Wrestling fans couldn’t stop congratulating her and she feels happy about it. Here is more to this story:
Cassie Lee Reveals She Is Pregnant
Cassie Lee took her Instagram to share a video footage from her sonogram. It shows the side view of her ‘baby bump’. However it doesn’t seem typically noticeable until her second trimester will begin. For the next 12-20 months we can expect her baby bump to grow further. She will be taking break from her wrestling till the time of her delivery. Everyone will not wait patiently for her return. Within the last few weeks Cassie was posting only her modeling photos. This news comes as a surprise to many.
If we talk about AEW star Shawn Spears, he has been away from AEW programming since few months. His last match has been a loss to Wardlow inside a steel cage at Dynamite last May. Until now he was aligned with MJF in the Pinnacle faction. Everyone liked his performance but MJF proved to be better at that day.
Both Cassie and Shawn have had lengthy tenures in WWE. She has had some successful pair of stints for the company and its development system. However, her most successful one was in the beginning of 2013. Shawn has won over many fans in ‘NXT’ and earned a special place at WWE’s main roster. After sometime his momentum seems to be falling.
Later the company requested for his release and the contract ended right away. WWE has released many wrestling stars in 2019 due to budget cuts. He has quickly joined AEW and has been a part of many promotions. The first ever pay-per-view, Double or Nothing has been a hit among the audiences too.
