– Former WWE Divas Champion Brie Bella recently participated in a interview with Belfast Telegraph and discussed a wide variety of wrestling topics, check out the highlights below:
On the role of women in WWE being more than just entertainment:
“There is nothing like a strong, confident woman for young girls to look up to,” said Bella, I am so grateful I have a daughter who in the future can turn on WWE and see these women, and follow them and see that they’re good people, to see them doing all these things for charity, but also to see how confident they are. I think that’s so important, to teach young girls confidence. The fact they can look up to these WWE wrestlers, and be like ‘I’m going to stand up for myself’. We’re so lucky to have this many women in WWE, for young girls to look up to.”

On women in WWE breaking barriers:
“I think it’s incredible,” said Bella. “I just love when you see how the world is becoming more open, and you’re seeing women in WWE especially breaking these barriers. We’re literally witnessing history. It’s open to any country in the world to now be a part of WWE,” she continued. I feel like for women we’re on the way to main event-ing Wrestlemania (a huge annual wrestling event). I feel like we’re on the way to where it won’t even be about the women and the men, but just superstars. I really love that, and I couldn’t be more proud of the women in WWE.”
Brie continues to serves as an ambassador for the company.
