• Nikki Bella Reacts To Lack Of Respect & Appreciation From Fans
During a recent edition of The Bellas Podcast, former WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella talked about her retirement from Wrestling and lack of respect from fans.
Below is what Nikki said:
“I love wrestling. I gave 13 years of my life. I beat my body up, I mean it was my world. And it’s so sad sometimes when I see the lack of respect or not the appreciation and you know how badly I wish I could go out there and wrestle again and do it for the fans and do it for us? Like, I’ve risked my life.
I will never get — you know what? I’m a human being and sometimes we like to be acknowledged or appreciated. The fact that I gave so much and I will never get to stand in that ring and have the ‘Thank You Nikki’ chant or even give my last final words. I found out days before WrestleMania and I’m done — that’s it.
Then people blame me like ‘Oh look at her do all those things, she doesn’t care’ — I do care, but my life has to go on. I have to go look at all those open doors and run right through them like Wonder Woman and take them on and I pray one day, Brie that we will be appreciated by that crowd.”
