WWE News: Why Did WWE Decide To Have an IC Title Contender's Tournament, AJ Lee Taking Time Off

Where is AJ?
- The original plans for RAW didn't include a tournament to decide the #1 contender for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. The first round matches took place because WWE didn't get good news about the recovery time of Christian. Christian suffered a concussion several weeks ago and hasn't received clearance to return. WWE had planned a feud between Christian and Big E but had to change plans due to the injury.
- AJ Lee has asked for time off from the WWE. In the RAW script, she was listed as "injured-TBD", but she isn't actually injured. Her time off may also explain last week's title change.
