​Brie Bella Says She’s Wrestled Her Last Match “But Not Forever”, Discusses WrestleMania

During a recent interview with WWE.com, Brie Bella discussed her match at WrestleMania 32, whether she’s retired or not and more. Here are some highlights:

On leaving WWE: “Yes. WrestleMania 32 was my last match. I wouldn’t say my last match forever, just my last match that you’ll see in a while. I am here at home because Daniel Bryan and I want to start a family soon. Or I shouldn’t say soon — we want to start it now! We’re going to start having babies, so I have to put my career on hold. It doesn’t mean that I’m going to be gone. I’m going to be an ambassador for WWE. But I’m going to try motherhood.”

On her departure not being a retirement, but a “break”: “Exactly. The hardest part is that it takes a while to have a baby. So, I hate saying retirement because after I have kids, I would love to make a comeback into the ring. I feel like I could bring a whole army with me, like Trish Stratus, who’s a mother. Michelle McCool, who’s a mother. Beth Phoenix, who’s a mom. It’s a good bunch of us who could come back and have one hell of a career. I just don’t know the timing of it. I don’t know if it will be a year and a half, two years or three years. So, it feels like a retirement. At the same time, I’m just not going to close that door.”

On the Women’s Championship Match: “Oh, my gosh. It was crazy. It’s so hard to explain because it was such an overwhelming feeling. I couldn’t stop smiling. I was just so proud of the three girls in the match. I felt like this is probably what women felt like the day it was announced that women can vote, or the day that women started in business and started feeling equal to men, owning and running companies. For me, I just felt like “Whoa, this is it! This is no longer about men and women. This is about all of us being Superstars.” It’s a very surreal feeling, and I just can’t believe that I was actually there to witness it and be a part of it.”


On if she’ll miss the term ‘Diva’: “No! Absolutely not. Granted, of course, I have so many memories being a Diva. I guess it will always hold a special part of me. We always called ourselves Divas. I came in through Diva Search. I was a Divas Champion. I always felt like it had this negative feeling to it because a Diva is so much more high maintenance, and that’s the last thing we women wrestlers are. I’m really happy to see it go, just as I was really sad when I saw the original Women’s Championship go away. It’s amazing to just finally have it. So, yeah, I definitely won’t miss it.”
