Humble Beginnings, Nikki Bella’s history
Nikki Bella relocated from San Diego to Los Angeles in pursuit of a career in the entertainment industry.
Nikki Bella initiated her career in the world of entertainment, not only through modeling, but also by working as a promoter & host among other roles.
Nikki Bella also worked as a waitress at the Mondrian Hotel. Bella is said to have extensively searched for an agent during her waitressing days, so as to further her Hollywood aspirations.
Nikki Bella worked as a model, with her first national television appearance coming on the FOX reality show Meet My Folks. Nikki & Brie Bella then served as the World Cup Twins for Budweiser in the mid-2000s.
Nikki & Brie Bella started off in the WWE’s then-developmental territory FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling), in 2007.
The Bella Twins made their WWE main roster debut on the August 29th, 2008 episode of SmackDown. On the April 23rd, 2012 edition of RAW, Nikki Bella defeated Beth Phoenix to win the WWE Divas Championship for the first time.
Independent Wrestling Career
The Bella Twins returned to the indie professional wrestling circuit, the following month, wrestling at a Northeast Wrestling show in Newburgh, New York.
Nikki & Brie Bella returned to the WWE on the March 11th, 2013 episode of RAW.
Nikki Bella defeated AJ Lee at Survivor Series on November 23rd, 2014, to win the WWE Divas Championship for the second time. Nikki Bella went on to become the longest-reigning WWE Divas Champion—holding the title for 301 days—before losing it to Charlotte Flair at Night of Champions on September 20th, 2015.
WrestleMania 33 and part-time status
After suffering neck injury issues that caused her to refrain from in-ring competition through late-2015 and early-2016, Nikki Bella returned at SummerSlam on August 21st, 2016.
Nikki Bella teamed up with John Cena, as they defeated Maryse & The Miz at WrestleMania 33 on April 2nd, 2017. Nikki Bella & John Cena got engaged in the ring after their WrestleMania victory.
Following the event, Nikki Bella revealed that she’d be stepping away from in-ring competition for some time, so as to deal with nagging neck issues. She returned at RAW 25 in January of 2018, and also competed in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble at the Royal Rumble PPV on January 28th, 2018.
Nikki Bella notably eliminated her sister Brie, before being eliminated by Asuka. Following the Royal Rumble event, several reports suggested that the WWE plans on putting forth a feud between Nikki Bella and her sister Brie Bella. Additionally, the vast majority of professional wrestling experts believed that the rivalry would be a key storyline on the WWE-based E! reality show Total Divas.
Nevertheless, the Nikki Bella vs. Brie Bella feud is yet to come to fruition in 2018. The Bella Twins have previously feuded with one another on WWE television programming, however, with both Superstars now performing sporadically for the promotion, the possibility of a feud between the duo is said to be low.
In multiple interviews following her appearance at the 2018 Royal Rumble, Nikki Bella has asserted that despite having assumed a part-time status as an in-ring performer in the WWE, she plans to return to the ring soon and compete in 2018.
