State.
"I didn't have the easiest time growing up; it's no secret. We were just poor," AJ said.
But she grew up watching wrestling on TV, and told her family at age 12 she wanted a career in the ring, and after working the independent circuit in her late teens, she was signed by the WWE at age 21.
In her whirlwind career, AJ has run the ring, worked as general manager for 'Raw' and won fans over with her steamy, on-screen romance with wrestler John Cena is a no easy feat for a self-described comic book geek who hardly fits the voluptuous mold of a typical Diva.
"Selling the package as me was really hard. I'm not the sexy girl. I'm more youthful and innocent, the girl who wears jeans and T-shirts and sneakers," AJ said.
"But fans have accepted that I'm a tomboy. There's a different group of people who find that attractive," she added. (ANI)
