Despite Brie Bella’s announcement that she’d be retiring from in-ring competition with WWE earlier this month (technically taped back in October) and her sister Nikki following that up with a similar announcement a few weeks later, the “retired” and podcasting Bella Twins are already teasing WWE comebacks.
On the very first episode of their new show — with a transcription h/t to Fightful — Los Bellas explained that WWE introducing Women’s Tag Team Championships might immediately be enough to undo both retirements.
“Nicole and I did tell everyone that we are stepping away from the ring, which is true, we are. But we also said that before the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles came into place … This is the thing, for years we were begging for the Women’s Tag Team Titles. Begging. We never thought it could truly be a reality. The fact that it is now, makes it extremely tempting for us to go back and fight for them because we’re really the longest reigning, most authentic tag team.”
“Overall, we are the only real, true blood, tag team,” added Nikki, causing us to note the old chestnut that family is more than blood; it’s the people you love and feel at home with.
Brie posted a followup video on Wednesday, explaining her feelings about how and when she’d make a return.
“It’s very tempting, and I’m not going to say, hey, I’m coming out of retirement now, I just might show up one day and take the titles off someone. Who knows? I will say we worked so hard in WWE and the one thing Nikki and I always always wanted were the tag titles, and they’re here, so, I don’t know what that means.”
As Terry Funk and Mick Foley taught us long ago, pro wrestling retirements are only temporary, so don’t be surprised if the Bella Twins show back up sooner rather than later. After all, they’re already making an appearance at WrestleMania Axxess.
