On The Nikki & Brie Show, they officially confirmed their departure from WWE as well.
Below is what AEW wrestler Saraya (fka Paige in WWE) tweeted about it:
“Welcome to freedom ladies, I know this next chapter is gonna be even bigger! ❤️”
Nikki & Brie were advertised to appear at RAW XXX in January, but they didn’t appear.
It looks like they had a falling out with WWE, because they went LIVE on Instagram and expressed their displeasure about how WWE didn’t acknowledge the women’s revolution during RAW XXX, especially talent like Mercedes Mone (Sasha Banks) and Saraya (Paige).
The Bella Twins were interviewed on The Tamron Hall Show, where they discussed this situation again.
Below is what they said:
“When you have a 3-hour show and it’s male-dominated and women aren’t being honored pretty much at all, you just sit back and you’re like why aren’t we being appreciated? Why don’t you even have a video package showcasing what these incredible women have done?
It made me upset for all of the women because I know that feeling of walking out to the ring where you walk out and put your body on the line, you give it your all just to entertain your fans and the TV viewers. You just come back and you want to feel appreciated for that.
Some of us have had career-ending injuries. We shouldn’t go away. I feel if a wrestler leaves the company, or they are no longer there, it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be remembered.
I wish and I hope that maybe that will be more in the future and we still have a way to go, that women will be appreciated for what they do.”
“What the women are doing today at WWE is amazing. The present-day women wrestlers are doing incredible things but it took so many women from the past to pave that road and it’s okay to say thank you and recognize that.
The Bella Twins don’t have to be at RAW 30. It’s all the other women and we can give you a whole long list, that should have been there.”
