Just a couple of weeks ago, The Bella Twins were on Access Hollywood where they shared their potential desire of an in-ring return. One big thing that escaped the twins in WWE was capturing the Women’s Tag Team Titles. Nikki Bella‘s fiancé Artem Chigvintsev recently spoke to US Magazine where he fueled the hope of a Bella Twin comeback.
He said, “She’s (Nikki’s) been having talks about coming back and doing something together with Brie. They both have kids, and I feel like they still have this ‘unclosed’ chapter with wrestling. I would not be surprised.”
This led to further speculation on their return. The Bella Twins recently took to a video on YouTube where they clarified that Chigvintsev was referring to them talking amongst each other about a return, not WWE directly.
“We do really want to make a return,” Brie said. “The timeline of it — we don’t know when.”
Nikki clarified that they are not “in talks” with WWE at the moment, just with each other. This doesn’t mean that it won’t happen, but it hasn’t been discussed with the company on when or how.
The last time the twins were in the ring and returned for a comeback they had a lot of outside factors going on in their lives. Brie had recently had her first child and they both had several businesses they were actively in charge of.
“A couple of mistakes I did with Birdie on a couple of my comebacks is Birdie was so little — you’re sleep deprived, you’re trying to train, you’re trying to be a mom, so it can be really hard,” Brie stated. “I’d like to wait until the boys are like two years old, or something like that. I see us making a comeback in a couple of years, or maybe it’s next year, I don’t know, but it’s not next month!”
Nikki adds, “It would have to be our main focus because even when we came back for Evolution, we were running three companies, we were filming a reality TV show, we had so much on our plate — Brie had Birdie — and we just said the comeback didn’t get its full attention from us that we wanted it to have,” Nikki recalled. “So, we’re gonna make sure on that, too.”
With the timing not being right and Nikki’s health concerns previously, a chase for the tag titles was not in the picture. They aren’t ruling out a return now but clearly are waiting for the right time.
