Nikki Bella goes off about Triple H and others coining ‘Diva’ as a bad word

The term ‘Diva’ seems to be a derogatory term in WWE now and was called out by Ronda Rousey in her savage promo on Raw a few weeks ago.

She may be alone but Nikki Bella is still championing the term in the face of the Women’s revolution, and had some interesting things to say on the In This Corner podcast recently:

“I think that’s what hard for the women of that era now because Triple H and that group decided to say it was a bad word. It’s like wait what do you mean? You guys for years taught us to make this an amazing word and that’s what we did. We put our blood, sweat and tears into this. And I saw the work that went into that.”

“It was beautiful. I got to be a part of that bride you said when people wanted to see more of us and that was beautiful. Then when it gets taken away from the Diva era, that hurts me. That’s why I’m back. You think Diva is a bad word? Then I’m going to kick your ass and show you Diva isn’t a bad word.”

She has some points, but do you guys agree?

    The term “diva” is a derogatory term, therefore it IS a bad word, in perspective. Nicki Bella is a tool and a “smark” (what ever that term means, I see it thrown around a lot).

  • Kristopher Robinson

    There were very few good “divas”, in her “era”.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Nobody cares what she thinks, the Bellas are a stain on the wrestling industry

  • Urza

    The negative “Triple H and that group” decided on was the era of WWE where the Women’s Championship was retired with Trish and the only title for the Women was the Divas championship… a title fans and supposedly women in the locker room didn’t like. A ittle that was defended in Nikki’s 2 minute matches. They’re not criticizing the women or the effect, they’re criticizing the attitude and treatment of the workers during that era.

    Being a Diva is inherently a negative thing. Its in the definition of the word.

    Only points she has are her nipples.

    Its a work comment. Nothing more, nothing less.
