- April Jeanette Mendez grew up in a poor family in Union City, New Jersey. Aspiring to become a professional wrestler from the age of 12, she was trained by Jay Lethal, whom she also dated for several years, and made her debut on the New Jersey independent circuit in September 2007 under the name Miss April.
- Her most notable work on the indies came in Women Superstars Uncensored (WSU), where she held the Tag Team titles alongside Brooke Carter, and won the 2009 King & Queen Tournament teaming with her trainer Lethal.
- In May 2009 she signed a developmental contract with WWE, and debuted in their Florida Championship Wrestling Developmental Territory under the name April Lee, which was soon tweaked to AJ Lee. While in FCW she held both the Divas championship and the Queen of FCW crown.
- She was first called up to the WWE main roster in 2010 as part of season 3 of NWA SAW, where she finished 3rd, before returning to FCW and re-debuting in May 2011 as the tag team partner of fellow NXT contestant Kaitlyn. The pair were informally dubbed the The Chickbusters.
- 2012 saw AJ become the most prominently featured female talent in WWE. After her on-screen boyfriend Daniel Bryan dumped her for inadvertently causing his World Heavyweight title loss at Wrestlemania 28, the once nerdy, down-to-Earth girl-next-door AJ became increasingly manipulative, unhinged and erratic, leading her to be dubbed WWE’s resident ’crazy chick.’
- She figured prominently in the build to the triple threat match for the WWE title at June’s No Way Out pay-per-view between Bryan, CM Punk and Kane, passionately kissing and teasing affection for all three participants, and served as guest referee for the title match between Punk and Bryan at Money in the Bank the following month. Two weeks later, she abandoned Bryan at the altar during their in-ring ceremony on the 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw, accepting an offer from Vince McMahon to become the show’s on-screen General Manager, a position she held until November, when she resigned over allegations of an affair with John Cena, fabricated by her bitter predecessor Vickie Guerrero.
- AJ ended 2012 by turning heel in the ladder match main event of December’s TLC pay-per-view, betraying Cena by pushing him from the ladder and allowing his opponent Dolph Ziggler to score victory. Ziggler then became AJ’s latest on-screen romance, with the pair soon joined by enforcer Big E Langston. In June 2013, AJ captured her first WWE Divas championship from former partner turned bitter rival Kaitlyn, holding it for a record 295 days. She and Ziggler went there separate ways after AJ’s interference in Dolph’s World Heavyweight title match with Alberto del Río at Money in the Bank caused him to be disqualified, leading to a tag team match at Summerslam where Ziggler and Kaitlyn defeated AJ and Langston.
- AJ held the title for a record 295 days, becoming the first champion to defend it at Wrestlemania when she prevailed in the 10-woman ’Vickie Guerrero Invitational’ match at Wrestlemania 30 in April 2014, before dropping it to the debuting Paige on Raw the following night, after which AJ was absent from television for several months.
- She returned in June as a babyface and feuded with Paige, holding the belt a further two times. Her second reign lasted from her comeback on Raw in June to Summerslam in August, and her third from Night of Champions in September to Survivor Series in November, when Nikki Bella defeated her thanks to a distraction in the form of Nikki’s twin sister Brie Bella unexpectedly kissing AJ, a reference to the sequence of events that led to AJ costing Bryan his title at Wrestlemania 28.
- After another multi-month absence while she recovered from neck and back injuries, AJ returned once again in March 2015, aligning with her former rival Paige to face a common enemy in the form of the Bellas. This culminated in AJ and Paige defeating Nikki and Brie in a tag team match at Wrestlemania 31. The following week, WWE announced that AJ had retired from in-ring competition.
- She married Phil Brooks, better known as CM Punk, on June 13 2014.
