The Bella Twins used their “Twin Magic” to trick plenty of opponents during their time in the ring. Apparently, Hulk Hogan still has problems keeping them straight.
While speaking with E! News, Hulk Hogan revealed that he was blown away by how Brie and Nikki were able to get the baby weight off after their dual pregnancies. He jokes that Total Bellas is “nine months behind reality,” so it was like fast forwarding things for him.
“I know those shows are filmed nine months or 10 months ahead of time,” Hulk Hogan said before he had to admit a rather embarrassing moment that happened backstage. He apparently had a conversation with Brie while thinking that she was Nikki.
“I also have been able to tell Brie and Nikki apart. It’s really easy. I’m sitting there talking to Brie asking about, you know, being a first-time mom with her son and she stopped me, and she goes, ‘Terry, you’re talking to Brie. I’m not Nikki.'”
Hulk Hogan also told the Bella Twins how cool it was to see them move out of the pro wrestling business and make a name for themselves. It takes a lot of planning and brand building, but the Bella Twins are getting it done.
Now if Nikki and Brie Bella can just help Hulk Hogan tell the difference between the two it would be a much less awkward situation.
