She is a popular ESPN presenter and, as a big WWE fan, has often been seen in the crowd of a number of WWE events but it may be a while until Michelle Beadle shows support for the company again.

Despite being a popular WWE follower, Beadle recently hit out at none other than Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events & Creative for WWE, Triple H, following comments he made regarding Floyd Mayweather.

Old friends

As many will be aware, The Game's connection with Mayweather came about when 'Money' was pitted against Big Show in a match at WrestleMania XXIV seven years ago.

In addition, prior to Mayweather's hugely anticipated fight against Manny Pacquaio last weekend, part of the WWE Network's programming included a half-hour special about the Mayweather vs Big Show match.

This undoubtedly showed the strong link between WWE, or more specificallyTriple H, and Floyd Mayweather, with the Authority member tweeting his congratulations and branding Mayweather as 'masterful' which clearly made Michelle Beadle's anger only develop further.

Personal opinion

Beadle's problem with Mayweather and now consequently, Triple H, came about regarding a number of domestic violence convictions relating to the boxer.

Beadle revealed that as she became oustpoken on this matter, her press credentials for the long-awaited fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao were pulled just days before alongside CNN sportscaster Rachel Nichol's.

Despite the credentials since being reinstated, Beadle clearly stood by her negativity of Mayweather which she explained as she produced a 1,200-word post on Tuesday.

In the post, Beadle made it clear that she was merely using her own voice and seemed somewhat disappointed in the ongoing display of praise Triple H had for Mayweather, given WWE's current strive for equality and encouragement of an anti-bullying campaign.

Although Beadle explained that she 'was' a fan of WWE and a big one at that, it is a great shame that she feels she has somewhat lost the support she once had for the company.

Having interacted with so many WWE superstars as well, most recently by interviewing Brock Lesnar as he revealed his decision to continue with professional wrestling, this incident is also a bad reflection on the company, too.

Ultimately, Beadle's beliefs are just that - her own. She is entitled to her own opinion but given Triple H's relationship with Mayweather, he too is entitled to support his friend when he wins a match in the sport he trains in.
