Brie and Nikki Bella are undoubtedly two of the most influential WWE divas in recent history. The twin sisters ushered in the WWE's reality TV era, hosted numerous championships, and are popular even with those who don't see wrestling.
Their relationships and the recent announcement of a double pregnancy have been covered by almost every gossip site. And now it looks like their invaluable contributions to the wrestling industry are recognized.
WrestleVotes reported for the first time that the twins are being considered for the 2020 class of the WWE Hall of Fame. The duo, who were the first couple to only adorn the Muscle & Fitness cover for women, would work with Dave Bautista, another M&F cover model, at this year's ceremony. (Apparently the trick to getting into the hall is to be on our front page – our lines are open, WWE superstars).
WWE has not yet confirmed the announcement, but people are already excited about the opportunity.
"The Hardcore Legend" Mick Foley even tweeted his support for the idea. "Great athletes, excellent attitudes, years of mainstay in the Divas division before the women's revolution – and tireless ambassadors for @WWE long before @TotalDivas paid them general attention," said Mrs. Foley's baby.
The Bellas have become much more than a great wrestling team. They were two of the first divas to appear on the Total Divas reality show, which gave viewers an insight into the lives of wrestlers. In 2016 they got their own spin-off, Total Bellas, which will start their fifth season on April 9th.
And their lives have even (literally) become a federal affair. When Nikki Bella and John Cena became engaged to WrestleMania 33 (they later separated and Nikki is now engaged to the Russian dancer Artem Chigvintsev), Congresswoman Rod Blum from Iowa asked the United States at the time. Linda McMahon, Small Business Secretary, why it took Cena so long to ask.
McMahon, the former president of the WWE, simply said, "You should ask him."
It seems that 2020 will be the Bellas year. Both are expecting children (Nikkis first and Bries second) and are due within two weeks. We can't wait to see what is still on the horizon for the dynamic duo.
