Over the years the cover of ‘Muscle & Fitness’ has been graced by the likes of The Rock, Chris Hemsworth, Batista, 5O Cent, and more. However, due to the existence of ‘Muscle & Fitness Hers’, the last time we saw a female athlete cover the regular magazine was 20 years ago. But now, thanks to the likes of WWE Superstars Nikki and Brie Bella, that is all about to change.
Last night, Total Bellas star Nikki Bella uploaded an Instagram photo with the caption that said the following:
“Treating myself after an amazing cover shoot with @muscle_and_fitness Couldn’t be more honored to grace their cover! @thebriebella and I are the first female athletes in 20 years to grace it! Just so beyond honored and grateful! Honestly words couldn’t even describe our excitement and gratefulness today! Can’t wait for you all to see it! ??? Love you #BellaArmy so grateful for you all!”
Thanks to the success of Nikki and Brie’s in-ring work as well as their time on Total Divas and their recent TCA win, it seems that their mainstream appeal is growing day by day.
Though no in-ring return date has been set for either woman, you can catch them on television on October 5th, when the Total Bellas series premiere airs at 8om ET/PT on the E Network!
