Nikki Bella is one of the most beloved female WWE Superstars in the history of the company, especially by her Bella Army. Her neck is getting better by the day and there is hope for an in-ring return in the form of one last run. Brie Bella is also loved by fans. 

Women’s wrestling, in general, has undergone massive growth and developed a lot of depth over the years, with various pro wrestling companies all over the world embracing how talented women wrestlers can be. Triple H previously stated that WWE has the best women’s division in the world, which led to a lot of backlash.

WWE’s women’s division has certainly come a long way from its earlier days where women were mere eye candy and no one took them seriously as competitors.

While speaking on Wrestling With Freddie, the Bella Twins talked about their huge role in the evolution of WWE’s women’s division. Brie Bella especially had a lot to say about how the former teen heartthrob helped out their WWE careers.

“We do give you [Freddie] a lot of credit because we were down in FCW for so long and they were like, ‘we just don’t know what to do with twins.’ We’re like, ‘seems like it writes itself.’ It was your ideas that you kept pushing that I think it made people in the company see there was something special. The greatest thing was there was no social media and FCW didn’t have television, so we nobody knew Nicole and I. It wasn’t Nikki so much as it was me. They kept saying they had no idea, I had a boyfriend at the time who was like, ‘you gave up everything for wrestling, at what point do you start to give back to the people who were there for you?

You never see your family, I’m here alone.’ I was like, ‘that’s a good point.’ I was the one who pushed it. ‘Let us know. You told us at Diva Search you weren’t looking for two. We begged to tryout again. We drove here, we’re getting paid peanuts, if you have no idea what do with twins, we can go somewhere else.

The Bella Twins were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and many fans will always be grateful for their contributions to the women’s division and that is what matters in the end.
