AJ’s Victory Speech After Winning the THQ Challenge
• Posted on: March 31st, 2012 by Corrin | Filed Under: Videos, WWE.com | Leave a Comment (0)

WWE Diva AJ often brags about her video game prowess. At WrestleMania Axxess Friday night, she showed it off for her peers.

In a 16-man field of WWE Superstars and Divas, the spunky little “human cheat code” (as referred to by Challenge host Matt Striker) dominated the field to take the trophy as 2012 THQ Superstar Challenge Champion – the first Diva to do so in the popular decade-old event.

AJ quickly dispatched fellow Diva Tamina in the qualifying round of THQ’s “WWE ‘12,” then not-so-secretly almost scored a second win for her boyfriend, World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan, in his matchup against Justin Gabriel. But Gabriel, seeing AJ’s assistance, turned his Xbox 360 controller over to “American Idol” star James Durbin, who accompanied the South African Superstar to the ring.

Durbin sent AJ – and therefore Bryan — packing with a surprise pinfall win. Bryan yelled at his girlfriend before exiting the ring in a huff.

AJ continued on her own to quickly cut The Great Khali down to size in the quarterfinals, then topple Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes in the semifinals to set up a titanic final against The World’s Strongest Man, Mark Henry. Henry’s young son Jacob tried to turn the crowd to support his dad, but with chants of “Yes! Yes! Yes!” roaring through the Miami Beach Convention Center, AJ took down the former World Heavyweight Champion in a spirited five-minute contest.

“This is my first championship,” AJ exclaimed to the cheers of the packed WrestleMania Axxess crowd as she received her championship trophy. “Thank you, everyone, for cheering for me.Now let’s go to WrestleMania and help Daniel (Bryan) win!”

The crowd applause, thankfully, remained polite for the young Diva.
