The Chick Busters are a professional wrestling women's tag team consisting of AJ Lee and Kaitlyn in WWE. The duo were previously contestants on the all-women season of NXT, AJ coming third and Kaitlyn winning the competition. At the start of the season they were initially at odds but after Kaitlyn's Heel Face Turn their real-life friendship started to show on screen. When AJ joined the main roster the two of them were paired to become an official tag team.

Tropes associated with the Chick Busters include:


 Kaitlyn: "so now i'm single :("

Ryse Ouellet (Maryse): ‎-,-' ; my poor Celeste you need to see me ;)

  • Fan Nickname: "Chick Busters" was originally this as they joked about it on Twitter (naming themselves after the similar tag team "The Dude Busters") before it eventually became official and acknowledged on TV. AJ's is also "Geek Goddess".
  • Fragile Speedster: AJ
  • Genki Girl: Both of them.
  • Girl Next Door: Defied by Kaitlyn, claiming she lived three doors down and put a firecracker in everyone's mailbox every 4th of July. AJ is suppose to be this as well with a more modern spin (ie "Gasp! She plays video games! She likes comic books!"). Appears again in 2012 where an episode of NXT says that Kaitlyn refers to herself as a girl next door. William Regal on commentary promptly lampshades this with "I wish she lived next door to me!"
  • Heroic BSOD: Suffered one after Daniel Bryan told her that he wished she'd never been born. She then had a match against Natalya, who started to question the fact if the match should take place, since AJ just stood there and did nothing. AJ then beat the living hell out of Natalya, and the ref had to stop the match.
  • Hollywood Nerd: AJ
  • Hope Spot: After AJ's borderline squash against Kaitlyn, Daniel Bryan came out and appeared to be reconsidering. He said he was willing to move Kaitlyn. AJ wasn't pleased.
  • Hot Amazon: Kaitlyn. For that matter, before joining the WWE, she was a fitness model.
  • I Have the High Ground: AJ who has a high flying moveset.
  • The Ladette: This is their gimmick, Kaitlyn more than AJ.
  • Les Yay: The two like to celebrate by jumping into each other's arms and hugging each other.
  • Lovely Angels
  • Love Confession: AJ told Daniel Bryan she loved him. He said he appreciated it.
    • Love Makes You Dumb: AJ towards Daniel Bryan. She has confessed her loved to him, he has yet to respond the same way, other than he appreciate it. He has used her as a mean to hold on to his title. When Michael Cole was interviewing her and started verbally attacking her, he only came out to put a stop to it when his name was brought up.
    • Mad Love: AJ can't seem to give up on Bryan after their breakup.
      • Or not since she's going for CM Pumk.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: How Kaitlyn turned on Vickie Guerrero.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Kaitlyn.
  • Official Couple: AJ and Hornswoggle while they where part of NXT, but they have since broken up. Funnily enough Kaitlyn locked lips with the little leprechaun first (during a kissing contest).
    • AJ and Daniel Bryan was for a few months on Smackdown, but after his loss at Wrestlemania, they broke, and Kaitlyn and Derrick Bateman on NXT
  • Older Than They Look: AJ's 24, but owing in no small part due to her petite frame and ...comparative lack of womanly attributes, she tends to look more often than not like a teenager on screen, especially lined up with most of the males. Hell, even Daniel Bryan absolutely dwarfs her, and he's on the small side of the wrestler spectrum. One has to believe that WWE's playing off this a bit. It's worth mentioning that Daniel Bryan's Beard of Evil keeps getting longer and wilder, making his and AJ's relationship resemble a lovestruck schoolgirl that's fallen head over heels for a full-grown lumberjack.
  • One of Us: Both of them apparently though AJ moreso.
  • Passive Rescue: After a recent match where CM Punk faced Daniel Bryan, AJ 'accompanied' Punk to ringside. ('Accompanied' meaning 'stalked' in this case.) As much as it cloyed Punk to have her out there (and her distraction unintentionally cost Punk the match, to boot), he was probably thankful for it when Kane showed up on a rampage. [1] Kane was carrying a steel chair and quickly broke it in on Daniel Bryan's back before chokeslamming him on top of said chair. He went to turn his attention to Punk, but AJ had already slipped Punk a chair of his own while Kane's back was turned, enabling Punk to beat back Kane and not get chokeslammed.
  • The Pete Best: Kaitlyn was a last minute replacement for Vickie Guerrero's first NXT Rookie Aloisa but she ended up winning the contest.
  • Petite Pride
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Kaitlyn, who is just 5 ft 5 but very strong.
  • Poke the Poodle: Rosa Mendes and Tamina mocked AJ by giving her a box of cheese, calling her a "mousy loser".
  • Promoted Fangirl: AJ, there's even video footage of her waiting in line for tickets to WrestleMania XX and more of her meeting Lita.
  • Proud to Be a Geek
  • Puppy Dog Eyes: AJ. Seeing her sad is just absolutely painful.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: AJ might claim to not look like a supermodel but she looks damn fine whenever she puts on a dress. Kaitlyn to a much more limited extent (she was presented as a clumsy ditz for the most part compared to the sex appeal or general attractiveness of the rest of the NXT divas). Both of them really regardless of dress.
  • Ship Tease: AJ and her pro Primo. Recently with Daniel Bryan. Kaitlyn also with Johnny Curtis. Both of them with Cody Rhodes during a kissing contest.
  • Stalker with a Crush. Towards CM Punk. It hasn't helped that he stated that he sorta digs crazy chicks.
  • Take That: AJ to wannabe bitchy heels Rosa and Tamina - "Lay Cool called, they want their gimmick back"
  • The Bus Came Back: AJ disappeared after NXT was over but resurfaced in May as Natalya's new prodigee.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Twice in an NXT challenge AJ got picked on by Maxine and Kaitlyn and snapped at both of them.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Thank the lord AJ and Kaitlyn got wins against Maxine and Tamina on NXT to keep them from jobber hell.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: AJ is the tomboy, Kaitlyn is the girly-girl. Which is rather ironic, since AJ has a stereotypical girly-girly appearance (slender and trim) while Kaitlyn is more tomboy in appearance (athletic and strong) and demeanor. However, AJ is so quirky and athletic she's probably the only current diva in WWE that could have Kaitlyn be the girly-girl in such a duo.
  • Yandere: AJ had shades of it after Daniel Bryan dumped her and has now slid into it full-tilt as it being the central aspect of her character.
  1. Kane had unwittingly ended up in the middle of Punk and Bryan's feud, and each had attempted - successfully to manipulate Kane into doing the other's dirty work.
