After seven weeks of competing on Dancing with the Stars, Nikki Bella‘s time on the show has come to an end.

During the show’s Halloween themed special, Nikki alongside her pro dance partner Artem Chigvintsev, who dubbed themselves #TeamSmackDown, danced the Jive to “I Put A Spell On You” by Bette Midler from Hocus Pocus, which is earned them 24 out of 30 from the judges.

In addition to a single dance routine, this week also called for the remaining couples to break into teams of two to learn a team dance routine. Nikki joined fellow stars Lindsey Stirling, Jordan Fisher and Terrell Owens, dubbed Team Monster Mash, danced a freestyle routine to “Monster? ?Mash” by Atwater? ?Men’s? ?Club, which also earned a score of 24 out of 30.

By the end of the night however, TeamSmackDown found themselves in the bottom two alongside Vanessa Lachey and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. During the shocking elimination, it was revealed that both dance couples would be going homes as part of a surprise Double Elimination.

Both members of #TeamSmackDown took to social media to open up about their experience and shocking elimination from the ballroom floor:

Goodness where do I begin ☺️ Bella Army I just LOVE you all so much! Your continued love and support for Brie and I is truly the most incredible thing in the world! We wouldn’t be who we are today without you all. And I wouldn’t have been on DWTS from the start and till last night without you all! So thank you thank you! Secondly, my @dancingabc family 💛 My goodness I didn’t know I could gain so many new family members so quickly! This has been one of the most incredible journeys of my life! From the crew, to the producers, to the staff, to the wardrobe team, to catering, to the hair and makeup team, the cast and dancers wow I just love you all so much! You create such a positive environment it’s so empowering! I couldn’t have done any of this without you all piecing me together and turning me into a dancing competitor! I will miss you all SO much! And lastly, had to of course save the best for last, my @theartemc 😊 You are truly a one of a kind! Such a sweet, gentle soul. I hope the world gets to know you like I have. Thank you for pushing me beyond my limits, going so out of my comfort zone that I didn’t think it was possible, making me vulnerable, brave, and truly fearless. I know I’ll never put my feet together or control these hips lol but you made this fierce fighter into an elegant dancing queen! Who knew! 😜 I will miss putting you in wrestling moves constantly haha, having our coffee talks, rehearsals, laughing and just having so much fun! You truly made this journey for me UNFORGETTABLE… and I will never ever thank you enough for that! Love you DWTS family! Always and forever! 💛💃🏽🕺🏼

    i wouldnt be surprised if artem came to her hotel room late at night to “practice their routine’ ?

    • ?too litty?

      Stop…? We all Nikki wouldn’t do that because she loves John too much. However, I’d gladly take Nikki’s spot if Artem trynna dick someone down.

    • Wicked Emma

      Nikki’s in love with John. Why would she put her relationship in jeopardy.

  • OJ Von Erich

    Such a shame she left at this point, she was improving with every show, I definitely saw another 2 weeks left in her at least, but what a great journey she’s been on & the friendship she formed with Artem seemed awesome, what a cool pair.

    Nikki can definitely move, I hope this brings more spotlight & opportunities to her table.

    Well done Nikki.

    • Alex

      She would have been gone next week for sure had she survived with the scores she got last night, but I agree she didn’t deserve to go, it should have been Terrell Owens. Having said that she did well to get this far considering she was bottom of the leaderboard in week 2.

    • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

      “she was improving” this is what you always say about everything Nikki does. It’s funny how Nikki’s fandom are able to say that she is not good at anything.

      • OJ Von Erich

        She was good though.

  • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

    Fuck these ppl who voted her off

  • TabbyK

    I was honestly shook at how angry Artem was. The way they announced this double was trash and Nikki deserved better.

  • Sad news! I loved her dancing routines so much.

  • 3???????

    Hope she atleast got the D

    • ?too litty?

      Listen…. it’s clear her loyalty remains with John.

    • ?too litty?

      But I’d definetly take his D

    • Wicked Emma

      Nikki’s in love with John

  • Alex

    Look on the bright side Nikki. You made it pretty far and most importantly, outlasted Jericho!

    • Summer_Slay #Justice4SummerRae

      Queen Stacy still slayed them both.

      • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

        Stacy will forever be trash?

        • YonceLuvsDivas

          Girrlllll don’t come for Stacy!

        • hitesh khanna

          ur trash b***h

  • Super Mateo

    The way they did the double elimination was complete BS. It was mean spirited and I don’t think I’ll be watching this show regularly. This is the first season I’ve really gotten into and it may be the last.

    Anyway, if I had to guess, I’d say Nikki (unfortunately) was at the bottom and was going either way, and that this cheap ploy was a way of getting rid of Vanessa now that their couple vs. couple story is dead in the water due to Nick’s elimination. Vanessa and Maks served their purpose and now the show got rid of them.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    From the lil bit I’ve seen online I thought she was pretty good and better than most people I’ve seen on DWTS. But I guess I don’t know ballroom dancing. Anyway I find her getting eliminated being good! I need to hear “You can look but don’t touch” blasting through my tv screen on preferably Tuesdays!

  • hitesh khanna

    Honestly she was alright and impressive at some dances but that doesnt mean she should be entitled to stay longer just cause she has a strong fanbase.. and she needs to get over herself, esp the tweet she sent out after her elimination. Yes it sucks that candidate from the wresting world got eliminated but she needs to stop acting like she was queen b cause she just started achieving all this fame in the last few years and also john cena had a big part of it! She should be grateful that she even got an opportunity like this.

  • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

    Shocked who? She is not known outside of wrestling, it was only a matter of time before she was eliminated.

    • hitesh khanna


  • Wicked Emma

    Why Artem always touching her?

  • Carolution

    she couldn’t dance anyway.
