Breaking News: AJ Lee Off Raw Due to Concussion

AJ Lee

WWE.com is reporting that AJ Lee will not be at Raw tonight due to a concussion suffered at Battleground.  She is suffering from “concussion-like symptoms” and is having “headaches and some difficulty remembering her match.”

Last night on Pay-Per-View she defended her Divas Championship against Brie Bella.  During the course of the match, she apparently struck her head against the turnbuckle.  AJ eventually emerged victorious after help from Tamina.

AJ Lee’s future availability is up in the air depending on how her symptoms progress.  Doctors want to see improvement before issuing an impact test.

Stay tuned to Between the Ropes for full coverage.

WWE Battleground 2013 Reaction and Review

Hot opening to last night’s WWE, with Damien Sandow and Dolph Ziggler squaring off in a ‘battle of the dog house’ match. Both men have been on an incredible losing streak – that is, incredible in the “I can’t believe these two men are getting buried like this” way. But credit to both Ziggler and Sandow here. They took a terrible slot and made it entertaining, and did their duty by selling a few more Pay-Per-Views along the way. I’m also happy Ziggler walked away with the much deserved win. This might not have been the match of the night, but it was at least in the top three. [Read more...]
