AJ DISCUSSES WHY THE FANS CONNECT WITH HER, CM PUNK AS AQUAMAN? AND MORE WWE NEWS

ESPN.com interviewed AJ Lee, discussing her love of videogames, her new role as GM and more at this link. When asked about connecting with the audience, Lee commented, "I think the important thing is that I’ve never tried to be someone I’m not. People can read right through that. There’s a place for people who are unattainable where you want to have their poster on your wall because they’re larger than life, and that’s fine, but that’s not me. I’m not the coolest person in the world. I’m not the sexiest Diva or the strongest Diva. I know who I am. I’m not the most popular person and I’m kind of dorky and I’m someone you can see at your school or as your neighbor, and I think people like that. I think I’m a girl that represents someone you might know or would like to hang out with, and I think people just relate to me. I also look like I’m about 14, [laughs] so maybe I look like I do go to high school with everyone. I just think it’s cool that people have taken to me. Before I was on the show, I was a fan, and I think people can see that."

CM Punk talked WWE and comics with the The Chicago Sun-Times to promote his appearance at Wizard World this weekend. He said winning the WWE title in November at Survivor Series was the highlight of his career. Interesting to hear him say that over Money in the Bank in Chicago. He talked a lot about his love of comics and when asked about doing a comic character for a TV show or film, noted he'd do anything "even Aquaman" if he was asked. Vincent Chase, move over.

A few readers sent word that on his radio show yesterday, Colin Cowheard went a tirade about CM Punk knocking the Jon Jones Nike deal, basically saying Punk had no right to give his opinion since he's a wrestler and is in an industry where all the wrestlers die young. Yeah, that sounds like a convincing argument to me too.

China Post featured a preview of the Smackdown event in Taiwan at this link. Bill sent along this link to some minimalist artwork based on 1980s WWF personalities.

WWE Hall of Famer Mike Tyson's one man show on Broadway "The Undisputed Truth" made $624,496 in its first six performances the week of 8/5, drawing 5,183 to the Longacre Theater in NYC.
