Bella Sisters Leave Wrestling and Change Names
Nikki admitted on the Tuesday episode of “The Nikki & Brie Show” that dropping the Bella Twins’ identities was a difficult decision that had been years in the making, but that the sisters felt it was time to move on to focus on a “new chapter” as mothers, businesswomen, television and podcast hosts, and producers. Later this year, she mentioned, they’ll be turning 40. (their birthday is Nov. 21).
We all knew going into this next chapter when our WWE contract was up for renewal,” Nikki stated. In addition, she said, “I have learned so much in and out of that ring, I have gone all over the globe, I have great fans,” adding that the Bella Twins “are very appreciative” for their time with WWE and their Bella Twins identity.
As she prepared to move on from her time as Brie Bella, Brie said, “I am really happy to finish that chapter on Brie Bella and set that book to the side and see what Brie Garcia is going to accomplish next.”
Last week, “Twin Love,” a dating competition series hosted by Brie and Nikki, was officially announced by Amazon Studios. This summer, the ITV Entertainment series will debut on Prime Video and Amazon Freevee in the United States and the United Kingdom, respectively. The show’s official synopsis reads, “‘Twin Love’ is a social dating experiment that explores the love lives of identical twins. To create this captivating and original love story, ten sets of twins will be separated and placed in two houses with “identical” casts.
“Starting out with a little of deceit, the two identical twins would exchange places during Brie’s matches to ensure they picked up the victory,” the WWE website says of the Bella Twins’ career. The sisters were already formidable rivals when their ruse was uncovered.
In April of 2011, Brie became the first woman to win the WWE Divas Title. After that, Nikki won the Divas title for herself and went on to hold the record for the longest reigning Divas Champion in WWE history.
In 2017, Nikki was a part of the 25th season of “Dancing With the Stars” on ABC. The two became reality program stars, first on E”Total !’s Divas” and later in their own spinoff, “Total Bellas,” which aired from 2016 to 2018.
WME represents both Nikki and Brie Garcia. In 2021, SiriusXM’s Stitcher signed a deal with the women who would become known as “The Bellas” for their podcast about the WWE Hall of Fame. The show is produced by Brie and Nikki Garcia with help from Stitcher.
Additionally, after quitting the WWE last year in the wake of sexual misconduct claims, Vince McMahon returned to the company earlier this year and has been actively seeking a buyer.
