• Brie Bella Says She Went Into Deep Depression After Injuring RAW Wrestler
During a recent interview with Digital Spy, former WWE Divas Champion Brie Bella talked about going into deep depression after injuring RAW wrestler Liv Morgan last year.
For those who don’t know, Brie kicked Liv in the face during a match and knocked her out. Liv suffered a concussion because of it.
You can watch this incident below:
Below is what Brie Bella had to say about this incident:
“It’s crazy how I’ve been wrestling for 12 years and one of my major mistakes in the ring I get judged so harshly on. We’re not perfect, no one’s perfect, you know how many people have been injured in the ring? But for some reason I was like showcased in such a way of like, this evil person, and ‘look what she’s done’ and I got bullied really bad.
I wanted to run into a cave and you’ll see. I don’t think people have ever seen me break down as bad as they will during the whole Liv situation. I went into deep depression. I didn’t know if I was going to be able to go back to work.
All the horrible things people were saying about me, I felt a thousand times worse than the things they thought of me and I really had to sit down and think to myself, ‘Brie, you’re a mother’ and if Birdie was in this situation would you want her to feel this bad or would you want her to stand up to it and be like, ‘screw you guys’?
I made a mistake and she’s not badly injured and you know what, this is our business, this is what we all signed up for. Everyone’s going to see backstage even how Liv and I were with each other. Out in the WWE ring, we have to play so much, bad guy, good guy, don’t talk to your competitors, but backstage you’ll see that we’re all really close and it affects us.
We never want to go out there and hurt each other, so when it happens it’s emotional. But people are going to hear my side of the story and my voice and how it’s about damn time that trolls stopped going on the internet and bullying everyone.”
