Nikki Bella and Ronda Rousey's build to their match at Evolution later this weekend has been rather personal. Especially from Rousey's end. In fact, a few weeks ago on Raw, Rousey blasted Bella by saying the only door she only kicked down was the one to "John Cena's bedroom."
The line received mixed reviews from fans and viewers. Recently, Bella spoke to The New York Post to promote her match with Rousey. During their conversation, Bella was asked about Rousey's line and her response to it:
"I've grown thick-skinned to it. I just can't wait for the day it can stop and not every promo towards me brings up my ex and I think it will [stop]. I think there will come a day for that, but maybe there won't, but I do hope so."
Rousey's comments did strike a nerve with Bella, however, as fans don't really understand how Cena actually impacted her career:
"I guess where it doesn't make me angry or feel bad about myself is I know the hard work that I've done to get where I'm at. I know the stuff that … John didn't do what everyone said.
"He was my biggest supporter. He gave me amazing advice. I'd pick his brain all the time, and that's what he did for my career, [like] everyone who has that special person in their life."
