NIKKI & BRIE GARCIA FKA THE BELLA TWINS
WWE LEGENDS, TOTAL DIVAS, TOTAL BELLAS
The Bella Twins were a professional wrestling tag team that performed in WWE and consisted of identical twin sisters Brie Bella and Nikki Bella. Each of the Bella Twins are former WWE Divas Champions. Brie was the first twin in WWE to win the title, while Nikki won it twice with her second reign of 301 days being the longest reign for the now defunct title.
Both sisters signed with WWE in 2007 and were assigned to the developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling. Brie Bella was called up to the main roster in 2008. In early appearances, she surreptitiously switched places with her sister to win her matches. After some weeks, Nikki Bella was revealed as her twin. During the next few years, they worked together as a team, as well as individually. Each sister won the WWE Divas Championship once before they were released in 2012. The Bella Twins made their return in 2013 and were featured in the reality show Total Divas before getting their own spin-off, Total Bellas. They were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2021 as a team. The twins would only make occasional appearances in WWE in their last few years, but acted as ambassadors for the company until their contracts expired in 2023. Following this, they retired the “Bella” name and reintroduced themselves as The Garcia Twins as “Garcia” was their maiden name.
In November 2015, Nikki was ranked No. 1 in Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s Female 50. In 2015, Nikki also won a WWE Slammy Award for Diva of The Year.
