Maria Kanellis responds to WWE Smackdown promo: “We were Divas for a reason. We had to be.”

This week’s episode of Smackdown Live kicked off with a segment featuring Carmella, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair hyping the Smackdown Women’s Championship match for SummerSlam.

Flair was scripted to say that Carmella is just a Diva living in a women’s era and Carmella fired back by comparing her body, beauty, and charisma to Flair.

WWE Superstar Maria Kanellis, who made her name during the era when women were labeled as “Divas,” took issue with the word being used to diminish women from the previous era.

Kanellis wrote, “Real Diva. Be careful disparaging the women that fought for what you are getting. Experience is more of a bitch then, entitlement ever will be. We were Divas for a reason. We had to be. We all matter in the marathon called the Evolution of Women Superstars. And it’s not over. I see you. I’m with you. We were in the trenches together in full makeup, dresses and heels everyday, every show. Still fighting with babies, careers, husbands, and a stigma. Is it better to fight for the system or the spot? Both. Love you. Together we push the system forward, apart we forget our past. Those that forget their past repeat it. #evolution @wwe #justwork #unscriptedreality #momlife”
