Nikki Bella took to Instagram to deliver a message of support and solidarity to the multiple women released from WWE over the past few months.
The WWE Hall of Famer posted the message along with pictures of Lana, Ruby Riott, The IIconics, Mickie James and Chelsea Green.
The outpouring of support for those no longer with WWE has been immense and proves just how loved they were both by the fans and their peers. The run of firings shook the wrestling world, and Bella echoed that sentiment in her post.
Nikki Bella’s message reads;
I have been shocked to say the least about some of the releases lately at WWE. Wanted to write a thank you post to the women that have given their everything to the wrestling industry. Mind, body, soul and time. I was so honored to share the ring with some of you and the ones I hadn’t I was so looking forward to one day sharing it. @rubyriottwwe you were one of my favorite matches, you are such a selfless, kind, and incredibly talented woman. @themickiejames you are an icon. I always hoped to have had a badass storyline with you. I know we could have created magic. @jessicamckay and @cassielee goodness our future wrote itself, @thebriebella and I were dreaming of fighting for the tag titles against the both of you. You two were a magic duo!
✨ @thelanawwe you shined in and out of that ring, loved our @totaldivas days and traveling the world together. So many amazing laughs and memories! And @chelseaagreen was super excited to see what you were going to bring! Thank you all for the entertainment and the memories! I know the future is so bright for you all! Can’t wait to follow you all wherever you may go.🤍🦄⭐️ #womenswrestling
Nikki Bella is a former two-time Divas Champion holding the title for a record-breaking and history-making three-hundred plus days. She lost the championship to Charlotte Flair at Night of Champions in 2015 before taking time off due to a neck injury.
The injury would ultimately end her in-ring career, and she retired from action in 2019. There were rumours that the Bella Twins were returning to feud with the IIconics after WrestleMania 35. The two teams were to clash over the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Bella confirmed the rumours on her podcast and revealed that her injuries halted the plans.
More recently the Bella Twins celebrated becoming mothers and were inducted into this year’s WWE Hall of Fame.
