WWE Issues Statement On Divas Champ AJ Lee Collapsing At Live Event In England

As reported earlier today, WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee collapsed during her match against Brie Bella at tonight’s WWE live event in London, England.

According to some attendees at the show, Lee fell off the ring apron and hit the floor. The match was called off and she was tended to at ringside by medical personnel and subsequently assisted to the backstage area.

Regarding the matter, WWE issued the following statement to PWInsider.com: “Tonight in London, WWE Diva AJ Lee briefly fainted during a match with Brie Bella due to dehydration. She is currently being evaluated by WWE medical staff.”

ProWrestling.net reached out to a WWE source at the show to ask whether Lee is going to be okay. The source gave a simple “yes” response, and added that there has been no determination yet as to what caused her to collapse.

This is a developing story, stay tuned for updates.

Today’s show in London marks as the tenth day of WWE’s grueling two-week tour across Europe, which has been described as exhausting.

    I hope that man she comes to the ring with was able to catch her.

      Because Brie can’t wrestle

      How can Brie be blamed for AJ being dehydrated? At least use some common sense before making a comment.

    I was in the 4th row at the event and saw it as it happened.
    She tagged in Tamina and stood on the apron for about a minute with her head down before climbing off the apron to the floor. Soon after she collapsed at ringside (my friends and I kept saying how it reminded us of HBK collapsing in the 90s).
    The ref gave the crossed arms signal and The Bellas won the match with a quick roll up.
    AJ was down for maybe 5 mins. Eventually Dave Finlay came to ringside and helped her to her feet, giving her some water to drink.
    She walked out with the help of a trainer, along with Tamina and Finlay (the crowd cheering her name).
