“The Bella Twins are not talented, experienced, or athletically gifted in the world of wrestling. Yet, their fans get offended by honest criticism. I don’t understand how anyone could be a fan of a duo of women getting by without having half the ability of A.J. Lee, Natalya, Naomi, or any other deserving Divas, to display.”
Because claiming that they’re sleeping their way to the top, or “ugly hoebags” as one
asshole person reblogged is not “honest criticism.” It’s slut shaming and/or insulting their looks. And that is generally what most of the confessions are about.
If you don’t find that offensive, you’re a toolbox. Because out here in the real world, shit like that is generally frowned upon.
They work just as hard as the other women, and all the wrestlers on the roster have varying degrees of talent. There are men on the roster far more talented than Cena, Orton, Sheamus, etc, but they aren’t as pushed as the three mentioned. Why? Because the WWE believes that those three men are more marketable. That they can connect with the audience more.
The Bellas are really fucking marketable. They are hot twins. They are also well liked by the company and their coworkers (Nikki is apparently getting no heat from anyone, despite her dating Cena. Which is the total opposite reaction Michelle McCool got when it came to her and Taker), and are actually really solid public speakers (and yes, there is a difference between public speaking and acting, so please don’t start with the “they can’t act” spiel). They are also total sweethearts, and I’ve yet to bump into anyone online or otherwise who’ve met them at meet and greets who didn’t think they were two of the nicest WWE stars they’ve ever met.
