#5 Wanted to be a football player
Wrestling wasn’t actually the first love of Nikki Bella. She used to fancy herself as quite the football player in her teenage days. And it’s not just that she was passionate about it, she was legitimately gifted on the pitch, too. When playing for the girl's football team at Chapparal High in Arizona, she was honoured with the MVP award in her first year.
News of her talent spread like wildfire across the state and she was eventually offered a sports scholarship at Arizona State University because of her ability. However, a leg injury would shatter her dreams and lead to the offer being revoked. Brie Bella also played football with her as a child but she quickly grew bored of the sport while Nikki chased the dream further.
