Report: AJ Lee taking an “indefinite leave of absence from WWE”

After dropping the Divas Championship last week to the debuting Paige, AJ Lee is taking an indefinite leave of absence from WWE.

Conspicuous by her absence Monday night on Raw was the New Jersey native, who many would have expected to address the young upstart one week after she ended her record-setting 295-day title reign. Lee was absent Monday night in Birmingham, Alabama — the script for the episode leaked Tuesday night and she was listed as INJ – TBD. In other words, injured, and her return is to be determined. However, it should be noted that Alberto Del Rio was denoted with the same label, and he appeared in the main event against all three members of The Shield.

Figure Four Weekly editor Bryan Alvarez offered a clue in regards to Lee’s whereabouts on the F4WOnline.com message board Tuesday night. He stated, “I believe AJ asked for time off.”

Lee’s services may not be required until at least after Extreme Rules since she is not getting an immediate championship rematch against Paige. Her partner in crime, Tamina Snuka, won a Divas Championship No. 1 Contender Battle Royal on WWE Main Event to secure a title shot on May 4, 2014 at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
