Bella Twins Officially Gone from WWE

WWE.com is reporting that the Bella Twins, Brie and Nikki, have been “fired” from WWE.

In reality, as reported a few weeks ago, the twins’ contracts expire today — April 30th — and they’ve opted not to renew.

Stay tuned for more.

    It’s a shame that they’re gone cause I started liking them somewhat. They were on TV enough for me to get to know them. At least they left on a high note… both Bellas got to hold the Divas title. Too bad they never let Gail hold it considering she was probably the best wrestler in the women division at the time. Oh well.

    LOL they even joked about their ‘release’. It’s a storyline. Don’t celebrate too soon.

  • Melina&Mickie4ever!

    There could still be hope maybe this is Kayfabe….*fingers crossed*

  • lbthewrestlingnerd

    Sadly WWE still doesn’t care, so nothing will change, but maybe two new women who are better in the ring will be hired. Talented women in one minute matches are better than untalented women in one minute matches,

    • Air-Bourne

      Actually no i think you’ll find it isn’t as they will also have no time to show off any talent!!

      • lbthewrestlingnerd

        If you can’t do moves properly, can’t bump/run the ropes properly, scream in the ring, spend half your time pulling someone’s hair….. that shows enough LOL

  • Steve_x

    I have mixed feelings about this. I did like Bella Twins, so it sucks they are gone. But i’m more happy because it’s 2 more reasons for me not to watch WWE. I hate WWE so much, i am just waiting for Eve, Kelly, Beth, Natalya & Alicia to be gone, then WWE has lost me a viewer.

  • ShimmerSupport211

    there’s the door! there are people that don’t like people like me saying that but sorry, this is a good thing. layla as champ is a good thing for the moment. just let the next diva championship opponent be a good wrestler like a kharma or a beth or a nattie so we can see layla’s new improvement really put to the test.

    It’s not a storyline, stop. It was said they were going to be released weeks ago and apparently, it’s true. Let it go, they’re gone! NO STORYLINE HERE!

    Immature but just like the others ….YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES! They’ll probably get another job in modeling and they make money during appearances as well so they’ll be fine.

  • lbthewrestlingnerd

    Please don’t be a storyline :(

  • revivingophelia

    For those saying it’s not real… They could really be gone.

    If the Bellas are gone, they weren’t released like most people. THEY opted not to sign a new contract and chose to leave. People in that situation have, in the past, sometimes gotten retirement story lines (Trish, Lita, etc.) or fired story lines. Michelle got a loser leaves WWE match. Jeff Hardy and Chris Jericho both did matches where the stipulation was that they got fired if they lost. (Jericho in 2005, losing to Cena and Hardy in 2009 losing to CM Punk.) I realize that the Bellas didn’t get a ‘loser gets fired’, but they still could be exiting with a fired story line like others have done.

  • mariah.

    Well if it’s true then bye Bellas. I know I’ll miss you since you were just starting to grow on me :(

  • Litaker61

    Not really sad to see them go but at the same time I think WWE missed the boat for Kharma’s return, its all well and good not wanting to put the belt on her straight away but tonight was a great chance to use her to destroy the twins on their way out. Sigh…

  • numero47

    Never been a fan of theirs, happy to see then go but wish them te best with whatever project they decide to do next.

  • Steve_x

    Lol at people thinking them being gone is going to change with the divas.It doesn’t matter which divas they have, WWE just doesn’t care.
    3 things i learned from tonight’s Raw
    1 – Once again it is pointless to expect something from WWE.
    2 – Layla being champion isn’t going to change anything with the divas.
    3 – People should get over Kharma returning. It may happen, but it’s pointless expecting her to return every match.

    • French.One

      Keep in mind 2 things :
      - You can not have a successful division if you don’t give it 5 minutes match
      - You can not have a successful division if your divas can not work a five minutes match.

      • Steve_x

        They can work a five minute match, if WWE gives them time. People always criticize Kelly for not being able to compete well, but when she is given time, she proves she can. WWE is to blame, not the divas.

      • Jake

        Yet they have worked 10 minute matches at house shows and the girls from FCW have around 5 minute matches every week, plus longer ones at house shows.

  • redsandman99

    On Twitter, Nikki said that she was gonna ask Lauranitis for a rematch. Given his mood, does anyone else think they got “fired” for bothering him?

  • KillerKing

    I am so glad I won’t ever have to hear those two on the mic again.

  • numero47

    Looking at some of these comments and seeing some say that this is part of a storyline reminds me of last week when we were discussing whether Beth’s injury was real or not

    Guess we can expect a other Reader’s Poll: “Bellas’ Departure: Real or Not?” (My vote goes to Not)

  • FrankNFurter

    This is obviously the beginning of the “Summer of The Bella Twins” storyline. But serioisly I’m going to miss these two.

  • THETommyTommy

    I reckon there will be a WWE.com exclusive of who they pissed off to get “fired.” I would love to see them scrapping in the back and knocking JL over so he fired them or Triple H or Eve!

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

    Immature comment; Hope its a storyline, just to see some people’s reactions.

    Now mature comment; I’ll honestly miss them. Just when they were becoming favorites of mine, this happens -_-. I still hope its a storyline to see people’s reactions.

    • Steve_x

      The only reason i would hope it is a storyline is because i like Bella Twins, and it would be good to have them return. However it doesn’t bother me if they do go, and it has nothing to do with them, i just want to stop watching WWE, but i’m waiting for my favorite divas to leave.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        I like the twins too, well I dont really dislike any divas lol. But I like the bellas to a bigger exent. This would be a good way to give them time off too. And as far as divas go, I only like 3; Eve, AJ, Layla. Those girls leave, I’ll be pretty much done.

        • Steve_x

          lol yeah i don’t dislike any divas either, there are just ones i’m not interested in watching. I only really watch for the divas that were around when Melina was. Melina was the reason i started watching, so i’m now only watching because of Kelly, Eve, Alicia, Beth & Natalya.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          I agree. I started watching because of mickie & melina too. But Im left with not alot of options. Eve, Layla, AJ. Im glad they’re getting spotlight at the same time though :p

        • Steve_x

          Lol yeah i’m loving what they are doing with Eve right now. I just hope we get to see her wrestle again, and i’m hoping heel Eve gets to become divas champion.

  • Kessuki

    as both me and my brother were watching we half expected them to go out with a bang, in similar fashion to mccool but maybe wwe didnt want to give the bellas the option of having a good send off if they rejected a new contract.

    i have to admit i am not a fan of the bella twins but that interview they did with a french reporter which divadirt posted a week ago really made me smile at how well they came across in real life. i believe they are both smart and sassy and will do well without wwe. theres no point in pitying them for losing their jobs as they quit themselves they were not fired.

  • Timalee

    I’m wounder something.
    Trish last match- won
    Lita’s last match – lost
    Mickie James last match – lost
    Melina last match – lost
    Maryse last match – lost
    Cherry last match – lost
    Maria last match – lost
    MichelleMcCool last match – lost
    Victoria last match – lost
    Bellas last match – lost…
    Hmmm,I thinksomewon needs to go out big real soon

    • FrankNFurter

      It’s going to be Kelly Kelly, she can’t put anyone over with her skills.

      • Melina&Mickie4ever!

        CTFU @Frank lol

    • Steve_x

      Torrie Wilson won her last match.

      • WWFoverWWE

        That’s because she told management she was leaving AFTER her match. They had no idea before.

        • Steve_x

          True if they did know she was leaving, she probably would have lost her match too.

    • perceval

      You forgot Chyna, who won her final match.

      It’s rare that ANYBODY wins their final match. Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, the Rock (as a full time active member of the roster), Ric Flair… All lost their last matches, there.

    • norisclouds

      It’s the norm to lose your last match and put someone over in wrestling. When that doesn’t happen it’s usually a special case (like Edge) or political reasons…and I’M NOT SAYING TRISH PLAYED POLITICS it’s well known that there were special reasons why Vince decided to have her win the title.

      I don’t hold it against any wrestler to loser your last match because going out “on your back” is a time honored tradition and something that you are supposed to do and should aspire to…

    • Raekon

      Gail Kim last match – lost
      Ivory last match – lost
      Jaqueline last match – lost
      Luna last match – lost
      Jazz last match – lost
      Chyna last match – lost
      Nidia last match – lost
      Shaniqua last match – lost
      Alundra last match – lost?(don’t remember that one)
      Candice Michelle last match – lost
      Maria last match – lost
      Ashley last match – lost
      Jillian last match – lost
      Dawn Marie last match – lost

      Every diva actually except of Trish which was “Daddy’s favorite girl” (Mc Mahon), either lost their matches or got humiliated on their way out somehow.

      • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

        Chyna won her last match…it was against lita….

        • Choko

          Raekon, you should of researched a little bit. lik ART said Chyna won her last match.

          Also

          Shaniqua destroyed Torrie and Nidia but got DQed in her last match.
          Alundra won her last match in WWE.
          Nidia’s last match was the schoolgirl battle royal so I don’t know why you count that one.
          I’m not sure about Luna’s last WWE match tho’ -shy face-

        • Raekon

          @Art and Choko
          Yes you seem to be right about Chyna, I had in mind as her last match with a male(Val Venis) but it seems it was prior to judgement day in which she fought Lita and won.

          However, should she had gotten a final match before departure, it wouldn’t had been any different and she would had gotten out with a loss.
          I guess the main reason she didn’t was because she left herself.

          Thanks about the info on Alundra, I posted about what I had remembered so I didn’t do any “wiki research”.

          A DQ is a loss so it counts as a loss in Shaniquas case.

          Nidias last match prior to the battle royal was a loss.

          Lunas last singles match was vs Jaqueline in which she lost

  • Nostalgia

    Oh well :/

  • mikeyism

    Was anyone else hoping for a Bella Twins/Funkettes match? They never seemed to have any ideas for the Bellas other than have them endlessly interfere in each others’ matches. And with virtually no women’s tag division, it’s kind of pointless to keep them around.

    • Nostalgia

      I wanted that too

    • HeyChrissy

      I never thought about it,but that would have been interesting.

  • Harmella

    Anyone ever stop to think Kharma didn’t return and attack the Bellas because they want to forget Kharma’s pregnancy write-off? I mean, come on, her baby died. I think all parties just want to pretend that didn’t happen and start fresh.

    • http://ashmultimedia.wordpress.com melon2617

      That’s what I’ve thought for awhile.

    • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

      there’s that.. as well as the fact that wwe remembering anything diva wise from three weeks ago let alone a year is kinda.. rare lol.

    • redsandman99

      Can’t say I blame them if that’s the case. Kharma coming in and starting a new path of destruction would work just as well quite frankly.

    • mariah.

      That’s my guess. I support that decision if that’s the case then.

    • TheGamergirl22

      Yes I was thinking that too, and you know the someone in the crowed will mention it.
