The Bella Twins recall their issues prior to their WWE debut
As we know The Bella Twins arrived on the scene back in 2008 but that wasn’t as smooth as anyone would expect it to be. On the A&E Biography: WWE legends edition based on the twin sisters, they revealed their struggles about the locker room they were victim of before making their television debut. They revealed that back in the day there used to be a snatch fest between the women backstage inorder to make the cut on camera as there used to be very fewer women segments back in the day on WWE programming.
“I was very nervous to go to TV. I just had a lot of pressure. We were entering a whole new group of women, and dealing with TV time and money… If you look at television, there’s probably 10 different segments, maybe 12. But there’s only one for women. And that’s a lot of women fighting for a spot,” said Brie.
Brie Bella also recalled about the problematic stuff their colleagues used to have especially with their outfits calling their pants as “Bell bottoms” and insisting them not to wear that black and red combination as some other already had that colour combination and in amidst of that The Bella Twins were worried about their wardrobe as they had to debut moments later on.
“And then we put on our outfits and then we were told, ‘Oh, it looks like your pants look like bell bottoms, some other girl wears bell bottoms.’ We’re like oh my gosh. ‘Oh, black and red? Well someone else wears black and red, you guys can’t wear that.’ And Nicole and I just looked at each other and we’re like, we were supposed to debut tonight, what are we going to do?”
