WWE gives an injury update on AJ Lee
WWE.com posted the following before last night’s 10/14 WWE RAW in St. Louis:
Last week, Divas Champion AJ Lee was sent home from Pittsburgh’s CONSOL Energy Center with concussion-like symptoms following her title defense against Brie Bella at last night’s WWE Battleground pay-per-view, rendering her unable to compete in tonight’s episode of Raw.
“We spoke with AJ and she informed us that … she struck her head against the turnbuckle and was having headaches and some difficulty remembering her match,” WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann told WWE.com. “We examined her and noted that she had some problems with balance and memory recall. She was, therefore, diagnosed with a concussion, instructed to rest and not do anything either physically or psychologically strenuous.”
Dr. Amann went on to say that the Divas Champion’s availability would depend on the results of her follow-up tests. “She was re-evaluated today and was still having some symptoms so we are currently waiting for her symptoms to improve before administering an impact test,” he said.
UPDATE: WWE.com can confirm that AJ has been medically cleared to compete and will be present at tonight’s Raw at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo.
AJ appeared on last night’s 10/14 WWE RAW in the corner of Tamina in her match with Brie Bella and got involved afterwards by attacking Brie.
