Well first I’ll start with Chris Jericho; I think that it was towards the tweet that he tweeted and then deleted from his twitter when people started to call him out on it. I think it said something along the lines of the following.
“Hey @BillDeMott is a good friend & great trainer. If you can’t handle it then quit. My training at #HartBrothers camp was 10,000 times worse!”
I don’t get why that is something that would make anyone lose respect for Chris Jericho, then again I sort of get it. The thing is wrestling fans as a whole are always turning on their favorite wrestlers of years because they make one problematic mistake. This shouldn’t change anything about “respect” it wasn’t like he was like other people’s problematic faves who are pretty much racist trash; but that’s something else for another day.
Then the whole Nikki Bella thing was her talking about her being one of the people behind that really quick wrestling match that led to the #givedivasachance trend. She said this in a radio interview:
“What’s funny about that is we were giving about three minutes. Three to four minutes. And we - us four girls who were in the match - we put our heads together and said look; we can either give them a two minute match, or we can give them nothing and get Brie and I so much heat and tell a great story … We’re not gonna give people three minutes of BS, and it ended up being a big chance. It ended up turning into #givedivasachance trending worldwide for two days. I mean, we could’ve gone out there, done a few moves and called it a day, but we were like, ‘How do we tell a great story?’ and at the end of the day, that’s what we did. Brie and I got good heat at the end of it, we got trended for two days straight, and it was like, 'Whoa. We’re storytelling now.’ And that’s what puts the Divas on the next level. Instead of just going out there and doing moves, we story tell. 'Cause that’s what the boys do, and that’s what we need to do.”
So Nikki Bella pretty much said that her and three other Divas all got together and made the decision to have this match only last two minutes yet because her name is Nikki Bella people automatically jumped all over her like it was her fault. This is a huge thing in this fandom; people turning on their favorites over the simplest little things and quite honestly it needs to stop because it’s getting out of hand.
