Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer has corroborated our earlier report of members of the WWE women’s locker room being upset with Trish Stratus, as well as Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.
He says that several WWE Divas weren’t happy with the originally planned multi-women’s tag team match being nixed from WrestleMania XXVII, leaving a scant few to participate in skits, and only Lay-Cool competing. This led to heat on Stratus and Polizzi as some girls felt they “took their spots” because unlike them, they’re on the road all year long.
The originally planned multi-women’s tag team match was actually cut due to timing constraints, not due to Stratus and Polizzi’s involvement with the pay-per-view event. Kelly Kelly, however, can attest to being “victimized” by Stratus and Polizzi since she was originally penciled in for the mixed tag team match. She concurred with Nikki Bella stating on Twitter that Snooki learned something from the Jacksonville native for her WrestleMania match, writing, “Heck ya pic tell em!!!”
Stratus appeared on Sirius XM Radio’s Busted Open yesterday and politely criticized John Morrison for his decision making as she indicated that he wasn’t smart. She confirmed online reports that he wasn’t interested in listening to her suggestions for the match, and that when she went to hug him, he gave her the cold shoulder.
Some people within WWE are attributing Morrison’s unprofessional behavior to Melina, since she is his girlfriend and was left off WrestleMania XXVII. The backstage belief is that he either holds Stratus in contempt for taking Melina’s spot on the card, or had to portray himself as such so that she would believe he was mean to her. Melina is one of the women’s wrestlers upset with Stratus and Polizzi for “taking their spots.”
