The latest edition of “Wrestling Observer Radio” with Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez suggests that there is some backstage heat on AJ Lee due to the amount of time off she has taken from in-ring competition over the last year. As previously seen, Lee took time off immediately following WrestleMania XXX, returned in June of 2014, only to leave again for three months following “WWE TLC” in December of 2014.

As noted in the spoilers for the March 26 edition of “Smackdown,” WWE recorded a segment featuring Lee, Paige, and the Bellas following the March 23 edition of “Monday Night Raw.” According to fan reports from the arena, the segment was really good between the Divas, and gives the WWE Universe possibly the best verbal exchange between females on the main roster in quite sometime.

During this segment, WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella reportedly took a shot at Lee for being gone so much over the last year. She told Lee that WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar has defended his title more times than Lee did when she was Divas Champion. While this statistic isn’t true, it was a knock at Lee’s time spent away from the ring.

Many, including Meltzer, are wondering whether Nikki was scripted to say her comments about Lee’s time away, or if she merely went off-book and said what she wanted to. Meltzer claims that if the slight makes it to air on March 26, then it was likely written for her to say. If not, it may get cut out of the segment.

Editor’s Note:

It will be interesting to see just how “good” this segment is…because…I’m trying to picture it being good…and…I just, I just can’t. Nikki Bella…GOOD…ON THE MIC?
