A.J. Lee Talks About Keeping Her Mental Illness a Secret in WWE

Former WWE Divas Champion A.J. Lee recently appeared on The Dean Obeidallah Show and talked about her autobiography, Crazy Is My Superpower. She also talked about her real-life struggle with bipolar disorder and how she tried to keep it a secret behind the scenes in WWE:

"Fate brought me to this character who was labeled the 'Crazy Chick.'"

“Nobody knew that I was suffering from bipolar disorder in real life. And so, it really felt like hiding in plain sight and letting all my aggression out. My craziest, darkest moments, my brattiest moments, in front of millions of people on live television, I got to let that all out and expose all of that while still keeping my secret.”

“If I didn’t have a healthy outlet for my bipolar disorder, I would just be at home, breaking walls and doors. So to be able to let that out and say, these are the things that I’d be ashamed of being or I’m afraid to be, these are the things I try not to be, or I’m so scared of becoming one day, and to just say ‘screw it,’ let me be the worst version of myself on TV and make it fun. And people loved it. They were able to connect to that because they feel those flaws inside of them.”
