[[caption-width-right:350:AJ Lee (left) and Kaitlyn (right)]]
The '''[=Chickbusters=]''' were a professional wrestling women's tag team consisting of '''Wrestling/AJLee''' and '''Wrestling/{{Kaitlyn}}''' in Wrestling/{{WWE}}

The duo were previously contestants on the all-women/third season of ''Wrestling/{{WWE NXT}}'' (September 7, 2010 - November 30, 2010), AJ coming in third and Kaitlyn winning the competition. At the start of the season they were initially at odds but after Kaitlyn's HeelFaceTurn, their RealLife friendship started to show on-screen. When AJ joined the main roster on May 27, 2011, the two of them were paired to become an official tag team that same day. They officially broke up on May 13, 2012, with the break-up having to do with [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]]'s ended his romance with AJ, [[DownerEnding and how it ended]], and Bryan considering "other" options (see HopeSpot below).

Kaitlyn was the first of the two to become [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-diva.html WWE Divas Champion]] on the 20 year anniversary of Raw on January 14 2013, when she beat Wrestling/EveTorres for the title. She would later drop the title to her former partner on June 16th of that year.

----
!!!Tropes associated with the Chick Busters include:
* AbortedArc:
** Kaitlyn's little romance with Wrestling/DolphZiggler got dropped when she was moved to the main roster.
** Kaitlyn's heel turn after Vince wasn't happy with the segment and ended up scrapping the storyline altogether.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys:
** Both to heel Wrestling/DolphZiggler. Primo was technically a heel as well to AJ.
* AmazonianBeauty: Kaitlyn. Before joining the WWE, she was a fitness model.
* ArchEnemy:
** The Divas of Doom, Maxine and Wrestling/VickieGuerrero for both of them. Eve for Kaitlyn.
** And now each one for the other. They've gotten in more vicious backstage brawls in the last year than all of the other Divas on the roster put together.
* ArmorPiercingSlap: AJ to Kaitlyn, when the latter told her to get over the fact [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] used her.
* BadassAdorable
* BadassInANiceSuit: AJ during her run as Raw GM.
* BreakTheCutie:
** WWE seemed determined to do this to AJ. Eventually they succeeded, [[GoneHorriblyRight and like candy from a pinata, a whole mountain of crazy poured out.]]
** And then AJ determined to do the same thing to Kaitlyn. It got ugly really quickly.
* BreakupBreakout: Averted; After what appears to be the Chick Busters' [[https://twitter.com/KaitlynWWE/status/201728516692246528 break up,]] and A.J's involvement in high-profile angles with Wrestling/CMPunk, [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]], and Wrestling/{{Kane}}, and being made the General Manager of RAW on the 1000th episode on July 23rd 2012 until October 22nd 2012, but still have remained relevant with her feud with Wrestling/JohnCena and her involvement with Wrestling/DolphZiggler. And Kaitlyn didn't do anything remotely as important for a while, but she then entered a feud over the Divas Championship alongside [[Wrestling/{{LayCool}} Layla]] and Wrestling/EveTorres, which ended in Kaitlyn winning the Divas title at [[MilestoneCelebration Raw's 20th Year Anniversary on]] Janurary 14 2013. AJ won the title that June, and has now had the longest reign in the title's history. Kaitlyn left WWE in 2014.
* ButtMonkey: Both of them were mostly used to make Wrestling/BethPhoenix and [[Wrestling/NatalyaNeidheart Natalya]] look strong.
* BuxomIsBetter: Guess which one won NXT? Now guess which one won more contests/matches? Well, Kaitlyn's combination of wins for both matches and challenges. AJ did have more matches than Kaitlyn, but she won more than lost, whereas Kaitlyn was the opposite (and one of her wins was ''Vickie Guerrero'').
* {{Catfight}}: With each other on the second episode of NXT, Kaitlyn with Vickie Guerrero nearly every other episode. And with each other once they started feuding with each other.
* CanonName: AJ was for a long time only referred to by her first name on WWE TV but fans stilled call her AJ Lee, which she used in FCW. She was then finally referred to as AJ Lee during her wedding to Daniel Bryan. And it stuck in-universe after she became the RAW GM. (Which was [[TwistEnding at the wedding.]])
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: The "Geek Goddess"[=/=]GirlNextDoor parts of her personality have been all but forgotten in favor of her somewhat needy {{Yandere}} tendencies as of late. Unless you follow her on Twitter, in which it's more of Geek than Yandere.
* CoolBigSister[=/=]CoolTeacher: Natalya was this to them before she turned {{Heel}}
* CuteBruiser
* DeadpanSnarker: Kaitlyn flashes this every once in a while.
* DemBones: A.J has them on her ring gear.
* DemotedToExtra: Played straigh with Kaitlyn at first, as she was hardly seen on Smackdown for a while, and was relegated to Wrestling/{{WWENXT}}, were she actually got mic time, storylines and time to wrestle. Then, all storylines for NXT abruptly ended, and for a weeks before the {{retool}}ed version of NXT started, they simply had wrestling a la Superstars. She then reappeared on Smackdown, were she became mixed in the Divas title hunt alongside Layla and Eve, before finally becoming the Divas Champion.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Kaitlyn who apparently was both Homecoming Queen and Class Clown in the same year.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: From Kaitlyn's Facebook page...
-->Kaitlyn: "so now i'm single :("
-->Ryse Ouellet (Maryse): ‎-,-' ; my poor Celeste you need to see me ;)
* FanNickname: "Chick Busters" was originally this as they joked about it on Twitter (naming themselves after the similar tag team The Dude Busters[[note]]Curt Hawkins, Trent Barretta and Caylen Croft[[/note]]) before it eventually became official and acknowledged on TV. AJ's is also "Geek Goddess".
%% * FragileSpeedster: AJ
* GenkiGirl: Both of them, but '''especially'' AJ.
* GirlNextDoor: 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. Wrestling/WilliamRegal on commentary promptly lampshades this with "I wish she lived next door to me!"
* HeelFaceTurn: Kaitlyn on Wrestling/[[WWE NXT}}.
** HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: AJ, after being dumped by Daniel Bryan and having a mental breakdown, it was hard pin point her status, as it would seem she would switch in the same scene depending on her mood. After ''TLC 2012'' she'd settled on {{Heel}}. This was also the cause of their break up; AJ's constant mood swings and Kaitlyn not knowing how to deal with AJ.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: [[https://twitter.com/KaitlynWWE/status/99875840459943937 Duh.]]
* HollywoodNerd: AJ.
* IHaveTheHighGround: AJ who has a high flying moveset.
* TheLadette: This is their gimmick, Kaitlyn more than AJ.
* LovelyAngels
* LoveConfession:
** AJ told Daniel Bryan she loved him. He said he appreciated it.
** She also gave a much lengthier one of these to CM Punk...[[WhamLine which ended with her asking him to marry her.]]
*** LoveMakesYouDumb: AJ towards Daniel Bryan. She confessed her love to him, he never responded in the same way, other than he appreciate it. He has used her as a mean to hold on to his title. When MichaelCole was interviewing her and started verbally attacking her, he only came out to put a stop to it when his name was brought up.
*** LoveMakesYouCrazy: Oh dear god. If she's not the best example in ProfessionalWrestling, she comes damned close to it.
*** MadLove: AJ can't seem to give up on Bryan after their breakup. Then she she set her eyes on CM Punk, as well as Kane, simultaneously at that. [[ReallyGetsAround After that]] Wrestling/JohnCena. [[FaceHeelTurn Now with]] Wrestling/DolphZiggler.
* {{Meganekko}}: AJ has been known to exploit this, especially during her time as GM.
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: How Kaitlyn turned on Vickie Guerrero. And why AJ turned on Cena and sided with Ziggler, because in her mind, [[JohnCena he'd]] been toying with her.
* MusclesAreMeaningful: Kaitlyn.
* OfficialCouple: AJ and Hornswoggle for a while they where part of NXT. AJ and Daniel Bryan was for a few months on Smackdown, but they broke up after his loss at Wrestling/WrestleMania. Kaitlyn and Derrick Bateman during season 5 of Wrestling/{{WWE NXT}} .
* OlderThanTheyLook: AJ's 24, but owing in no small part due to her petite frame and [[PetitePride ...comparative lack of womanly attributes]], she tends to look more often than not like a teenager on screen (when she debuted on NXT, her pro Primo first thought she was 16), 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 BeardOfEvil keeps getting longer and wilder, making his and AJ's relationship resemble [[PrecociousCrush a lovestruck schoolgirl that's fallen head over heels for a full-grown lumberjack.]]
* OneOfUs:
** Both of them, but especially AJ. Apart from initially being billed as a [[NerdsAreSexy "Geek Goddess"]] that loved video games and comic books when she was on NXT, she's established her nerd cred by once dressing up as [[Franchise/MortalKombat Kitana]] for a Divas' Halloween Battle Royale and attempted an Upraise (Kitana's hold in place move...it didn't work). Not only that, but the WWE Superstars have a video game tournament before every Wrestlemania competing in the latest iteration of the company's video game series. ''AJ won the most recent one.''
** You should check out her twitter. It's full of witty gems such as these:
-->''On an unrelated note, I am deliriously tired and have spent my morning googling animal pictures.''
-->''Every time I eat chips whilst standing in between an open fridge door, my dog looks at me with eyes that scream "This is why you're single."''
* PetitePride: AJ.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: Kaitlyn, who is just 5'5" (1.65 meters) tall but very strong.
* PokeThePoodle: Rosa Mendes and Tamina mocked AJ by giving her a box of cheese, calling her a "mousy loser".
* {{Promoted Fan|boy}}girl: AJ. There's even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkR1bzsMho8 video footage]] of her waiting in line for tickets to ''[=WrestleMania XX=]'' and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GV8SFf7XRk]] of her meeting {{Lita}}. Taken [[UpToEleven even further]] when she became the new Raw GM. Something she stated when she was removed from power that this was the only thing in life she wanted in life.
* ProudToBeAGeek
* PuppyDogEyes: AJ. Seeing her sad is just absolutely painful. AJ's puppy dog eyes have even stopped Kane in his tracks.
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Kaitlyn uses the Spear as her finisher.
* ReallyGetsAround: AJ's kayfabe history is starting to make her look like WWE's resident bicycle. In her short time with WWE, she's been involved in romance arcs or ShipTease situations with Primo, Wrestling/CodyRhodes, [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]], Wrestling/CMPunk, Wrestling/{{Kane}} (these last three all ''simultaneously'' at one point), Wrestling/JohnCena ''and'' Wrestling/DolphZiggler.
** [[HoYay Oh, and then there's Kaitlyn herself.]]
* SanitySlippage: AJ's sanity became a more distant memory with each passing week after Daniel Bryan dumped her. Which lead to the Chick Busters breaking up.
* SheCleansUpNicely: 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.
* ShipTease: AJ and her pro Primo and with Daniel Bryan, that later turned into a relationship that went sour later on. Kaitlyn also with Johnny Curtis. Both of them with Wrestling/CodyRhodes during a kissing contest.
* ShoutOut: Kaitlyn's ring attire since Survivor Series 2012 is clearly meant to be a nod to Trish Stratus and her ring gear circa 2006.
* TakeThat: AJ to wannabe bitchy heels Rosa and Tamina - "LayCool called, they [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall want their gimmick back]]"
* TheBusCameBack: AJ disappeared after NXT was over but resurfaced in May of 2011 as Natalya's new ''protégée''.
* TheDogBitesBack: Twice in an NXT challenge AJ got picked on by Maxine and Kaitlyn and snapped at both of them. {{Foreshadowing}} maybe? After repeatedly getting rejected and [[KickTheDog kicked]] by [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] over and over...and ''over'', she finally seems to have snapped. Then, cue a couple months later, were she leaves him at the alter.
** BrickJoke: The first AJ snaps on was Natalya.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Thank the lord AJ and Kaitlyn got wins against Maxine and Wrestling/{{Tamina|Snuka}} on NXT to keep them from jobber hell.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: 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. That is, until Kaitlyn started hanging around with Natalya. The dynamic isn't as dramatic, but it's still there.
* UnnecessaryRoughness: Some of the backstage brawls between Kaitlyn and AJ have been extremely vicious. AJ one threw Kaitlyn headfirst into a ''stainless steel drinking fountain.''
* WeUsedToBeFriends: They broke up as tag team after AJ's sanity started slipping. Kaitlyn even stated that was hard being her friend when A.J. was the way she was.
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle:
** The name of the trope was spoken by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=he5GgMAAXxE AJ herself]], and [[https://twitter.com/WWEAJLee/status/100234939047485440 here's the trope]] on one of her twitter statuses.
