The Bella Twins will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 6 as part of the 2020 class. Yet their active career in the wrestling rings may not be over. Nikki and Brie have not competed in a WWE ring for over two years, with their last appearance in a match in the fall of 2018.
At that time, Nikki Bella took part in the Evolution main event. women that WWE organized at the time) facing off against Raw women's champion Ronda Rousey at the time. Both twins gave birth last August, and obviously, a return to the ring was out of the question during their pregnancies.
But now enough time has passed, so much so that rumors have long since exploded that Brie & Nikki Bella were in preliminary talks to get back into action in WWE. The Bella Twins have also already made it clear that they would like to get back into action to hunt for female tag titles, which did not exist at the time of their previous WWE stint.
The Bella Twins want to become WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions
While discussing their impending entry into the Hall of Fame, Dave Meltzer on 'Wrestling Observer Radio' spoke of potential timing for their return to the ring: "They are coming back too.
Yes, they will be back soon to fight. but they are planning to return, I think it could be in the fall." Meltzer's prediction does not coincide with what Bellas themselves said last November when they predicted "a couple of years" of waiting so that their children can see them struggle.
There is also the issue of Nikki's health. Earlier this month, Nikki said in her podcast that she is not medically licensed to fight due to the condition of her neck and that it will take more than a year to strengthen her cervical muscles sufficiently to allow such a return.
With this remarkable detail in mind, 'Cageside Seats' says The Bella Twins return in the fall of 2022 looks more realistic than the fall of 2021. But there's nothing concrete at this point, so we'll have to just keep your eyes and ears open for more information.
Who could, who knows, arrive during their upcoming speech at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony. As Daniel Bryan alluded to, WWE reintroduced the Women’s Tag Team Championship in February 2019. The Bella Twins often competed in WWE tag team matches between 2007 and 2018.
However, the Women's Tag Team Championship, currently held by Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, did not exist during that period of time. The Bella Twins have been focusing on their lives outside of WWE in recent years. Nikki gave birth to her first child with Artem Chigvintsev, Matteo, in 2020. Brie has two children, Buddy (born in 2020) and Birdie (born in 2017), with Daniel Bryan.
