The women of WWE have been in the eye of some controversy following the Ronda Rousey promo on RAW where she insinuated that Nikki Bella and Brie Bella only got success due to their respective relationships with John Cena and Daniel Bryan. This was criticized by some, including by our own Tyler Treese.

A lot of times, the writers of the program get the blame for things by the audience, so it’s always interesting to see a former writer weigh in on topics like this. Former writer Tom Casiello tweeted that he was both overjoyed and disappointed at the current direction of the WWE women’s product. Casiello was previously employed as a creative writer with WWE from 2011 through 2016:

After first getting into a social media battle over who the ‘DNB’ was, Ronda Rousey definitely got a lot of talk surrounding her WWE Evolution match with Nikki Bella after the promo. Time will tell if this is the good kind of controversy or if it’s too much of a regression for the women.
