During a momentous Wrestlemania 33John Cena proposed to Nikki Bella after four years of being together. The segment was one of the biggest highlights of the night, and came right after their win against The Miz and Maryse.

Last night Nikki celebrated her victory and she seems to be all smiles:

Unfortunately for Bella, her time with WWE is coming to a short halt as she’ll be taking time off to heal from an injury.

The longest reigning Divas champion took to her Twitter to say the following:

“This isn’t goodbye, just need time to heal. When the day is right I will be back and hopefully then…. BRIE MODE will be ACTIVATED!… Can’t wait for the day I can lace up my kicks throw on my jersey put on my SnapBack & come back home. Until then..Stay Fearless Bella Army!”

The tweets can be seen below:

Despite being injured, Bella will still remain very active. On top of healing her neck, Nikki will be serving as an Executive Producer for ‘Total Divas’ as well as continuing to be the star and Executive Producer of ‘Total Bellas’ (alongside her twin sister Brie Bella).

Prior to this news, Nikki has earned the (now retired) Divas championship twice, wrestled at multiple Wrestlemania pay-per-views (whilst winning her first match last Sunday), was the first WWE Superstar (alongside Brie) to win a Teen Choice Award, starred in ‘Total Divas’ as well as its spinoff ‘Total Bellas’, amongst many more accomplishments.

If Nikki were to call it quits for good, there’s no doubt that she’ll be appearing in the Hall of Fame alongside her sister, but we look forward to seeing her return and wish her all the luck in the world as he heals.

Although we will miss the former 2x Divas champion, we’ll be able to see her this Wednesday at Total Divas will return on the E! Network for the second half of season six!

What do you think of this news? Will you miss Nikki? How will this impact SmackDown Live’s women’s division? Let us know your views in the comments below!

    Omg, well at least when she comes back she’ll probably be feuding with Charlotte and omfg, Hall Of Fame they deserve that shit they didn’t have forced title reigns or multiple PPV’s but they deserve it!

  • Health comes first. Now that she has a ring, the feuds about her marriage can stop and hopefully once she returns we can see this happen

    • QueenSableBomb

      hopefully not

      • Welchy

        Lmao

    • I’d like to see her with the Raw Women’s Title. Something about her seems like a Raw Superstar.

      • howie_ruhl

        “Something about her seems like a Raw Superstar.”

        For instance, the fact that more interesting people have been overlooked just for her.

        • Like who? Did Carmella not beat her ass week after week and ended up in the WM title match? Did Nattie not win their feud? Did green Alexa not win 2 titles already? Did Naomi not do the same? Did Becky not win the first ever SD title match, gotten steel cage, SD main event matches? No?

        • Or maybe you’re forgetting about how Nikki was champion for the most important pushes the *then Divas division* had ever seen including Total Divas, which exposes an entire new audience to the world of WWE which probably helped with #GiveDivasAChance movement then turned into the Women’s Evolution. Nikki haters can scrape & scrape & scrape…
          Oh and my point about her being a Raw Superstar comes from the fact that her influence on increasing the importance of Divas/Women’s wrestling can so famously be tied to Raw..where she became the longest reigning Divas Champion of all time.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      I’m sorry Boris but hell no!!! -1000 no!

    • Number One

      One more time YES!!!

    • Fearless Nikki

      I would love to see this. She deserves it honestly.

    • TabbyK

      Yes. Hopefully she has one more feud against Charlotte.

    • Limfox #JanitorOfTalkingDivas

      No thank you :)

    • Welchy

      No thanks

  • Memo Soto

    What was the fucking point of her winning if she was leaving? I felt like she won just because Cena was going to propose, which validates what Miz was saying about Cena during the whole feud. She could easily have loss, and then cena cut a promo on how he knew she was disappointed for losing but he asures her his love is bigger than everything, pulls out the ring and ash her to leave with him, right now. THAT WOULD’VE BE WAY MORE EXCITING than the stupid pre ER question.

    • wwepassion

      What exactly would miz have gotten if he won? Nothing just like he got nothing after wining the mania 27 match. It’s not that deep. Plus why the hell would Nikki and Cena lose when Maryse didn’t even do shit? The match was not going to make or break the miz so get over it.

      • Phenomenally AWESOME

        If u really think that all of Miz/maryse’s promo work leading up to this match with them winning it in the end would do absolutely nothing for them, then your more delusional than I thought

      • Memo Soto

        1.- A win for Miz would have been a push in his character, which is the most important heel as of right now on SDLive.
        2.- Obviously, if the match was booked on a different storyline the match itself would have been different, so Maryse would have done shit.
        3.- Im not saying the match was going to make or break Miz, but what its the point in having a result if the result is gonna have no influence in storyline or characters.

        • wwepassion

          This made no sense, his character has been the focus even before this feud. This match did not hurt him as everyone who isn’t obsessively hatful towards Cena and Nikki understand the match was just entertainment more than OMG this is going to make the miz the biggest star ever.

        • Number One

          The only push Miz deserves is out the door. The result was fine. Get over it

          • TabbyK

            YES

      • Stephan Fitzgerald Taylor

        What could Maryse do? Nikki is injured and serious bumping (and no, a hop off the apron, a short diving axe handle, and a TKO are not serious bumping) would have aggravated her injuries more.

        Miz and Maryse winning would have given them momentum and it is customary that you put someone over when you go out if possible. The proposal would have been a moment regardless of Cena and Nikki winning or losing–hell, did Macho Man win before proposing to Elizabeth?

        • wwepassion

          You don’t know wrestling if you think diving out of the ring isn’t serious bumping and lifting someone on your shoulders is nothing. You are just reaching for excuses for Maryse being worthless.

          • Stephan Fitzgerald Taylor

            Once again, the hard work in wrestling is bumping, not offense typically. Nikki didn’t even do a crossbody, she axe-handled Miz as it is a safer fall. And once again, lifting someone lighter than you up into a fireman’s carry isn’t freaking hard. She did a tackle that Maryse sold well. She did a forearm that Maryse sold well.

            From other angle: what could Maryse do to Nikki that Nikki could have sold without possibly aggravating her neck injury? Maryse couldn’t do a hair pulling take down (at least not one that looked good) because that could strain Nicole’s neck. She couldn’t give her the French Kiss as that would definitely put some strain on Nicole’s neck. What moves, catfight/brawl or more traditional wrestling, could Maryse do that would be safe for someone with a neck injury to take?

    • She never won a WM match so give her a pass here, this was the right moment, with her loved one. The only one damaged here is Miz but I’m sure he’ll bounce back tonight and this is a win situation for him since both Nikki and Cena left and proved what he said.

      • QueenSableBomb

        give her a pass just because she never won a match at WM? uh..

        • is she not allowed to have a WM moment? From WM 25 battle royal, to having her match cancelled, to losing Vickie invitational, to tapping out to AJ, to missing WM to an injury, I think it was about time someone of her status got her own shine

          • QueenSableBomb

            no one said she can’t have a WM moment, but she could’ve had one without winning the match.

          • well whole WM 33 was her moment, both winning and proposal

          • Allyn

            Some people just don’t get it, I’m so happy for Nikki this was indeed HER moment and it was very heartfelt

          • QueenSableBomb

            lol okay

          • Stephan Fitzgerald Taylor

            Her moment was the proposal. The match was nothing to write home about.

          • If it was nothing then why all the fuss about it? Let her enjoy her moment.

          • Stephan Fitzgerald Taylor

            The match was booked poorly. It could have been a win-win, not a win-lose.

      • Memo Soto

        I do understand that, but i think there’s a lot of options for creative to have given Nikki her WM moment and also continue the development of MarMiz as a couple on some type or form.

        • Maybe but I think this was ok considering it being ”special moment”, but it’s over now and Miz is still there so I hope he wins MITB next

    • QueenSableBomb

      it makes no sense. but whatever lol

    • Wicked Emma #WickedGirl

      You know that This feud was just a storyline it wasn’t real.

  • StraightFire

    Glad she’s putting her health first. Now that she probably won’t be on TV till the summer Smackdown needs a star like Charlotte if there are gonna be trades next week.

    • Memo Soto

      Every girl on RAW > Charlotte, tbh.

      • Wicked Emma #WickedGirl

        No

    Jk. Take all the time u need Nikki. Even when u think ur ready to come back… Take more time. Ur health? is important

    • MK126

      I think her problem was she came back to fast. Sure they cleared her but it seemed like as soon as they cleared her she ran into training which i commend BUT i think she definitely should have waited a bit before jumping in the ring

      • wwepassion

        She didn’t come back too fast she is doing it smart unlike edge who didn’t work part time after his injury so he was forced to retire.

        • Stephan Fitzgerald Taylor

          Why are you bringing Edge into this? Edge worked FOR YEARS post neck injury. She has only been back for what? A few months?

          • wwepassion

            Maybe that what edge should have done. Nikki is doing it smart working part time. Edge would probably be here still if he would have worked part time but nope he worked 300 days a year non stop. I am making a point it not that difficult to see why I used edge as an example.

          • Stephan Fitzgerald Taylor

            Edge was feeling fine a year after his surgery. Nikki isn’t. Nikki isn’t doing anything “smarter” than anyone else. She is doing things differently. Also, Edge came out with a 20 year career in wrestling. Nikki is just hitting 10 and is probably going to be out soon due to injury.

          • wwepassion

            She’s doing the smarter thing period.

          • TabbyK

            Nikki didn’t even take a year out after surgery and she had the same surgery Edge did. So people are right in saying she came back too soon.

          • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

            She wasn’t being “smart” by coming back before being healed up…smh passion

        • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

          Wrong she came back prematurely, she should have waited a good full year. Instead came back a few months before a full year would have gone by since her injury. She wasn’t being a patience superstar.

      • ralfikh

        And the fact she non stop been using for storylines. 1st vs Carmella then vs Natalya and last vs Maryse. No pause after her return

      • TabbyK

        Yep I don’t think she would’ve been brought back so soon if Eva didn’t get suspended.

        • MK126

          Even before Eva got suspended she was training and I get it. In the world of WWE you always gotta be ready to rise to the occasion if and when WWE need you but when you have successful surgery theres still gonna be lingering issues (much like with any injury really). I just hope that if and when she does decide to come back her neck wont give her as much problems as it did now

          • TabbyK

            Yeah she was training but training is still different to wrestling full time I think. Very true, I think that’s the plan to take time off and fully heal. She was originally supposed to work a part time schedule anyway. So if/when she comes back it will probably be on a strictly part time basis.

          • MK126

            I agree that training to wrestle and actually wrestling matches are different. I’m just saying that in any case she should have waited a tad longer before jumping back into the ring. I understand her passion for the business and wanting to start right away because she didn’t know if she was going to be able to do it again but messing around with a neck injury is serious business. Look at Candice and Lita. Both were gone for almost over a year before they came back to the ring (sadly Candice injured herself again). Nikki got injured in October and came back for SummerSlam which doesn’t give her enough time to handle any form of PT plus making sure you feel ready to be in the ring again

    • A?.

      That gif. ?

    • Marlon Eric

      lmfao right? please, just…have a few babies and be a house wife for awhile. please.

      Meanwhile you got a gif of 2 flops…yikes

    • howie_ruhl

      Well I’m not. When I saw this I was like, “Go, be happy. Your happiness brings us ‘happiness.”

    • Limfox #JanitorOfTalkingDivas

      Agreed! Lol

    • Jo9834

      This Gif though LOL.

      As a person, I hope Nikki fully heals and finds happiness in every way possible.

      As a wrestler, I really need her to keep away for a while. When her and Cena went over on Sunday and then it became all about their proposal, I literally cringed at what should have been a magical moment. Everything the Miz and Maryse said was right, scripted or not, it did neither of them any favours.

    • The Cavalier

      80 years would be fine for me.

  • wwepassion

    I am glad she is taking time off, her health is more important.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      She not coming back full time. But her health is most important, better she stays away full time.

  • MK126

    Her return has been great and deserves all the rest in the world. Hopefully her and brie return for summerslam like brie wants. Theres gonna be a void in the SDL womens division with her gone so the rest of the ladies are gonna have to step up hard

  • PYM #TheRoadTo5
  • HOLLA

    No matter what, I will ALWAYS love my girl Nikki ????

  • Wicked Bliss

    Girl bye. Go back when you are 100% ready. We will wait for you. And when you’re back bring Brie with you, please.

  • QueenSableBomb

    Stay gone girl. Byeeee. I’m glad she’s putting her health first but the division will be perfectly fine without her.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      Yes, i feel the same way! Smackdown will be even more interesting

      • QueenSableBomb

        exactly! it’s not a huge loss when she’s not around.

        • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

          Nikki needs WWE, WWE does not need her. She ain’t Lita or Trish.

          • wwepassion

            Actually they do need her as she bring the wwe the most money…think before you type.

          • Number One

            Damn straight

          • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

            WWE will be fine without her, She won’t affect the product.

          • wwepassion

            She will affect the women’s lack of stardom…oops! All of a sudden we are getting a shake up when Nikki leaves. Someone will be traded to fill the loss of Nikki.

          • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

            There are big shoes to fill and there’s a big bra to fill. For Nikki’s bra you can easily just stuff it to make it fit. She won’t be missed, easily replaceable.

          • QueenSableBomb

            I’m saying. Her fans out here acting like the division will be in shambles when she leaves. Nah lol. We good.

    • Fearless Nikki

      I’m pretty sure the division kinda need her. Without Nikki, not a lot of people would be watching smackdown tbh. She has the followers, the reality show and the talent, not saying the rest aren’t talented but Nikki has the it factor. She does make the most money out of all the wwe female superstars so technically WWE needs her but her health is more important. This could give a new superstar to grab the spotlight or a possible return from the past superstars.

      • Gabriella Panajotova

        Nakamura is worth 10 AJ’s or Nikki’s or any other female talent.
        Nikki definitely had the popularity I admit, but saying that SD will lose sufficient views while she’s gone is an exageration.
        Plus soon we’ll have another draft and both SD and RAW will start anew anyways. There is a lot of talent in the company, noone is irreplacable.

        • Fearless Nikki

          I’m just saying WWE gets more views cause of the reality show. I’m not saying all the views but some. I’m just glad she’s taking time off for her health.

          • Gabriella Panajotova

            Well, the way you worded it made it seem like you are giving way too much credit to Nikki about SD’s viewership.
            Yes, I agree about her taking time off to check on her health appropriately.

      • QueenSableBomb

        Without Nikki not a lot of people would be watching Smackdown…as if AJ Styles (Who Is HUGE), Becky or Naomi aren’t big enough names on their own. As if none of the other girls have the IT factor. That’s literally playing down the other girls smh, who are just as, if not a little more talented. Smh miss me with that.

        • Fearless Nikki

          Becky and Naomi are huge ngl but Nikki is huge too. All the women on smackdown are talented but all i’m saying is now that nikki is gone, there’s only 5 women left so it’s uneven for a storyline.

          • QueenSableBomb

            uneven for a storyline, because we can’t have a 3-way storyline. okay…

          • Fearless Nikki

            It would be better if it’s 1vs1

          • QueenSableBomb

            A 3-way storyline would work fine as long as it’s well written. They’ve happened before.

          • Fearless Nikki

            True.

  • Thank You Nikki! You were good on almost a year that you came back, maybe you didn’t win the SD Live! Women’s championship, but gave us great feuds also matches with Nattie and Carmella. Hope she come back better than ever but until she heal completely.

  • Aye Mate

    I’ve grown on Nikki just a wee bit since she returned last year, but truthfully I’ll be glad to see the Smackdown women’s title be given more focus.

    • Organization XIII

      Lmfaooooooooooo

      • You KNOWWW how I feel, she should’ve stayed out till she was ready. Another Candice.

        • Organization XIII

          You know I agree wholeheartedly.

        • QueenSableBomb

          LMAOOOO don’t do my girl Candice like that ? but you’re so right

          • Candice my giiiirrrlll, that’s why i was made she didn’t let her body heal so she could come back & get her title.

          • QueenSableBomb

            She left way too soon I’m still so salty over that. I loved Candice

          • Tooo soon.

          • KingsPromise

            I still weep over what Candice Michelle could’ve been

          • QueenSableBomb

            She was so good and she would’ve gotten even better. Ugh.

  • Randall

    Bye….

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    Finally she’s gone, I hope she never returns full time. Bye Nikki! Finally smackdown will be more refreshing and interesting. I hated how Nikki was always booked in feud back to back and it was getting stale. Nikki vs Carmella, vs Nattie, vs Maryse all flopped hard and were a wasted of time.

    • Wicked Emma #WickedGirl

      Don’t even try to blame Nikki for this.

      • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

        I’m not saying Nikki should take all the blame, like 70% of the blame should go to Booking/management on how her feuds went. But some blame should go to Nikki like 20%.

        • Wicked Emma #WickedGirl

          I agree With the booking and management part. Nikki was doing her job in these feuds. But her feuds with Carmella, Nattie , and Maryse. Was exactly the same.

          • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

            If Nikki would have owned up to all her criticisms, 100% she would have been a more refreshing character tbh that why i give her 20% of the blame.

          • Wicked Emma #WickedGirl

            I think they was trying to make Nikki as a babyface sympathetic character.

          • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

            That’s such a big mistake on management and possibly Nikki because we know she cares too much on being liked. Nikki as a heel is 1000% more natural and better as a character, just feels more real. Nikki as a babyface, she comes off so fake and forced/awkward.

          • Wicked Emma #WickedGirl

            I think she plays both Heel and Face well. I think she will be a heel when she returns.

          • QueenSableBomb

            I think she’s better as a heel because she comes off as unlikeable. There’s a reason why Brie plays the better face, she’s naturally likeable. I love Brie, and besides her annoying yells (lmao), I tend to root for her. Nothing about face Nikki makes me like her or get behind her. She’s better as the bitchy type lol

    • lmaoo ”flopped”

      • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

        Sorry my bad, those feuds flop. Its my opinion Boris and you have to respect it.

    • wwepassion

      Flopped? All of Nikkis feuds were better than all of the women feuds and got the most reactions. She will be back and you will be crying like you always do.

      • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

        Isn’t your local library closing now? Why don’t you log off the computer and head on home hun. I think you had enough internet for today.

        • wwepassion

          I see you have no rebuttal….thought so.

        • Limfox #JanitorOfTalkingDivas

          SCRMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

        • QueenSableBomb

          LMAO

    • Fearless Nikki

      It wasn’t a flop. They were better than half the feud we had in raw and smackdown combined. it’s the writers/management fault to keep it repetitive. She just wanted to wrestle cause that was her passion. She deserves to comeback.

    • TabbyK

      Your hatred really clouds your judgment.

  • Wicked Emma #WickedGirl

    Nikki take care of yourself and cone back 100%.

  • MeddlingDiva

    They left something out.
    Does that also include Total Bellas?

  • Robann

    Lmfaoo y’all are some haters. The girl won her first WM match AND got proposed by the man that she loves in front of all of the naysayers and haters and is now rightfully taking time off to heal from injuries and y’all still find a way to slide in snide ass remarks.

    Be honest, y’all don’t give a shit about Miz and Maryse and only overhype them because you have some childish vendetta against Cena even though dude is a literal work horse. NO ONE WAS CHECKING FOR MIZ NOR MARYSE BEFORE THIS FEUD. Period. Maryse was slightly above average when she competed in the wrong, and her title reigns were NOT memorable. Miz has literally had the same whiny, I’m not getting my way so I blame everyone else gimmick for years. You replace John Cena with CM Punk and you have the Miz/Punk feud from years ago. So please stop.

    This is not to discredit neither one, but let’s stop overhyping them and then turn around and complain about Nena’s hype and fan bases.

    • wwepassion

      Exactly, they are fake Maryse fans who are acting like they wanted her to win but really they just wanted Nikki to lose. Now some are celebrating her taking a break because they know their favs can’t outshine her so now they think they’ll have a chance. No one will fill the space of Nikki over night.

      • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

        It would take like one afternoon to replace Nikki. Stop talking like Nikki leaving will leave a big @ss gap in the division. She was nothing more than a distraction. Get over yourself passion.

        • wwepassion

          She got you in your feelings lol. No one makes the company more money than Nikki….FACT. You won’t have anyone taking her place over night. I know you obsessively hate her but to deny facts is just desperate

    but JOHHHHHHHHNNNNNNNNNNNNN, what about HER SD title reign!?????? Her feuds could have had a bit more substance, but I enjoyed nikki’s return. glad she’s focusing on her health.

  • Delroy Coke

    GET well Nikki bella and take your time to heal the bad neck. You will be back for the women’s title and possible a Bella Twins reunion

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Well this sucks I was sure after the physicality of her match with nattie this rumor wouldn’t have been true but I guess not. Get well soon Nikki so you can come back and snatch that women’s title on either brand!

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    So isn’t she suppose to be gone for a couple months? Why does this article seem to be talk about years or something.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    I just hope she doesn’t bring Brie wit her! Solo Nikki is the best Nikki!

  • Passion #VicePresidentOfTD

    :(

  • Stephan Fitzgerald Taylor

    No wonder the match saw Maryse take two moves and Nikki do a short fall, a short dive, and a forearm…she’s been working INJURED and could not risk bumping for Maryse on Sunday.

  • Organization XIII

    I like Nikki but I always felt she rushed her comeback. & I do feel we suffered from a wrestling aspect with her being back because they catered to her by limiting the bumps she could take. Hopefully she’ll take the proper amount of time to heal so she can come back better & refreshed. Wishing her the best

  • Mark

    I love her. I love her passion. I love her personality. I think she is sooo adorable and cute! And I hate to say this but I can’t help it but I just don’t think she’s really good for the WWE. She is perfect for Total Divas/Bella’s and being this reality star or like doing SOMETHING in the media just not wrestling. I’m happy she got the ring though x

    Ew I can’t with all of you assholes in the comments

  • TabbyK

    Lmao people acting like Nikki wasn’t an important part of Smackdown. Natalya would be still quoting song lyrics and Carmella would be a moonwalking bland face without Nikki to work against. You guys can be as petty as you like and pretend she did absolutely nothing for this division but she did more than you people refuse to give her credit for. And I bet you’re gonna start to notice that really soon if things stay exactly as they are in SDs women’s division.

  • Booking 101

    It’s not a surprise. I don’t think she will ever full recover from that injury and I’m hoping she won’t have any severe consequences from it in the future.

    We could see from her FCA match with Nattie that she wasn’t one hundred percent. Usually the babyface takes the bigger bumps in that sort of match and Nattie was the one to take them to protect her.

    Despite not liking any of her storylines since returning, she came back as a solid wrestler and had the some of the best matches of her career (the one mentioned above with Nattie being the best one). Doing that after such a devastating injury deserves nothing more but admiration. Great job and thank you Nikki :D

    Kinda bummed they didn’t use her returning as her trying to get redemption and trying to climb the ladder again. Would have been really cool to see if it was well booked

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Respect her for her dedication and her passion and I totally understand her taking a break. You have to put health before anything else so good on her to take such decision.

    Now, I won’t miss her one bit. If SD is truly about giving girls opportunities, this won’t change much and this will actually give more spotlight to others. I have never connected to her and neither her sister and I have zero interest in Nikki returning or even Brie whose entire abilities are overrated because she’s the more likable twin when overall, Nikki is better.

    It’s a quite a loss because she is a big name but I won’t miss her personally. I wish her a good recovery nonetheless but she can totally take her time.

    • TabbyK

      Your Brie/Nikki analysis is spot on. Nikki is a big name but as much as it pains me to says this, someone like Charlotte can probably take her spot if they decide to trade her next week.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Yeah true, they have built Charlotte so much that it won’t be that hard for her to replace her in that sense. Now, I am wondering who is gonna step up and try to take that spot as one of the top face now that Nikki is “leaving” (Becky aside because she has cemented herself already). Naomi could be the one and I don’t see Charlotte turning face but who knows…

        • TabbyK

          I think Naomi was kind of already taking her place. I know its probably nothing but Nikki was listed as one of the ones to watch this year, before she was planning to take a break. So it looked like she was going for the title. Then rumours of her retirement started spreading and when Naomi came back they immediately pushed her into the title picture.

    • wwepassion

      More spotlight? Did Carmella not beat her ass week after week and ended up in the WM title match? Did Nattie not win their feud? Did green Alexa not win 2 titles already? Did Naomi not do the same? Did Becky not win the first ever SD title match, gotten steel cage, SD main event matches? No?

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        You, CLEARLY, didn’t get my point here. A big name leaving gives an opportunity for others to step up.
        It’s the case when John Cena leave, if Charlotte or Sasha or Bayley or Becky would get injured severely, if Roman Reigns were about to take a break, it’s a reality.

        You’re way too sensitive when it comes to Nikki Bella and that’s something you need to work on because it’s embarrassing. And please when you copy and past a comment from someone else, AT LEAST, tell it because it is laughable.

        • wwepassion

          If you can see above I mentioned Boris wrote this so nice try. Anyway you are way too hateful towards Nikki and always have been it’s embarrassing. Again no one needs to step up because that’s what they all have been doing even with Nikki her. Had Nikki not been here Carmell and Nattie wouldn’t have had the 2 best feuds out of all the women. So again I copy and paste….Did Carmella not beat her ass week after week and ended up in the WM title match? Did Nattie not win their feud? Did green Alexa not win 2 titles already? Did Naomi not do the same? Did Becky not win the first ever SD title match, gotten steel cage, SD main event matches? No?

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Talking with you is a waste of time!
            Your lack of intelligence and logic, and your unconditionally embarrassing love Nikki gives me a headache. I don’t even know why I am responding to you after all this time tbh…

          • wwepassion

            I love your excuses because you really have no argument. You are totally biased when it comes to Nikki and say things that don’t even make sense. Clearly you haven’t been paying attention if you actually think the women other Nikki have gotten no shine or now can step up? Alexa 2 time champ , Naomi 2 time champ, Becky first ever champ, cage matches which Nikki wasn’t apart of nor a title Mania match. Nikki lost to 2 rookies Carmella and Alexa in important matches, Nikki got roasted in every single feud she had and openly let them dig hard and say what ever. Guess what it mad all of those girls relevant and and gain credibility, also the best feuds from both brands so what the f*ck are you talking about? You are delusional point blank period.

            Thought so

  • Limfox #JanitorOfTalkingDivas

    I don’t know Hall of Fame just doesn’t come to mind when I think of Brie. She didn’t really accomplish anything…she has a 1 week Divas title reign and a “feud with Stephanie” under her belt (and I don’t qualify that as an accomplishment. Quite a few superstars feuded with Steph so don’t see that as an accolade). Idk. Objectively I only think Nikki should go in but I don’t think they’re going to leave Brie out, bc it won’t look good and it might hurt her feelings

    • Bri-Mode

      That 1 week reign is Nikki’s…

      • Limfox #JanitorOfTalkingDivas

        Whatever…she had a short reign when she won it the first time. My point still stands.

        • Ashlee Law

          no she didn’t. She had it for Three months lol.

        • Bri-Mode

          Touché. It was a forgetable reign but you know, all these hall of fame talks, the Bellas were the only women from WWE that managed to cross over to the main stream.

          When the WWE can create another cross over stars is when they will cut the Bellas.

          That alone would probably confirmed both Nikki and Brie’s place in the HOF.

          • Limfox #JanitorOfTalkingDivas

            “the Bellas were the only women from WWE that managed to cross over to the main stream”

            No, that would be Trish Stratus. She was hosting award shows (i.e. Canada Walk of Fame), featured on HUNDREDS of magazines (i.e. Oxygen, MuscleMag, TV Guide, etc.), was guest featured in high profile shows (i.e. Mad TV, MTV Cribs, etc.). So no, the Bellas weren’t the “only” women to cross over to the main stream. Trish Stratus was actually the first woman to cross over to the mainstream and taught the Bellas how to do it.

            And I can stand corrected that Brie’s reign was ~3 months, not 1 week. But regardless, my point still stands. I don’t feel Brie is deserving of the HoF.

            This is something we’re just going to have to agree to disagree on.

          • Bri-Mode

            Hey no worries man, we can have a healthy discussion without getting hostile :)

            I do think that Trish did a lot for the Bellas by leading the path to the mainstream but hey, the Bellas have 2 reality tv shows, walking red carpets (be it as a D list celebrity *shout out to AJ lee” ) and running business while wrestling.

            I do think they extended a bit more than Trish did while she was in the WWE

          • QueenSableBomb

            I think Sunny or even Sable could be considered cross over stars. Or Stacy. The twins are not the first women’s wrestlers to be able to cross over. Yall keep forgetting that and yall hype it up so much.

          • MK126

            The thing with Trish was she was already in the mainstream spotlight (although in Canada) and was signed because of the name she was making for herself in the fitness modeling world. It just so happened that Trish was able to get mainstream American attention with her features on MTV and many other magazines. Her mainstream appeal rose during her career in the WWE

  • Bri-Mode

    Bellas have cross over appeal, the only stars that can’t be replaced on total divas.

    WWE would want to keep them around until they can create another crossover star.

    The 4HW are amazing in the ring but they won’t cut it in the mainstream.

    They were trying to make Eva into one until recent events so back to the drawing board for WWE and more power to the Bellas

  • Welchy

    Bye

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    Well this we already knew, she had a career ending injury. She still came back and gave us great months, the storylines with Carmella, Natalya and now The Miz, Maryse & John Cena were all fun to watch and at some points she had amazing matches too. I expected at least one more run with the belt but at the same time, she didn’t need it. She did so much without the championship that I can only appreciate it. While is sad that she’s leaving, she’s from the past generation, she was even mention along with Brie during Beth’s speech, this just shows how long her career have been. I remember interviews with McCool stating that The twins wanted to wrestle and thankfully their dreams came true, they became the face of the division once they returned and gave us great moments. It’s ok if she retires after this. It will open the door to another to other women, not only from NXT but in the main roster as well. Nikki for sure will be very missed.

  • Sha95

    I honestly think that Nikki should retire. Her and Brie (more so Nikki tho), have had HOF-worthy careers considering their career accomplishments and cross-over success. Health always comes first!

    • George Cuc

      Not really, she’s still not worthy for HOF. She needs to become a 4x champion, main event a show & more iconic moments.
      I believe she can do it when she’s back

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      Nikki definitely with a couple of more years under her belt and groundbreaking moments I can see as a HOF material, but Brie absolutely not. Brie’s only more memorable moment was her feud with Stephanie. That was basically the highlight of her career.

      • Geek God

        Right, NIKKI is on her way to a HoF career, not Brie, she doesn’t deserve it just because she’s her sister smh

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Brie is a Layla El situation where she can thank her tag team partner because without her, she wouldn’t be HOF worthy. Brie’s single career simply isn’t impressing enough to be in the HOF just like Layla’s solo career isn’t so good and Brie has the advantage over Layla because we know the Bellas brand will allow both to go the HOF largely due to Nikki’s success while it’s not even sure Layla will go unless McCool pushes for it even if McCool will definitely go in anyway.

  • George Cuc

    Hope she gets a championship push when she comebacks. She deserves it for making 3 girls relevant ?

  • Simone Mackey

    I love The Bellas and hope both of them return soon. They are very entertaining, heel or babyface. I think they’re much better wrestlers now than they were back in 08. However I do agree it was too soon for Nikki to come back. I think she’ll be back when Brie is off maternity.

  • chrissi calvert

    Proposal was corny as hell and had “total divas/Bella” written all over it. Nikki going away won’t hinder the division, it will make it better

    • wwepassion

      How did she hinder? Did Carmella not beat her ass week after week and ended up in the WM title match? Did Nattie not win their feud? Did green Alexa not win 2 titles already? Did Naomi not do the same? Did Becky not win the first ever SD title match, gotten steel cage, SD main event matches? No? -Boris

  • Jouey

    Hope she back soon, and I want Brie will have at least one more title run, I want they to be in different brands.

  • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

    I’m a little worried here. She’s wants to get Undertaker treatment at this point. Is she really _THAT_ important? Bringing her in once a year for WM doesn’t really interest me. Mini returns? Sure. But I don’t like the idea of her just showing up for a big WM paycheck. The women get few WM mania matches. The WM match should go to whoever made an impact that year.

    At this point she’s most likely going to end up on an E! show. Fashion police maybe? Something like that plus TD & TB.

    • PYM #TheRoadTo5

      The fans probably don’t care for Nikki, but she has done a lot for WWE along with her sister Brie. By making Total Divas a top show on the E! Network and helping make WWE a common topic to more mainstream media outlets. Also, since when does Vince or any one in charge care what the fans think?
