WWE News: AJ Lee's Book to become TV Show
What’s the story?
Former Divas Champion AJ Lee informed fans, through her official website, that her book, Crazy is My Superpower, will be made into a TV Show.
In case you didn’t know...
Lee signed with the WWE through the developmental brand, Florida Championship Wrestling back in 2009. She would eventually make it to the main roster in 2011 and would go on to become the General Manager of Monday Night Raw and a 3-time Divas Champion.
She retired from professional wrestling the night after WrestleMania 31 and held the record as the longest reigning Divas Champion before she was surpassed by Nikki Bella.
The heart of the matter
The following press release was released on Lee’s website, theajmendez.com.
LOS ANGELES, December 19, 2017—EUE/Sokolow, an Emmy-nominated production company behind Nat Geo’s “Genius” franchise, and producer Jeff Fisher are bringing AJ Mendez’s New York Times Best Seller “Crazy is my Superpower: How I Triumphed by Breaking Bones, Breaking Hearts, and Breaking the Rules” to television. The bestselling book chronicles former WWE wrestler AJ Mendez’s unlikely rise to stardom after growing up in poverty and enduring years of abuse. Mendez will serve as an Executive Producer and writer on the project.
Lee said that she was “thrilled” to work on the story and that sharing her story from her perspective was important for women, especially in this time.
Lee's booked largely focuses on her upbringing, her struggles with being bipolar and her career in the world of professional wrestling, so expect the TV Show to include most of these elements.
The project was recently announced, so there’s no timetable on when the show is expected to begin filming and what medium the show will air on.
Expect more information to be revealed in 2018.
This is fantastic news for AJ Lee. Hopefully, her TV show proves to be a big success and a chance for her to share her story with a larger audience.
