WWE Surprised Brie Bella Isn’t More Over As A Babyface, Backstage RAW Note

According to one source, WWE is apparently puzzled as to why Brie Bella is not more over as a babyface right now. The general consensus is that she came off on the “Total Divas” reality show as a super-babyface, unlike her twin-sister Nikki Bella, who at times came off as a heel.

Considering the fact that she came off as such a babyface on the show, WWE reportedly failed to understand why she didn’t receive more sympathy from the fans during the beat down she suffered at the hands of Tamina Snuka and AJ Lee on this past Monday’s edition of WWE RAW.

Obviously, Total Divas represents a small percentage of the fan base that watches RAW, and the demographics are very different, however some in the company fail to make that connection.

Speaking of Bella, as noted previously, current plans call for her to challenge AJ Lee for the WWE Divas Championship at the upcoming WWE Hell In A Cell pay-per-view.

    Brie Bella is BORING.

  • Frank

    B/c that act like heel that doe L loser thing still! The fail to change the look at all up since that changed then to faces! Also other then the fact that ov tv raw and smackdown the ownly good thing face part that have is we no bryan and cean are dating the bellas! other then that they still act like heel! that need change look like that were faces when that made debut in 2007 or 2008!

  • Keith Kaleo Limos

    I thought A.J. was the face and Brie was the heel. I must be cheering for the wrong person.

    • bayarea08

      Why don’t they do an angle where AJ says she’s fucked Daniel Bryan during his first World Title run or back when they were an on-screen couple. Idk something more dramatic than a random beat-down.

  • Masked Mark of Wrestling

    It’s prolly cuz no one cares for Divas right now. It’s prolly cuz even tho D-Bry is hot, they’ve done all they can to kill his heat and killed everyone associated with him. Plus why were The Bellas screaming before D-Bry kicked the door in when Ortan threatened to do something to his girl? Only to walk in after and attack. You would think they would just be like “He’s right behind you!!” Or something like that. Super dumb. It’s prolly cuz she’s super boring. No offense to these Divas but when Paige finally debuts they will all mean nothing and it can finally go back to AJ Lee wrestling singles matches again. If you haven’t checked out Paige you can all her NXT matches for Free on Hulu. And a Wrestling Doc on her Wrestling family on Youtube. That Doc shows how she made it to WWE Dev

      In a way, I do feel like they have kinda killed Daniel Bryan’s momentum… They seemed to have just over milked the whole thing where he is rightfully supposed to be the champ.

    They where heels less than a f*cking month ago with no explanation on why they turned face. Bella’s are also annoying snobby b*tches from what that E! show says.

      I think it said on here before that their face turn was supposed to happen during AJ’s promo a while ago but they weren’t aware about turning face at the time so they kept up their heel characters throughout that promo so I guess that’s why the face turn seemed so random…plus Brie doesn’t actually come across that bad in Total Divas, it’s Nikki who comes across as an extreme snob tbh…=P

  • G.I.R.L.

    Because she isn’t either AJ or Naomi? Maybe??

  • Y2J

    Again, these are the same people that continue to push Ryback, so this doesn’t surprise me at all.

  • captaindaddy72

    Idk maybe because she is not a good actor and has only two facial expressions, and maybe because you can sleep with the most over guy in the company and expect that 2 rub off on her lol

  • Forceton Banfodder

    I fast-forwarded through the bit… probably because Divas.

    • brad

      Yea I must have missed that part to lol I took a nap for 20 minutes and woke up and the Rhodes brothers were wrestling the shield.

  • raven

    it’s very simple why the bellas aren’t (more) over.
    1. they are divas
    2. they can’t wrestle
    3. they can’t talk
    4. they sound like men
    5. everyone knows about them holding back former divas from rejoining wwe
    6. everyone knows who they slept with to get their spot
    7. they are snobby bitches heel/face/total divas whatever..

    • Guest

      You do realize that a large portion of the audience is casual fans who don’t actually care if the wrestlers can wrestle, or talk right? They cheer, or boo whoever Vince tells them too. Maybe it’s because they turned her face literally out of nowhere, and most of the fans are confused what is going on with her?

      • Chuck Taylor

        this makes way to much sense, please dont confuse the simple minds here who expect all of the fans to boo the bella’s because they didnt want freaking Maria rehired. Come on now.

      • raven

        I do realize this yes. I do think that above all else it’s simply because they are divas and the divas are an afterthought.

  • Name

    Please don’t take the belt off of AJ because of a stupid reality show.

  • Derringer Duo

    Man, the WWE is tone deaf. If you don’t understand why people don’t care at all about The Bellas, you don’t understand ANYTHING about what your fans want.


  • Jamie

    Hmm, zero promos, 2 minute matches, limited moveset, rollup finishes…

  • Progressed_Now

    lol simple, fans see through bullshit and unfortunately they read dirtsheets. they know what true biitches the Bellas are in real life.

  • Peter Griffin

    Is WWE serious? .__. hahahahahahahahaha I’m just going to laugh it’s not worth mentioning why The bellas aren’t and NEVER will be over with the fans.

  • yrabadi

    This just in: WWE doesn’t get it. And by it, I mean anything.

  • insomniacreviewer

    Really WWE? really?…

  • Buzzard Follower

    i couldn’t help but laugh at this one a good old hearty mark hamill joker laugh. You can’t be serious wwe you cant

  • essinodub

    I actually think that Brie has been performing well in the ring… I’d like to see her get a little love… I can name a million reasons why she’s not though… her situation could’ve been handled better creatively storyline wise IMO

  • chains82

    one reason is because people love aj lee and brie is feuding with her…another thing is the confusion…didn’t just a week or two ago wwe have brie on a heel team against the funkadactyls a babyface team?

  • Reality

    Another reason is that Aj is awesome and Brie isn’t very good neither in the ring or in acting. She wasn’t very convincing when DB got a beatdown by Orton. So… I don’t know. I’m in an arena, I would cheer for AJ rather than Brie.

  • Tom Shelton

    I Think The Divas Should Get More Time In The Ring.

  • Half Of Me

    The bellas have the charisma of a brick wall….
