Normally I’d say to take all dirt sheet rumors with several bowls of salt, but I want to believe this too much to squash it. Mexican wrestling icon and WCW alum Konnan went on the MLW Radio podcast and said that the WWE‘s CM Punk and AJ Lee were dating for reals.
Granted, Konnan learned this second hand from his source within the WWE, but he said “I would also to say that I found that AJ Lee is dating CM Punk, I don’t know if that’s public knowledge.” Podcast co-host Court Bauer then asked Konnan, “He’s done with Lita?” and Konnan said “Yep.”
This (sparse, questionable) news also comes on the heels of this photo being taken of Punk and AJ at a Cubs game a few weeks back…
EWrestlingNews also reported that, after the podcast, fans took to Twitter to ask Punk about AJ, prompting him to block them.
True or not, I’m going to let this idea of them being a real couple take hold and plant seed within my mind. And it will blossom beautifully.
