After months of anticipation, the autobiography of former WWE Divas' Champion AJ Mendez Brookes - better known to fans as AJ Lee - has finally been released. The book, entitled Crazy Is My Superpower, offers an honest and open look not just at Lee's wrestling career, but at her entire life. From a traumatic childhood to an uphill battle to make it in the sport she loved, all of the difficulties that Lee faced are detailed in the 288-page narrative.
Fans who followed Lee's career in WWE were privy to some of her roller-coaster ride - her humble beginnings on NXT; her alliances with Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, John Cena, and Dolph Ziggler; her three reigns as Divas' Champion - but like with so many other stars, sometimes what happened on TV wasn't the most interesting part of her story.
