Nikki Bella blames the smarks for no retirement speech

Quote:
I feel like they haven't had me come in and do a retirement speech because - guys, it's crazy. Brie and I have become hated by the 'Smart Marks'," Nikki explained. "I always looked at it like, well, we did a really good job as heels for so long. But it was like the more successful we would get with the reality shows, and the men that we were dating and married to, and all that, we became more and more hated. For people to go against us in the ring and on the mic, it's very easy to create promos with Brie and I, or about us. And I look at Paige, and Bryan, and Edge, and the list goes on of people who got to have that moment [of a retirement speech]."

Nikki began to grow emotional as she reminded listeners of the sacrifices she has made as a performer in WWE. With her career spanning over a decade, Nikki is a two-time*WWE*Divas Champion, with one of those reigns being the longest in WWE history before the Divas Championship was retired.

"It's actually going to make me emotional," Nikki said through tears. "It's going to make me cry because, you know, I love wrestling. I gave thirteen years of my life. I beat my body up. I mean, it was my world. It's so sad sometimes when I see the lack of respect or, like, not the appreciation. 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? I mean, I've risked my life. And you know what? I'm a human being; sometimes we like to be acknowledged or appreciated. And 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 the Thursday before*WrestleMania*and I'm done. That's it... I pray one day, Brie, we will be appreciated by that crowd."

"I don't need to be appreciated by them. And I'll tell you why, they're a small part of the huge WWE Universe," Brie responded.

Brie went on to explain that although Nikki has been forced to retire from the ring, it's possible that she herself may make a return to the squared circle.

"The door is closed for Nicole in wrestling; maybe not for me," Brie said. "I'm not going to confirm anything but maybe or maybe not. [Teaming with*Daniel Bryan*against*Seth Rollins*and Becky Lynch] would be good, but I think too, if I do go back, I would like to do something a little different. Something I've never done before. Obviously with my husband, but he and I talk about certain ideas."

I'm starting to think a fan on Twitter rustled her jimmies for her to just randomly come out and say that.

As for Brie returning she can stay well away thanks.

Re: Nikki Bella blames the smarks for no retirement speech

They both get a raw deal from fans, Nikki in particular. Fans seem to be more accepting on Brie, maybe because of Bryan?

She deserved a retirement speech anyway. If Paige gets one, why not Nikki?

Re: Nikki Bella blames the smarks for no retirement speech

I can't

Re: Nikki Bella blames the smarks for no retirement speech

you were going to get another title feud in 2019 before the injuries and have been one of the most pushed women in WWE history but you are the victim.

No, both of the Bellas were equally crappy.
Paige having a speech was fitting because she is genuinely a fan favourite and not force fed to us just because she was banging Cena or Bryan for a push.

Plus she was a heel, heels don’t usually get a speech... If Lita never got one then you can bet your ass Nikki sure as hell ain’t getting one, not in a million years, lol.

Oh shut the fuck up Nikki, you’re not nearly as big as you or WWE tried to make us think you are. Stick to your low rent budget TV E! bullshit, shut up, and fuck off. “Legend” my fucking ass.

Re: Nikki Bella blames the smarks for no retirement speech

Sorry, but that "smart mark" thing is just a lame excuse. She left as heel and some people dislike her anyway. Also some Cena fans were pissed by the promos with Ronda (sure, he was asked, blabla). Brie and Bryan are heels also. So if she would come out on monday for a retirement speech, people would just boo her.

Ronda broke her hand punching the face that she said broke too easy. [8. April 2019, Becky Lynch]

English was my fourth language at school, so please be gentle. Feel free to send me corrections via PM.

Brie was the most attacked women's wrestler last year not named Charlotte/Ronda for her botches. I'd argue she got it worse then Nikki recently.
