It has been exactly six years to this day that WWE legend AJ Lee won her second Divas Championship.
It was on June 30, 2014 that AJ Lee would begin her second reign as WWE Divas Champion. Following an almost three-month hiatus, Lee would return to the organization on RAW and confront the reigning champ, Paige. She baited Paige into giving her a rematch for the belt and was successful.
Take a look at the historic moment in the video below.
Lee would eventually drop the title back to Paige at the Summerslam 2014 event. She would capture the belt on one more occasion, defeating Paige and Nikki Bella in a triple-threat match at Night of Champions 2014.
Lee, along with Eve Torres, hold the record for most WWE Divas Championship reigns at three. Lee also holds the record for being the second longest reigning Divas Champion at 295 days during her first reign, behind Nikki Bella who held it for 301 days in her second reign.
AJ was one of the most popular female superstars during her era. In a time when women in the WWE generally weren’t given the same opportunities as the men, AJ’s extreme popularity and hard-work forced the organization to give the female talent more airtime. The WWE legend is no doubt deserving of a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame and truly paved the way for the female superstars of today.
