Sono passati quattro anni da quando le ex dive della WWE Nikki e Brie Bella si sono ritirate dalle carriere di wrestling di alto profilo. Settimane dopo che Brie ha annunciato la sua partenza, Nikki ha seguito l’esempio in un episodio di marzo 2019 del suo reality show, “Total Bellas”, per Us Weekly. “Mi sento come se fossi troppo vecchio per quel viaggio”, ha spiegato l’allora 35enne. “Mi sono reso conto… ‘Perché lo sto facendo ancora?’ Non mi sento bene”. Facendo i complimenti alle sue compagne dive, Bella ha detto: “Sono davvero pronta ad appendere la maglia al chiodo. Ad esempio, posso dirlo completamente, [I’m done].”
Nikki and Brie Bella could get back in the ring in next two years
In a January 26 episode of "Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen," former WWE stars Nikki and Brie Bella walked back previous comments that they have left pro-wrestling for good. "I've always felt in me that I have one more last run ... which I'd love to do with her," Nikki said, referencing Brie. Brie responded from behind the "WWHL" bar, "Tag team champs?" Nikki added that it would be an empowering experience for her son, Matteo Chigvintsev, to "be ringside and know and appreciate what Mommy's doing" when he is old enough of age. Welcoming Matteo in July 2020 with husband Artem Chigvintsev, per Us Weekly, Nikki quipped on "WWHL," that "hopefully, that's like in a year or two... and I still look good. We'll be the MILF team, right Breezy?"
This wasn't the first time the 39-year-old twins referred to one another as a "tag team." Nikki affectionately used that term in an August 2020 tweet upon Brie giving birth to her son, Buddy Bryan, within 24 hours of Matteo's birth. "I can't believe Brie & I had boys less than 24 hours apart! Honestly, only us!," the new mom wrote at the time, adding jokingly, "I beat her. As you can imagine, everyone said it was my baby['s] and [my] competitive side that kicked in!"
