10 Underrated Wrestling Partnerships

9. AJ Lee & Dolph Ziggler

Dolph Ziggler AJ Lee

AJ Lee will be best-remembered as a manipulative, 'borderline-psycho' who played some of WWE's biggest male stars against one another (Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, John Cena, Kane) and excelled as a wild-eyed, unpredictable Raw GM. In-ring, Lee also found time to have stellar matches towards the tail-end of the Diva era.

Oh yeah, and she snogged the lips off Dolph Ziggler as Big E stood stoically in the background.

AJ joined Dolph at TLC 2012 by helping him beat Cena. Later, she explained that John had toyed with her emotions, and used that as justification for almost braining him. Without missing a beat, she and Ziggler started acting like Mickey Knox and Mallory in Natural Born Killers.

Don't get us wrong: Lee's affiliation with Bryan will always be in the back of fan minds, and Dolph has done a lot since she left his side in 2013. That said, there was something fun about seeing the scheming AJ and frat-boy jock confidence of Ziggler collide.
