WWE on “Damage Control” for AJ Lee Confronting Michelle Beadle

Posted by Steve Carrier on Sunday, December 15th, 2013


Allegations of a backstage incident between WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee and NBC personality Michelle Beadle at last Wednesday’s Tribute to the Troops event in Pierce County, Washington is currently a huge topic of discussion among company employees at tonight’s WWE TLC pay-per-view event in Houston, Texas. People who generally don’t acknowledge these types of online stories at shows are even offering their thoughts.

Multiple accounts of the story, which was originally reported this morning by Dave Meltzer on F4WOnline.com, are floating online, with some people affiliated with WWE attempting damage control in order to protect Lee’s brand and reputation—PWInsider.com is claiming that Lee did not approach Beadle out of jealousy toward her chatting up with boyfriend CM Punk, but rather, calmly appeared in his defense for speaking to him in a “disrespectful tone.” Meltzer, however, is saying that his version of the story, with Lee going on a bizarre, obscenity-laced tirade toward the popular television personality and behaving similar to her eccentric on-screen character, is completely legitimate.

“I’ve talked to several there. Everything is damage control now,” Meltzer remarked this afternoon on the F4WOnline.com in response to conflicting accounts of the incident online. “According to more than one there, she cussed out Beadle and they were very upset, partially because Beadle was brought in as a host and it was a show when they were trying to put their best foot forward, saying it was a bigger deal because it was Tribute to the Troops. Four different people today and one last night including one person who got it from top management explained it the same way.”

“Even one person trying to defend her admitted she was way out of line and nuts, but said she overreacted because she knew Punk and Beadle had a short-lived deal.

“It’s way bigger than I reported last night as of 1 p.m. Central time in Houston. It is the story in the locker room, even backstage people who aren’t usually talking about such things are are all talking about it.”

It should be noted that WWE officials invited Meltzer to last week’s press conference in Santa Clara, California to announce Levi’s Stadium as the location of WrestleMania 31 in 2015, with Stephanie McMahon addressing her role as new role as WWE Chief Brand Officer to him.

Lee’s reign as Divas Champion could end tonight as she is scheduled to defend her title at WWE TLC against Natalya.

    Meltzer doesn’t know crap he is known to make up news. Apparently it was not that bad she is still Divas Champion. Also Michelle Beadle is not bothered by it. She took it as a joke and is calling the reports ridiculous and lame. Meltzer needs to shut up acting like he knows all cause he is always wrong!

    Everyone knows Dave Meltzer is WWE lap dog, for some reason he has every backstage news before everyone else, yet when it comes to talking about guys like Cena, HHH, or Vince he never knows what’s happening. Luckily AJ kept the title (even if for one more night) so at least they didn’t just crushed her, the sad part is that I can’t even count the number of times Orton has been accused of attacking fans, or Jack Swagger getting a DIU, or Cena back when the whole affair deal was going on and yet those guys never lost their breaks, AJ who is probably the closes thing to a female wrestler they have right now is about to get screwed just for defending the image of her boyfriend.
