Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentAJ Mendez Brooks Bio – Smartasses Magazine April Jeanette Mendez Brooks (born March 19, 1987) is an American professional wrestler and actress. Mendez is of Puerto Rican heritage, and grew up in Union City, New Jersey. After graduating from Memorial High School in 2005, she attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in New York City where she majored in writing and film & television production. Mendez married Phil CM Punk Brooks on June 13, 2014. They reside in both Chicago, Illinois, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Mendez cited her brother’s interest in WWE as an influence to pursue a professional wrestling career when she was twelve years old. She worked several jobs after high school, including janitorial work at a daycare as well as cashiering & secretarial work in order to save up the money she needed to both support her family, and eventually enroll in wrestling school. Shortly after leaving university, Mendez enrolled in a wrestling school one mile away from her house. She worked full-time to pay the tuition and started training in March 2007 under Jay Lethal. Mendez debuted on September 29, 2007, under the ring name Miss April, wrestling on the New Jersey independent circuit. She joined the New Jersey-based promotion Women Superstars Uncensored in October 2008. In May 2009, Mendez signed a contract with the WWE, after she took part in a tryout camp that she paid $1,500 to attend. She was assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), the WWE’s developmental territory, and debuted under the ring name April Lee at a television taping in August. Shortly thereafter, her name was changed to AJ Lee. In February 2010, Mendez defeated Serena Mancini to win the Queen of FCW title. On August 31, 2010, she was announced as one of the six participants in the all-female third season of NXT, with Primo serving as her WWE pro. Mendez began portraying a fan favorite role on the show, with the WWE adapting her real life comic book and video game fandom to her character. On the May 27, 2011 episode of SmackDown!, she made her main roster debut alongside Kaitlyn as a tag team, referring to themselves as The Chickbusters. In 2012, Mendez rose to prominence through several storylines, such as relationships with wrestlers and a three-month stint as the General Manager of Raw. In subsequent years, she won the Divas Championship a record-tying three times. She also won the Diva of the Year Slammy Award twice in 2012 and 2014, and was voted Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s Woman of the Year for an unprecedented three consecutive years (2012–2014). She retired from in-ring competition in 2015.

Mendez has the numbers 6, 16, and 13 tattooed in tally marks on the back of her neck to commemorate her first WWE Divas Championship win on June 16, 2013. She describes her family’s experience growing up as having to live in motels and other people’s houses. Mendez was previously in a relationship with her trainer Jay Lethal and is best friends with WWE Diva Kaitlyn. She enjoys video games and was the winner of WWE’s WWE ’12 tournament at WrestleMania XXVIII Axxess. Mendez became a fan of comic books in the fourth grade and her favorite series’ are X-Men, Spider-Man, and the Fantastic Four. As for characters, her favorites include Harley Quinn, Cyclops and Jean Grey. Mendez has a cupboard dedicated entirely to her collection of Converse Chuck Taylors. She is an avid animal welfare advocate, and in 2015, appeared in an ASPCA campaign to end dog fighting.

Why we think she’s hot:

Since Miss Mendez is all about the comic books, let’s look at it this way: If Smartasses Magazine were Asgard, where Mighty Thor tends to hang out on occasion, not only would the Geek Goddess AJ Lee have her own throne within our halls, we’d be damn sure she was immediately booked into a no-disqualification match for Odin’s seat as well. Being a geek girl with kick-butt-cuteness and a fondness for Converse Chuck Taylors is alone worth a golden ticket to glory in our book, but what we admire most about AJ is her drive. That said, it goes without saying that one of the darkest days in all of history was the day she gave the middle finger to Vince, and left the WWE.
