Nikki Bella on WWE women wrestlers; Why aren’t we being appreciated?

Nikki and Brie Bella were guests on The Tamron Hall Show where they promoted "Nikki Says I Do". One of the topics was the status of female wrestlers. Nikki Bella is not satisfied with the treatment of female wrestlers and believes that they deserve more attention and opportunity.

“So when you have a 3-hour show and it’s male-dominated and women aren’t being honored pretty much at all, you just sit back and you’re like why aren’t we being appreciated? Why don’t you even have a video package showcasing what these incredible women have done? It made me upset for all of the women because I know that feeling of walking out to the ring where you walk out and put your body on the line, you give it your all just to entertain your fans and the TV viewers.

You just come back and you want to feel appreciated for that. Some of us have had career-ending injuries. We shouldn’t go away. I feel if a wrestler leaves the company, or they are no longer there, it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be remembered.

I wish and I hope that maybe that will be more in the future and we still have a way to go, that women will be appreciated for what they do…”- he said as quoted by pwmania.com

Brie Bella and his view

Brie is happy considering how much some wrestlers have achieved despite various obstacles.

“What the women are doing today at WWE is amazing. The present-day women wrestlers are doing incredible things but it took so many women from the past to pave that road and it’s okay to say thank you and recognize that.

The Bella Twins don’t have to be at Raw 30. It’s all the other women and we can give you a whole long list, that should have been there”.
