In a conversation with Just Alyx on his YouTube channel, Maria Kanellis-Bennett talked about social media and the impact they have. Social media represent a big problem for today's 'famous' personalities. “I’ve unintentionally taken a little break from a lot of social media stuff because, yeah, it does.
It takes the fun out of wrestling. It’s like, ‘Just give me a minute!’. We’re gonna figure it out. Just give me a minute, you know? Or you’ll see somebody in the ring and they’ll stumble or maybe they slip off the top rope or something will happen in the match.
That was just one moment. What about the rest of the match? What about how they recover? What about every other move that wasn’t considered a [botch]?"- Kanellis-Bennett said, as quoted by pwmania.com
Maria Kanellis-Bennett believes that social media spoils the whole impression, given that today anyone can criticize wrestlers.
Such things represent a big problem, and some do not know how to deal with it. It is obvious that something will have to be done about it. "If we remember to still have fun and not get in our own way of criticizing everything, that’s when we can actually enjoy ourselves.
But when we get on social media and say, ‘I don’t like this and I don’t like that!’. It takes the fun out of things. Like when [Kenny Omega and] the Young Bucks came back [at Full Gear] and you’re watching that.
It’s a fantastic match. Just let yourself enjoy it! I don’t want to hear, ‘oh well back in the 80s…’ OKAY!?? I’ll watch a match from the 80s and enjoy that too! Sometimes we just need to allow ourselves to have fun.
Let’s just have fun while we watch wrestling”. Wrestlers are especially people who are often criticized by many.
