This week’s Superstar Tweet of the Week comes from former Divas Champion and WWE ambassador, Brie Bella.
WWE released a special of WWE 24: Women’s Evolution on Tuesday night immediately following Talking Smack. It featured the evolution of women’s wrestling from the early days, every day in between leading up to what it is today. All the women who are apart of the WWE Women’s Division, whether in NXT or on the main roster, voiced their feelings about the special. Brie’s tweet Tuesday night however hit me the most for several reasons. One being she is semi-retired and is not currently wrestling at this time; the other being she and Nikki played a vital role in creating the Women’s Division and women’s wrestling that we have today.
I won’t lie, I teared up when I read Brie’s tweet. If it weren’t for Brie encouraging Nikki to come join her on WWE’s Diva Search in 2006, the WWE would have never had discovered The Bella Twins. Both women have contributed so much to professional wrestling and if it weren’t for them, #GiveDivasAChance would have never prompted WWE to change the Women’s Division to what it is today. I am incredibly thankful for both Brie and Nikki and will forever been grateful for everything they’ve done and contributed to WWE.
