- 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.

- Jeff Jarrett, who gave away all of his financial control in TNA when it was sold to Panda Energy (the Carter family) is reportedly looking to buy his way back in. The TNA founder is in talks with Royal Capital Corp to propose some kind of private investment. Of course TNA is under no obligation to give Jarrett a stake, but the Carter’s could see it as a way of hedging future losses, by some of the burden falling on Jarrett.
