After making quite a name for themselves in the modelling industry, the twin sisters participated in the 2006 WWE Diva Search. The two failed to land themselves a contract, but were incidentally signed up with the WWE on developmental contracts. Before making their main roster debut, both the sisters had a stint at the Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).
Brie Bella WWE
Brianna made her main roster debut alongside her twin sister on August 2009 in SmackDown, having been assigned the ring name Brie Bella. WWE had her feud with Natalya and Victoria in their initial days. They developed a scripted on-screen relationship with The Colons, while also being wooed by Jim Morrison and The Miz. This led to six person intergender tag team match, in which Brie won the first match but lost the second match to her sister.
The twins won their Divas Championship after Brie defeated Eve Torres, but went on to lose the title to Kelly Kelly after successfully defending her title once against the latter. They had a year off from WWE after they were reportedly fired by Executive Administrator Eve Torres, and appeared independent wrestling promotions. They were resigned a year later by the company.
In 2013, she got engaged to Daniel Bryan in real life which led to WWE involving her in the dispute between Stephanie McMahon and her fiance. In 2016, she took an extended hiatus from WWE citing family reasons. After sporadic appearances in 2018, Brie announced that she was permanently retiring from professional wrestling.
In September 2013, she revealed her engagement to fellow professional wrestler Daniel Bryan. The couple married on April 11, 2014. Together they have a daughter by the name of Birdie Joe Danielson.
