Nikki Bella recently spoke with Sky Sports about her career. Here are the highlights.
On dressing up like John Cena for Halloween:
“It was actually John’s idea! We did collaborate but he brilliantly came up with it. We were going to do full entrances in a ring and stuff but I had just had dental surgery so I said’ I can’t go in the ring’. He then came up with the amazing idea to do it at the house.”
On Total Bellas:
“To film with our family is awesome – you have to hang out with each other and I love that because I hate being alone. There were tough moments but I had a blast. I think both shows have given an intimate look into our lives and relationships and shown that we are normal people – for example, you have seen how depressed Daniel Bryan became [as he dealt with injuries and retirement]. People also get to see Brie and I’s passion for wrestling. People have realised we are here for wrestling, not anything else.”
On Daniel Bryan being the SmackDown Live GM:
“He is a good General Manager – but I have to tell him: ‘Look at the opportunities the women on Raw are getting [such as Hell in a Cell]! Seriously, he is doing an amazing job – his presence and the way the crowd reacts to him takes our show to a whole new level.”
