Backstage Tag Title News, WWE Officials Puzzled Over Brie, More

– Tickets for the WWE Hell In a Cell pay-per-view in Miami are not selling at near a sellout pace.

– WWE officials are disappointed and puzzled that Brie Bella isn’t getting over more as a babyface. They couldn’t understand why there wasn’t more sympathy for Brie when Tamina Snuka was beating her up this past week.

– As noted, Vince McMahon made the decision for Cody Rhodes and Goldust to win the WWE Tag Team Titles from Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns on Monday’s RAW, instead of Hell In a Cell. Apparently Vince wasn’t happy that only heels had titles.

    People are not stupid , they know that Brie suck in ring skills , this is why they cheer for AJ Lee because she’s best women right know in any aspect .

      That and because Brie has zero personality.

      I’m just being objective here, but I think the Brie Bella that returned to WWE is a better wrestler than the one that left. She STILL can’t lace A.J.’s Chuck Taylors, but she’s got a nice move or two in her arsenal that she didn’t have last year. She did this counter transition into a single-leg Boston Crab during her last match with AJ that I found myself saying, “Damn, that wasn’t bad.” She doesn’t have the long background or natural talent of A.J. or Natalya, but she’s trying, and that’s to be commended. At any rate, I think she’s improving faster than Nikki, and considering who the sisters are dating respectively, that shouldn’t be any surprise to anyone. But she IS in a feud with the most popular Diva on the main roster, so it’s sort of a no-win situation. (The one thing being ignored here is that AJ’s so well-liked that it’s hard for her to get over as a heel at the moment – hence the addition of Tamina Snuka as a heavy to do AJ’s dirty work.)

      But Brie’s an awful actress. She didn’t do a very good job of emotionally selling Randy Orton’s attack on Daniel Bryan last week – contrast that with Bryan’s reaction to Brie getting beaten up by Tamina. And, whether true or not, I think there’s a prevailing feeling that Brie’s sudden bump in visibility is more due to Daniel Bryan’s own status than her own merits.

    Brie Bella is BORING.

  • Trey Doss

    d-bry should be teacher her how to wrestle um in the ring that is

    • xXwindsofchangeXx

      So you mean D-Bry wins the WWE Title and he and Brie re-enact Edge and Lita’s ‘celebration’ from a few years back? 😉

      • Trey Doss

        lol no i was saying he should actually teach her how to wrestle and not when their ALONE

        • xXwindsofchangeXx

          I know… but the joke was there, just begging to be made. >.>

          And, for what it’s worth, I think she has improved as a wrestler in her second run. I think most of the IWC will probably refuse to acknowledge that, as first impressions are lasting ones, but I think her last couple of singles matches, she’s showed some improvement. Instead of an F she’s more like a D- …which isn’t saying much, but maybe with another year or two of really working at it she can be average… because, like it or not, she and her sister will now probably be around for a while.

          • Trey Doss

            it’s like the iwc says they want let wwe tell them who to like or not like but not many people know this but jillian hall was actually very good and also the only female competior ik to have used a 450 splash

  • Shell

    The only way they can make Brie interesting is by making her improve in-ring, on the mic, and change up her character. Because right now, she’s boring as hell.

  • JH

    Brie probably can’t get over because 1. Fans haven’t forgotten their last run, and 2. They come across horribly, especially Nikki on Total Divas.

    Not sure how healthy she is for a potential match but if Nikki and Brie broke up, that would probably get Brie over as far as she can get.

    • ShowOff76

      And people love AJ not Brie, she would have a reaction as a heel against AJ not as face

  • Bite Me You Loser

    HBK wrote in his book that Vince McMahon hates having all heels holding titles

  • Jacob’s Verbal Fist

    “Well, gee-wiz, Vince. We TOLD the fans that she is a good girl now, we have no idea why they aren’t cheering her.” Umm….maybe its because the Bellas have been bitchy heels for all the years they have been with the company, and then iut of nowhere they’re smiling and ‘acting’ nice? Or the fact that they are horrible actresses and don’t know how to convince the fans of ANYTHING? Perhaps the fans aren’t the stupid idiots you want them to be?

    • jcice13

      that’s a bad analogy because look at how many people have turned on the spur of the moment and they were accepted, but I agree 100% about her being a bad actress and non convincing, you’re spot on there..but the turn aspect?? no

      • Jacob’s Verbal Fist

        The point I’m making is that there WAS no turn. One week they were heels, the next they were babyfaces. No explination, no reason for it. You can’t just have a heel come out smiling and suddenly they’re a babyface. There has to be a reason for the turn. Sure AJ blasted them in a promo, but she blasted EVERYONE. Is every diva besides AJ and Tamina a babyface now? A little proper storytelling would be nice.

        • jcice13

          well now you’re just asking for wayyy too much, a story line that makes sense???

  • Steven

    We’re not over on Brie Bella because that’s not “best for fans”

  • Z….

    lol I live in Miami and had no idea that sh1t was here. I wouldnt go to the event, even for free

  • Justin Irvine

    They have not built up any diva’s built up since Trish, Mickie James, Lita, victoria and others….
