Nikki & Brie Bella are leaving the door open for another in-ring run with WWE.
In an interview with Access Hollywood to promote the upcoming season of Total Bellas, Nikki & Brie were asked if they're retired from the ring for good. "See, this is what's hard for Nikki and I. When we left, all of a sudden the WWE Women's Tag titles came and we're like, 'Wait a sec, that's for the Bella Twins.' Like, we've been dying to have Tag titles," Brie said. "And so her and I feel like we have one more run in us and we really want to go for those titles."
Nikki & Brie both announced their retirement from in-ring competition on season four of Total Bellas in 2019. The Bellas appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in June 2019 and Nikki discussed the injury issues that led to her retiring.
Earlier this year, Nikki & Brie both gave birth to children. Nikki and her fiance Artem Chigvintsev welcomed the birth of their first child on July 31. Brie and Daniel Bryan welcomed the birth of their second child on August 1.
Chigvintsev told US Weekly about Nikki potentially returning to the ring: “She’s been having talks about coming back and doing something together with [her twin sister], Brie [Bella.] They both have kids, and I feel like they still have this unclosed chapter with wrestling. I would not be surprised.”
Nikki & Brie were set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame over WrestleMania weekend this April, but the ceremony couldn't happen due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Total Bellas season six will premiere on E! at 9 p.m. Eastern time this Thursday. Nikki & Brie's full interview with Access Hollywood is available to watch below:
