Former Diva Praises WWE’s Anti-Bullying Campaign, Eve Wrongly Labeled Champ
- During Raw Monday, former WWE performer Maria Kanellis praised her former employer’s anti-bullying efforts with “be a STAR.” She tweeted, “I really love everything @wwe does with #BeASTAR.”
A follower of hers deemed WWE’s stance against bullying hypocritical considering that many talents have been subject to blistering ridicule by organization higher-ups, both on-air and off: “How can they advocate non-bullying with all the on and off-camera bullying going on in that company?” The former Diva feels that WWE is making an honest effort to make bullying on their part a thing of the past.
“I think that @WWE is changing for the better! They are moving in a great direction and it’s exciting. #BeASTAR,” she responded.
– WWE.com erroneously labeled Eve as Divas Champion in their main page write-up of Kaitlyn becoming the No. 1 Contender to the title on Raw. The website wrote, “In a No. 1 Contender’s Battle Royal on Raw, Kaitlyn outlasted all of her competitors and eliminated Eve to become the new No. 1 contender to Divas Champion Eve.” Here is a screenshot of the error, which has since been corrected.
Meanwhile, Natalya was not pleased with the match result. She tweeted, “I’m not happy for @KaitlynWWE – she didn’t deserve to win tonight. It was a complete fluke. Everyone, ESP @EveMarieTorres knows this!”
