Crazy Is My Superpower
ABOUT CRAZY IS MY SUPERPOWER
From beloved three-time WWE champion and Diva AJ Brooks, a raw and inspirational memoir about how her greatest weakness became the very means for her success, in the ring and in life
Recently retired WWE superstar AJ Brooks is a powerhouse—strong, sassy, quirky, and totally confident. But that wasn’t always the case. Growing up, AJ was a quiet girl living in poverty, enduring familial abuse, and trying to act “normal” when she felt anything but. She was afraid of her powerful and erratic emotions, and struggled to hide how crazy she really felt. But when AJ dropped out of school to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a professional wrestler, she discovered that “crazy” was exactly what she needed to succeed. She fought back against industry pressure to dress more provocatively because “sex sells” and instead created her own character that was a genuine representation of herself: nerdy, enthusiastic, and a little bit crazy. Her enormous success in the WWE was on her terms after she carved her own path in the male-dominated sport, inspiring a huge fan base of young women.
Charting her incredible journey from a scrappy girl in an unstable home to the empowering “superhero” WWE persona televised to 30 million homes worldwide—Crazy Is My Superpower is an honest and emotional story of the long road to self-acceptance. Written with humor and heart, AJ’s story will captivate her legion of WWE fans, as well as her fans within the gamer/ComicCon crowd.
