Former WWE Superstar and multi-time Diva’s World Champion, AJ Mendez-Brooks (Formerly AJ Styles) spoke with Chuch Carroll on CBS. One of the many topics they discussed besides her new book Crazy is my Superpower: How I Triumphed by Breaking Bones, Breaking Hearts, and Breaking the rules.

She was asked about returning to the ring:

Wrestling’s old adage: never say never. I’m sure you are asked this all the time so let me be the one millionth and one person to ask you this. Will we ever see AJ Lee back in a wrestling ring?

I never would say that because I’ve personally said never to things before and done them. But I am so happy where I am right now and I feel like I had such a pitch perfect career that I would be nervous about tarnishing that. I feel like it’s kind of full-circle and perfect for exactly what I wanted. But who knows?

Watch AJ Lee win the WWE Divas Championship for the third time

Lauren Duski took the time out of her busy schedule to talk to Ruben Jay on the Voice Off Podcast. Lauren talks about how nervous she was during her blind auditions and what it was like working with Randy Travis.

ABOUT:

With a resume of experience dating back to a very young age, Lauren has developed into a multi-talented singer, songwriter, and performer. Originally from Gaylord, Michigan, she has been performing in front of audiences since the age of 7. Several local performances in her hometown led to many years of traveling across Northern Michigan with a band, performing classic country hits. Those shows allowed her the opportunity to open for acts including: Lonestar, Randy Travis, Confederate Railroad, and Bill Anderson. She began songwriting in middle school after getting her first guitar. She started posting videos of original songs and covers on Youtube while in high school, gaining significant views worldwide. Later as a student at the University of Michigan, Lauren focused more on songwriting but managed to keep up with local performances opening for Gloriana and Thompson Square. After graduating in the spring of 2013 with her Bachelors of Science in Biopsychology, Cognition and Neuroscience, she put her plans of attending dental school aside. She spent a few months in Chicago after graduation with opportunities to record original and commercial material, but Nashville became home in early 2014. There, she hit the ground running with songwriters such as Bill Luther (Tim McGraw), and has been crafting a group of songs that she considers her best work to date. Lauren’s heartfelt songwriting, along with her sultry, yet powerful vocals, leave listeners wanting more.
