The Bella Twins have been a constant part in women’s wrestling since the PG Era. Their role in the establishment of the Women’s Revolution is often debated, but Nikki Bella strongly believes that she along with Brie Bella do not receive enough credit for starting the Women’s Revolution.
The longest reigning Women’s champion was recently a part of the In This Corner podcast with Brian Campbell where she discussed her role in establishing the Women’s Revolution among several things.
On asked whether The Bellas receive enough credit for their role in the Women’s Revolution, Bella replied:
“Definitely not, “I guess it’s the point where I don’t feel like I need the credit, but it’s more or less been the disrespect where I have been the punching bag and I think that is hard because, as we know, especially WWE they are pros to “perception is reality.” So, however, they perceive someone people tend to believe that where that person is that person, and for some reason my sister and I have been turned into the punching bags, like, oh, put them with this person and let that person talk about The Bellas and it will elevate them, and that is who we have become. We have been that for a very long time, and it gets exhausting and I’m not going to lie it gets very frustrating because for some reason we have been the women that don’t care about wrestling. But I have been here for 12 years; I have broken my neck and have come back. I absolutely love professional wrestling; I have a passion for that.”
