Michelle Beadle confronted by WWE diva after exchange with CM Punk?

Michelle Beadle's name hasn't popped up too much lately on the sports radar after the former SportsNation host has had an apparent falling out with NBC Sports with the cancelation of her NBCSN show The Crossover. However, her name has been seen in headlines in a place you wouldn't expect.

Beadle was reportedly involved in an incident at WWE's Tribute to the Troops taping in Washington last week. Beadle will serve as the host of the show, which is airing on NBC later this month. On Thursday, Beadle sent out a couple of tweets indicating that there had been some friction in her life.

Then on Sunday, Beadle elaborated with details about the incident…

A report later surfaced that the CM Punk's current girlfriend, WWE diva AJ Lee, was the one who caused the ruckus by confronting Beadle after she spoke with Punk. Whatever happened, it appears Lee is going to be disciplined in some way because the confrontation caused quite the scene backstage. This is WWE's feel-good event of the year and it's now getting marred with talk about an incident involving one of the company's champions and their guest host for the event.

At this point, controversy seems to be following Beadle wherever she goes. Since this is the world of sports entertainment we're talking about, here's guessing it leads to some kind of WrestleMania match between Beadle and Lee.
