WWE News: Vince McMahon Reportedly Urging Creative Team to Push the Bella Twins

Drake OzSenior Writer IIDecember 8, 2011

There are many things about the WWE that make me scratch my head, like why the company is pushing Twitter so hard, why the creative team won’t turn John Cena heel and why no one seems to care about Drew McIntyre. 

One of my main problems with the WWE, however, is the way the Divas division works—why it features more models than wrestlers, why the matches don’t last more than five minutes, etc. 

And now it appears as if we have another head scratcher, courtesy of the orders of Vince McMahon

From the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via WrestleNewz.com)

Vince McMahon has ordered that The Bella Twins be made a priority, as far as having more TV time and being featured more, not necessarily when it comes to winning matches. 

Vince feels that The Bellas have strong public relations value since they are twins. He lectured the WWE writing team recently about how they’ve blown so many easy storylines with the twins angle. 

I wish it were April 1, because then I would know that McMahon is kidding. 

Seriously, if he wants to know why the creative team has “blown so many easy storylines” with the Bella twins, I can probably give him the answer: The creative team doesn’t want to feature the Bella twins on TV too often because they’re absolutely awful. 

They can’t act, they can’t wrestle, they don’t have a ton of charisma and the whole twin-switching act gets really tiresome after a couple times of seeing them do it. 

Let’s put things into perspective with the Bella twins and recall how they didn’t even know what WWE stood for when they signed with the company. They’re models who happened to turn into Divas, not two women whose dreams were to be professional wrestlers. 

I appreciate all the hard work they’ve put in and the fact that they’ve actually been able to improve, but the thought that Vince wants them featured on TV more often is a little scary. 

The last thing the Divas division needs at the moment is more pointless backstage segments taking away from their already limited action in the ring.
