Nikki and Brie Bella were extremely successful in their WWE run. They made a lot of headlines with their short appearance at the Women’s Royal Rumble. Even though they are WWE Hall of Famers, the twins don’t feel any different than they did before.
The Bella Twins appeared in an interview with TV Insider. They discussed a lot of things, but most notably they talked about Total Divas. The show was extremely successful in the past, and Nikki Bella believes it still has some potential with the right fans.
It doesn’t get enough credit. I believe it was also a reason why we had more girls showing up. Here were these reality fans that believed in us and our stories inside and outside the ring. They wanted to come to watch it live and grew into fans. It changed the game so much for us. It made people believe in women’s wrestling. I do hope it does come back down the line, being an executive producer. I’ve always had such strong opinions about it.
Nikki Bella expressed that she wants the show to come back once again. She acknowledged that there are many WWE divas that are interesting and amazing. The WWE legend also wants the “right” minds behind it and added that the twins left it because of “bad girls’ club drama.”
I do hope it comes back because we have so many interesting and amazing women….I think we can make more magic happen with Total Divas, but it has to be the right people behind it. We started to go in a direction where it became more to do with bad girls’ club drama. It’s why we walked away. I was like, ‘That’s not what these women are about. That’s not why people want to watch. They want to watch because after they wanted that hour of TV they felt something. They felt belief, empowerment, strength, inspiration.’ I think we can get back to that.”
Brie Bella also discussed how Becky Lynch would be great if the show ever makes a return. Total Divas started off in 2013 and made a 9 season long run. The Bellas made their own rendition of the show, called Total Bellas, which also had a great 6-season-long run.
