In fact, Lita was Punk’s girlfriend from 2012 to 2013 and even his date to the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
They split up a few months after the event, Punk began dating AJ, and now they’re husband and wife.
Beadle and Punk had been acquainted long before Lee’s relationship with Punk began. According to the website, WWE’s social media manager was supposedly asked to wipe his plate clean following a meal in catering.
As Beadle wrote on Twitter on December 15, 2013, “I’ve known CM Punk for years. He allegedly joked that it was Del Rio’s job to clean the plate, which could be perceived as racist by Hispanic people.

The couple got married on June 13, 2014, according to a claim that originated that day on and was described by as a small, private affair.
Widely attainable on social media, the cartoon of AJ in bed with Punk, according to F4WOnline.com, became a big hit in the WWE locker room. And I kept walking along with my assistant and two members of WWE PR.
Reddit user Mets Fan4Ever, a verified WWE insider who has leaked multiple WWE scripts and broke news of JTG’s release from the company, broke news of the marriage.
“CM Punk who was engaged to AJ Lee were officially married this afternoon,” he wrote.
Del Rio was informed of the comment, and confronted him. “There was a reason she wasn’t fired and it had nothing to do with Punk being her boyfriend nor how good a performer she was, although her star power did play into it.” He continued, “The decision was made to fire her but Vince overruled it because he saw the big picture.
The individual did not apologize for his remark and then smiled at him. Meltzer addressed the matter again on the F4message board in response to a user comparing it to Lee’s outburst at Beadle. It’s very complicated, but in that issue, Vince was savvy way beyond those underneath him and saw what would happen long-term and made the big picture smart call.
