From former WWE Divas Champion to damsel in distress, AJ Brooks (formerly known as AJ Lee) certainly knows how to make a career for herself.
Brooks, the wife of former WWE Superstar CM Punk, recently made an appearance in an ad for the upcoming Madden NFL 16 video game, starring alongside the likes of Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Javier Bardem.
NFL stars Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots, Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan, and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick are also featured.
Brooks retired as an active competitor from wrestling on April 3, with WWE stated on its official website: “AJ Lee (April Mendez) has decided to retire from in-ring competition with WWE. We wish AJ the very best.”
She last competed on pay-per-view at WrestleMania 31, teaming with Paige to defeat Nikki and Brie Bella. She then wrestled the following night in her final match, teaming with Paige and Naomi to defeat Nikki, Brie and Natalya.
Brooks ended her run as a three-time Divas Champion for a combined 406 days, a record Nikki Bella is slowly approaching.
