Shotzi says that some of the comments she's received following Money in the Bank have "hit hard."
The SmackDown wrestler performed in the women's Money in the Bank match on the pay-per-view. On Monday, she posted a statement on Twitter addressing critics of her performance.
"There are 3 things I care about at the end of a match. Is everyone safe? Did everyone have fun? Did the crowd react? Nobody got hurt. We all had a blast and the Vegas crowd was HotHotHot! I felt on top of the world after that match and was so excited to finally have my first hardcore match in over a year. I wouldn't have done anything I didn't practice or thought I couldn't do safely. But I'm not a wrestle robot, I'm human and slips happen especially in a CHAOTIC UNPREDICTABLE ladder match!
"I can take a joke and laugh at myself (One of the first things I said was 'I can't wait to see that spot on botchamania') but comments like "you should be fired" and other terrible things admittedly hit hard. I had to have a few friends wipe the tears off my face and slap some sense into me and remind me WHO THE F I AM! That being said, all my haters can SUCK MY BIG GIANT HAIR MANGOS!"
Alexa Bliss and Natalya both replied to Shotzi's comments.
"I’m proud of you for always keeping it real. Ladder matches are so hard to do. You guys worked your asses off—" Natalya wrote.
"This is why I don’t like Twitter most of the time - ppl are always to bash everything - if people only knew what all goes into what we do - & the chaos of that day haha everyone is safe & we all had fun," wrote Bliss.
