Nikki and Brie clearly made a splash in the WWE. The following year they rocked peach-colored bodycon dresses that showed every inch of their amazing physiques. Fitness is a huge part of both their lives nowadays, but it obviously has been since the beginning of their careers.
“Nikki and I realized this year that it is time to say goodbye to Total Divas,” Brie expressed during their podcast on April 3. Nikki echoed, “Brie and I have been with the franchise from the beginning and have literally put out hearts and souls and our lives on TV. [We wanted to] help make it into a big franchise, to help make it a success, to truly change peoples minds about women in wrestling and how much women in the wrestling industry do in and out of the ring.”

They may be cute and fun but don’t mess with these ladies! They continually proved their strength and athleticism in the ring. This photo is from the two competing during Wrestlemania XXX at the Mercedes-Benz Super Dome in New Orleans.
Even though Brie is now a mom, she made a quick comeback before she left the WWE for good. However, she confessed that people commented on how different her body was compared to years past. “The hardest thing for me was kind of when Birdie was born was kind of being like, ‘OK, I’m a mom now,’ but I didn’t want to lose the old Brie, and I really did lose my identity,” she admitted on “The Bellas Podcast” on July 24. “I ended up making a comeback because I missed the old Brie and I failed so bad at it in front of the world … I got bullied online for it — people would say, ‘Motherhood, look at what it’s done to her [body]!'”

Nikki and Brie have gone through a lot during their 15-year-long stint in the wrestling world and seem to never get sick of spending time with each other — they even currently host “The Bellas Podcast” together. It must be a twin thing.

Um, we’re obsessed with Brie’s chopped hair. The two presented at the Teen Choice Awards and managed to put actor Matthew Daddario in a headlock during their time on stage.

Same day, different look. Before hitting the stage, they opted for two ultra-feminine white ensembles.
Brie and Nikki got a ton of exposure this year. They seemingly popped up all over the place and their schedules must’ve been jam-packed. It’s no wonder why they’re now reality A-listers.

Dang! They showed some serious muscles during WWE’s First-Ever Emmy “For Your Consideration” event. It was in July 2018 that Nikki and her longtime boyfriend-turned-fiancé, John Cena, officially broke up. However, you wouldn’t guess by the way she looks that she was going through any personal turmoil.
One year after their split, Nikki seemed to be an amazing place. “Nothing is better than when you make a hard decision, contemplate it, and finally realize it was for the best,” she tweeted on April 22. “I woke up this morning smiling, said thank you God and universe out loud. Never have done that. Feels so good! So happy.”

Glam for a good cause! They walked the runway at the 115th Annual Heart Truth Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection 2019 in February and showed a little ~love~ while doing so. Remember how we said red was their color? Years later, they were still working it.

Nikki took a walk on the wild side with this super sexy look while Brie gave a more bohemian vibe. This year, they officially announced that they retired from the WWE. While fans were bummed, their health comes first.
“I really wanted to go back and fight for the tag titles,” Nikki admitted during a The Tonight Show on June 19. “I’ve had my neck issues, and after neck surgery, it hasn’t been OK. I [felt] like I needed to get that checkup before we went back for the tag titles. Then it came back that I herniated the disc above where I had surgery, I have all this inflammation around the metal, and then I have a cyst on my brain. So they were like, ‘You’re done, no more, you’re out.'”
