AJ Lee posted the following tweet today, thanking everyone for her wrestling career. These are her first comments since it was announced that she was retiring from the WWE just days ago. Lee left the company after being on the main roster since 2011.

Many had speculated on how long Lee would remain with the company after the unceremonious exit of her husband, CM Punk, in 2014. AJ also took a couple of extended breaks from the WWE throughout 2014.

Punk himself also posted a message directed towards her retirement several days ago.
