Nicole and Brianna, formerly known as The Bella Twins, appeared at their first independent wrestling show on Friday in Newburgh, New York for Northeast Wrestling. Appearing as special guests, Nicole and Brianna argued over who was the better man, Luke Robinson or Jerry "The King" Lawler. Robinson appeared and said Nicole had brains and better genetics, which led Lawler to come out and stick up for Brianna. "The King" then suggests that in their main event match, they each have a Bella in their corner.

As the match concluded, Brianna hopped on the ring apron to complain about Robinson's cheating. Robinson then tongue kissed Brianna, resulting in a slap across the face. Nicole then got angry and slapped Robinson, leading to Lawler rolling him up for the pinfall victory. "The King" then received a kiss from Nicole and Brianna as the crowd chanted "Uncle Jerry." He left the ringside area with both Bellas.
