+ AJ Lee Interviewed by The Gameological Society

Gameological: Do you find yourself in a minority backstage, being a gamer?
Lee: With the girls, definitely. I wanted to talk about being really excited about Resident Evil coming out, and there’s no one, people in locker room going, “Uh…” and I’m like, “Let me go find Kofi [Kingston].” [Laughs.] I think there’s a bigger amount of people now. There used to be a different generation of people that were into partying or hanging out. Now we’re getting all nerdy, and there are comic books and video games. So amongst the guys I’m not a minority, but definitely amongst the girls.
Gameological: You have not been in any previous WWE games before, but you are now going to be in WWE ’13. Have you had a chance to play as yourself yet?
Lee: Yesterday we had a THQ press event [THQ is the game’s publisher—ed.], and I had no idea that they’d be able to download me, because I’m DLC [downloadable content], and so I thought I’d have to wait a couple months. But they somehow had the technology to download me to play as myself. And I lost it. I was taking pictures of the screen, and sending it to my parents. It was unreal. It says a lot, but I’ve played all the Smackdown Vs. Raws, and the games for the past 10 years, and have always created myself in the game. I was able to do this, and I was like, “I want to see myself in the ring against everybody,” and I would always make myself much cooler than I thought I would actually be. [Laughs.] I wanted to be a ninja or something. But to actually see it, and it looks exactly like me, and she has all my moves, and my outfit. It’s so bizarre, surreal, and nice. I had such a fangirl moment. It was a big thing.
