Michelle Beadle had a backstage incident with CM Punk’s girlfriend A.J. Lee at the taping for WWE Tribute to the Troops last week, and she addressed it on Twitter Sunday.

Beadle is the host for the Tribute to the Troops show, which was filmed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington last week and will air on NBC on Dec. 28. Beadle says she said something to Punk backstage. Lee allegedly confronted her over it and got wild and crazy. WWE PR reps supposedly had to address the matter with Lee.

Here’s what Beadle tweeted on Sunday:

A report says Lee is expected to be disciplined over the incident and that Punk was upset with WWE officials for the way they handled it. Lee’s defense supposedly was that she was instructed to stay in character and that’s why she confronted Beadle.

Beadle first hinted at the incident by sending these tweets on Thursday:

Some felt that Punk showed his unhappiness with WWE for the way they handled the incident in this tweet:

I don’t know what to make of the incident since we’re only hearing one side of the story, but I do know this: I can’t hear someone say “f— face” without thinking of the classic Billy Ripken baseball card (check the knob of the bat).

Billy Ripken fuck face

Thanks for at least bringing that up for us, Michelle. And LBS will always be #teambeadle.
