ESPN reporter Michelle Beadle has to be one of the most outspoken broadcast journalists of her generation.
She gained fame in WWE circles after a confrontation with AJ Lee just over a year ago when she tried to joke around with AJ's husband to be CM Punk. Lee took offense to Beadle's attempts at humor and this led to the former Divas Champion shouting obscenities at the reporter.
End of the road
Beadle is again taking the headlines today after she has decided she will no longer be following WWE because of Triple H's allegiances.

The 39-year-old ESPN reporter was famously banned from this weekend's big boxing match between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather - hyped as potentially the biggest in the sport's history.
This was due to her outspoken feelings toward Mayweather and his alleged history of violence towards women. Indeed, she was banned from the event by Floyd Mayweather himself after he heard about her comments.
So how did her opinion of Mayweather lead to her jumping ship from the WWE bandwaggon? Well, after Triple H publicly backed the undefeated superstar Beadle decided she had had enough, she tweeted the following:
Given that this is something beyond WWE's control, it doesn't seem that Vince McMahon or WWE would feel like they could be effected by these comments, but over the past few years Michelle has become one of the most important faces of ESPN and also someone that is thought of as a role model so perhaps WWE should fear a form of backlash.
Monday Night Raw will of course be back on our screens this week and it's broadcast could well contain a mention of Saturday night's underwhelming fight, either in a promo or through JBL on the commentary desk.
