The WWE is like the baby of Vince McMahon. He would do anything and everything to keep WWE at the top, even if some wrestlers didn’t like their parts in it. WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella is an example of a wrestler who didn’t initially like her “Twin Act”.

“In WWE, for so long, we’re just the twins. And Vince, in his head, was like, do everything identical. Talk at the same time, dress identical, and in the reality show [Total Bellas], you finally got to see Brie and I as individuals, and I think that’s when people got crazy connected. Because then everyone’s like, ‘I’m Nikki. I’m Brie’.”

“And then we were able to bring that to the ring and then that’s when ‘Brie Mode’ and ‘Fearless Nikki’ were born. And that just took us to a whole another level where we can actually start to compete with the men and be compared to them of like, ‘Wait, women can actually do this’. We can bring in an audience, we can have women show up, buy tickets, sit in the stands, root for us.”

Even though the Bella Twins was Vince’s idea, he has to agree that the audience loved watching the differences between the sisters. Since both wrestlers were practically together for the longevity of their careers, the fans appreciated seeing the new versions of them.

Is Vince McMahon doing the right thing?

As we all know by now, Vince McMahon has the most authority in WWE. So the blame must also fall on his shoulders for releasing wrestlers. A majority of fans are highly disappointed in WWE for releasing talented and fan favorite wrestlers from the company. Wrestlers such as Mark Henry, Christian Cage, Miro, and Cody Rhodes are some of the many examples of wrestlers blowing up in rival companies. Each of the released wrestlers is doing very well for themselves in other promotions.
