Monday we passed words Nikki and Brie Bella hung their wrestling boots. In a few messages that aired in the fourth season of their E! reality show Total Bellas the twins called it a career and we offered a well-deserved tip of our cap.
Shortly after the episode, when Nikki said her body could no longer handle a WWE schedule, Bellas announced on Twitter, they started a podcast. The first episode of it fell today (March 27) and … guess who says they could be lured back into the ring?
To be fair, both women explain their decision to step away from the ring and their problems are legitimate. Both feel the sense of age, and especially Nikki says her last race was made under constant health problems after her spinal fusion, and Brie & Daniel Bryan are trying to get another child.
But nothing they say on the podcast sounds so concrete as "in-ring pension".
And their answer to a fan question about WWE Women's Tag titles?
Brie: Nicole and I told everyone, yes, that we are stepping away from the ring ̵1; which is true we are. But we also said that before WWE Women & # 39; s Tag Team titles got in place. And that's the case, guys – for years my sister and I asked for women's Tag Team titles. Begging. We never actually thought it could really be a reality. That it is now, makes it extremely tempting for us to go back and fight for them, because we really are the longest reigning, most authentic team.
Nikki: We were born a roofing team. We stepped into WWE as a roofing team ourselves – if you go back, FC-Dub (Florida Championship Wrestling, then a WWE development area) as a team of teams … generally we are a legitimate, the only real, true blood tag team … And I have to say that I have a fantastic nearly 13 year career with WWE, I will love to win tag titles with you, Brie … If Brie could put baby no 2 on an enchanted team, I would go back into the ring with my sister by my side …
Brie: My pregnancy test said negative this morning.
Nikki: … with Sasha and Bayley, who wins at WrestleMania, I'll take them on. I would love to take them on and try to get these crew titles.
Brie: So we never say, never and yes, again, Brie could get out of retirement and then retire. Third time is the charm, right?
Nikki: Third time is the charm, Brie.
You can argue all day about whether or not you think Bellas were good wrestlers. But with self-promoting skills that would make P.T. Barnum proud, they really chose the right business.
Who is ready for a comeback? And how fast do you think it happens?
