Top female WWE star vents anger at ‘video game nerds’ over low 2K23 rating

One of WWE's top female stars has vented her anger at being given a low rating for the upcoming WWE 2K23 video game.

WWE's latest instalment of it highly successful game is due to come out next month (March 17).

And much like with footballers ratings in the FIFA franchise becoming a big deal, superstar ratings in the WWE 2K games is now proving to be more important than ever.

However, for Carmella, a former multi-time women's champion and Money in the Bank ladder match winner, the rating she has been given has left a very bitter taste in her mouth.

The second-generation talent, whose real name is Leah Van Dale, was given a 79 rating – exactly the same rating as she was given in last year's version of the game.

And this did not go down well with her or her fans.

One wrote: "Honestly, Carmella should be rated around 84-85 with how well WWE keeps booking her."

And a second added: "These ratings are all over the place . . . they couldn't just give her the full 80?"

Writing a lengthy notes message, which she posted on Twitter and Instagram, Carmella said: "After everything I went through a few months back, it feels meaningless and irrelevant to be upset over a trivial number some video game nerds assigned to me.

"My accomplishments, my resume and my talent should speak for themselves.

"I choose to be excited that I’m even included in a video game and I’m honoured to be in 2k23.

"In 2023 I’m no longer fighting to convince people to see my worth.

"I know what I bring to the table and a sincere thank you to all of you who see it too. I love the WWE Universe so much!!”

Carmella recently opened up about suffering an ectopic pregnancy, which saw her take some time away from the ring.

Her fans came out in support of her, including husband and WWE commentator Corey Graves.
