3 hours ago

It's not the only tweet where they really hammer home that this was written by another woman. What the gently caress? Katie Raymond should get some frigging respect for being a woman in a man's world x2. Not some sort of "we can't be bothered to use your last name because you betrayed the sister hood" bollocks.

Oh and she's been writing for the site since 2007.

The Bellas mentioned Sara Del Rey, so if this is all a kayfabe bitchfit, then I hope the WWE brings in SDR.

Because Mickey and Melina both did poo poo to get themselves fired, and Gail Kim just left on her own.

She also threw a justified fit about how she wasn't allowed to pursue a music career while also doing her WWE career but it doesn't make up for the poo poo she was deservedly blamed for.

Lol that was entirely justified. Why would WWE want one of it's commodities to publicly embarrass themselves by releasing some of the worst musical garbage of all time? I can totally see why WWE blocked the move.

She also had a brilliant idea of marketing the divas to little girls for things like WWE Bratz dolls. They told her something like girls don't buy WWE stuff, ignoring that the reason they don't is they aren't marketing to them.

Up until, I want to say it was '98 (maybe '97), Vince was open to Savage coming back in some sort of role. Dave mentioned this on the board when Randy died.

Look at how quickly the shine falls off people that leave WWE:
-Matt Hardy, completely gone.
-Hulk Hogan, doing rent-a-center commercials and scamming people.
-Flair, scamming people.
-Angle, selling food and trying to convince people he's olympic material.
-Mickie James, had to have donations to buy studio time for next album.
