The Bella Twins’ book Incomparable came out this week, and the revelations it contains are still finding their way to the wrestling internet. The memoir features separate sections alternating between Nikki and Brie telling the stories of their lives and careers, and the things they’ve learned along the way.
In one section that was featured on E Online, Nikki talks about their final return to WWE, which was in 2018 when Ronda Rousey also arrived in the company. As you may remember, Nikki, Brie, and Asuka were the final three in the Women’s Royal Rumble Match, with Asuka finally eliminating Nikki to win, but then Ronda Rousey immediately appeared after the match, becoming the only thing anyone could talk about.
As Nikki says in the book, she disliked WWE debuting Rousey in this way, because it overshadowed the first women’s Rumble and especially the many female stars who had come out of retirement just to appear in it:
It was nothing against Ronda — it is thrilling that she is at WWE — but it was a bit of a slap in the face to all the historic women wrestlers who had come out for the match, the main event, only to have the moment upstaged by the Ronda announcement. It just didn’t need to happen like that.
Nikki goes on to talk about facing Ronda in the main event of WWE Evolution, the first and to date only all-women WWE PPV, saying, “That night was career-justifying. That night was worth breaking my neck for.”
