“I’m the most hated person in wrestling” – WWE Hall Of Famer

The so-called internet wrestling ‘smarks’ have a lot of hate for WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella.

However, the hate isn’t so strong on the side of her twin sister, Brie Bella.

Some of these fans hate Nikki because they think she’s not a good wrestler and used her relationship with John Cena to get to the top in the WWE women’s division.

The same can be said about Brie, who’s married to Daniel Bryan / Bryan Danielson, but she doesn’t get half the hate that Nikki does.

Many believe that is because of who Brie is married to. Bryan is considered an ‘internet darling’, so she gets a pass from the internet diehards despite her constant botches during matches. In her last WWE run, she messed up a suicide dive and landed on her head. In the same match, she knocked out Liv Morgan with a kick to the head while delivering ‘YES! Kicks’ to Liv’s chest.

On an edition of The Bellas Podcast, Nikki talked about this hate and doesn’t understand why some fans hate her so much.

Below is what the former WWE Divas Champion said:

“Even when it comes to the wrestling industry, I’m the most hated person online. There was literally an article written about it two weeks ago.

It is true, I’m the most hated person in the wrestling industry, and it’s so mind-blowing because I’m probably one of the nicest.

Beyond that, I am hated for being so misunderstood. If I stick up for the women, I’m hated. If I stick up for myself, I’m hated.

The thing that has always been mind-blowing is, I’ve never claimed to be the best wrestler. For some reason, me wrestling and showing passion and love, they hate me for it. It’s like I’m not allowed to be passionate or have love for it.

In every industry, there’s an MVP, there’s a champ, there’s the best. In ours, you don’t have to be the best wrestler to be the most popular. I think a lot of people didn’t like my popularity. We get dragged for a lot of stuff. Why should my passion and love be taken away or why should I be hated for it?

I love the business so much and I loved being in the ring so much. I never claimed to be the best, and people dragged me as if I’m out there saying, ‘no one can beat me.’

Yes, I am the longest-reigning Divas Champion in history, that’ll never change. It’s not like we were in the Olympics and I got there and won it.

There is so much more that goes into being a WWE Champion, there are so many components that go into it. It’s really crazy because the wrestling industry absolutely hates me online. Not all of them.

Obviously, the Bella Army is so strong. We’re talking about 10% out of 100. I also feel like I’m misunderstood. They read headlines, they don’t listen to me fully.

When we were on IG Live and RAW 30 came up, I was on IG Live for a good 20-30 minutes talking about Barmageddon season finale, and questions came in about RAW 30. That was about 3 minutes of a 20-minute IG Live, but people cut things down and made it as if I went on IG Live to talk about that.

It’s interesting because, it’s mind-blowing to me because I see all the hate, and it’s really hard, because I love this business so much. I broke my neck in this business, and other bones, but I came back, I’ve risked my life, I’ve risked so many things because of how much I love it. It’s hard when you’re so hated for something.

I’m always confused of like, why, what have I ever done? Being successful, literally, that’s it, because I’m successful… I’ve never turned my back on the wrestling industry. The more success I’ve had, I’ve always tried to bring more awareness to women’s wrestling, and empower more women, what can my success do for others?

There are a lot of people that see that, and write articles about that too, which I’m so appreciative of the people that stick up for [Brie] and I, and have written amazing articles about us and showcase that is truly incredible.

That small group, it’s a really distinct demo, and it is mind-blowing. I also think, the people that do hate, they are the ones that are afraid to not go with the flow. They’re afraid that trolls are going to turn on them. There is a bandwagon of Bella hate.”
