On this week’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, the remaining contestants were given the task of taking a trip down memory lane for their “most memorable year” ever.

For WWE Superstar Nikki Bella, that year was 2016 – the year Nikki made her return to the ring following a serious neck injury. Nikki’s fiance John Cena and sister Brie Bella reflected back on Nikki’s near career-ending injury but added that it was her strength and will to be fearless that got her through it.

Nikki Bella and her pro dance partner Artem Chigvintsev danced the Contemporary to “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten, which was praised by the DWTS judge panel for its dialogue and athleticism. They earned a total of 24 points out of 30, #TeamSmackDown’s highest score of the season so far!

Below is a breakdown of #TeamSmackDown’s weekly score so far:

  • Week 1 – First Dances: 20 out of 30

  • So happy, she did great and loved her story. Hopefully Nick is next to go home.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      I don’t think he’s quite as bad as the judges are making him out to be. They’ve been under scoring him at times. He wouldn’t be my next choice to leave, but I wouldn’t really be upset if he did. (Even though Peta is one of my favorite pros)

      • Not to me, he’s so boring and lacks personality and it looks like he’s just going through the motions when he’s dancing.

  • MK126

    ??? these aren’t tears im just sweaty af

  • Alex

    Competition is so fierce, everyone is good. She’s still in real danger of being eliminated next week so hopefully people voted.

  • Geo14

    She deserved a higher score.

  • Gato_wiska

  • Nikki’s Sister

    She better not be eliminated next week.

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    Definitely her best dance so far. Based on skills she’s definitely in the lower half right now.

    Jordan/Lindsey/Vanessa are my pick for top 3. They’re all so far ahead of the rest IMO.

    Though last season the best dancer (Heather) went home super early, so anything can happen with the fan votes. For some reason the conservative fan base gets turned off if a star is too good, and they always vote for the sob story or athlete even if they’re not very good. So for that reason I can see Terell and Victoria making it to the finals, unfortunately.

    • Alex

      The show is predominantly watched by older women which is why men go into the show with a huge voting advantage. Vanessa won’t make top three, she doesn’t have a big fanbase, is very loud/polarising and doesn’t get on with her pro. The top three will be Jordan, Lindsey and Frankie. Fourth will probably either be Victoria or Drew. Nikki isn’t a bad dancer, she’s just stuck in the middle of the pack and is basically surviving now on fan votes rather than scores now the show is at the halfway stage and everyone can dance at least half decent.

  • Mark?

    I feel like some of the judges votes are based off of star power. Let’s face it, Nikki has her own E! reality show and she’s a WWE star but some of these people on the show EVERYBODY or most people know. DWTS wants the publicity from the media so they score higher on more well-known people to keep them around. Nikki always seems to deserve a higher score but she never gets it because she’s a “WWE star.”

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      I kind of disagree! Nicole Scherzinger from the Pussycat Dolls won DWTS. Although I’m a huge fan of hers compared to about a good half of the competitors that season, theywas more famous than her. Nikki is pretty much the Nicole of her season. The question is can she win like Nicole? Nicole scored just like Nikki so it’s a possibility she could win. Hell even Stacy Keibler had almost the same amount of popularity as Nikki, and she almost won.

      • Moan of ‘Licia

        Nikki is stiffer than her sextoys, while those girls had dance backgrounds.

      • Alex

        Difference being Nicole was the best dancer of her season as was Stacy. Both were already trained dancers so came in with an advantage. Nikki has zero dance experience and is somewhere in the middle of pack when it comes to dance ability. The best is Jordan Fisher who is once again a trained dancer. I agree though Nikki has been underscored this season. She has ties to NBC and DWTS airs on ABC so they don’t want her to get far in the competition.

        • YonceLuvsDivas

          Nikki is a better dancer than they score her. You can tell wrestling has helped her in the routines because of the body movement and coordination. She even makes the same faces she does as if she’s in the ring.

  • Dreignz

    Queen is doing amazing, I’m so proud of her

  • totallyneccessary #NAOorNEVER

    She has really morphed back into Brie… Ever since Birdie was born, Nikki has a glow and confidence that Brie had…. It’s the security of love or something…. BUT this was a great job GO Nikki

  • Carolution

    man shes boring.
