Found August 27, 2012 on cheap-heat:
- In a recent interview with JS Online Raw GM AJ Lee, discussed her financial struggles before making it as a wrestler: “I ran into financial problems and couldn’t afford (school) anymore, so I dropped out,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to entertain people, and when I was in school I was interested in creative writing, but wrestling was always there. When I ran into financial problems I just figured when life gives you lemons, you have to make lemonade.” Lee took all her savings and signed up to go to wrestling school. She found a full-time job in the business after that. “The other day in the airport I was walking with (fellow WWE diva) Kaitlyn and people were looking at us and waving because they knew us and they knew me…I remember when I was that girl crying because I was so excited to finally meet Lita. To have girls crying over me is surreal,” Lee said.
