After WWE Raw 30, the Bella Twins made headlines by criticizing WWE for failing to demonstrate “anything from the women’s evolution.” Nikki claimed it’s “because Sasha Banks is in it, and we can’t. Mercedes is too over, and we can’t say her name.” In the opening video package, Mercedes Mone was shown.
Madusa was the only female WWE Legend to appear on the show. The WWE Hall of Famers were first promoted for the show, but they were removed from ads a week or so ago. On Instagram Live, Nikki discussed their absence from the broadcast.
We were hoping, I think it was weeks ago, we were talking about going to Raw. They said they had nothing for us. So, we were booked on media on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and then there was possibly, maybe, an idea. Our whole team, including WWE and everyone else, had booked us for Monday, being in New York. Whatever you see of stuff, all of a sudden, stories change. That’s to clean up and throw it on people, nope. We already had all these commitments per the company we work for and everyone else. So, I know people like to throw it on people, but I’m not going to let that happenNikki Bella
Nikki Bella commended the fans for standing up for the ladies through their social media posts when they called out WWE for not booking enough female talent for the night.
