Refinery29.com recently interviewed The Bella Twins regarding Ronda Rousey, the upcoming WWE Evolution pay-per-view and more. Check out interview highlights below.
“[Evolution] represents the barriers that we’ve broken together as women,” Nikki says. “It’s the perfect time to have a comeback.” Brie agrees, adding that they’ve spent their decade-plus career watching these changes gradually unfold: Women in the company have gone from “Divas” to “Superstars,” and “bra and panty” matches have been replaced with “iron woman” events. This is the Bellas’ opportunity to prove just how far the women’s division has come," Brie says.
Match With Rousey:
“I literally feel as if I’m training for the Olympics.” “I need to move differently. I need to work differently.” It makes sense that, as the platform widens for female competitors, the stakes will get higher — and meeting this ever-rising bar is one of the reasons why Nikki decided to come back to the WWE. “I’m ready to give my absolute best performance at Evolution,” she says.
“I consider myself very lucky that, not only do I have a twin sister, but I get to work with her,” Nikki says. “She supports me the most. She gives me the honest truth.” “She nailed it,” Brie says.
