As one-half of the dazzling Bella Twins, Brie debuted on SmackDown in 2008, defeating her first opponent, Victoria, by way of “Twin Magic” — a move in which she and her identical sister, Nikki, secretly switched places during matches. In 2011, the sneaky tactic helped Brie defeat Eve and win her first Divas Championship.
Every bit as cunning as she is cute, this half-Mexican, half-Italian beauty appeared on ECW, WWE NXT, and both SmackDown and Raw, where she teamed up with her doppelgänger in both love and war.
Still, no matter how many Superstar hearts she has broken in WWE, Brie is always at her best when she’s breaking down Divas in the ring. It seemed as though she and her sister would leave WWE after departing in 2012, but the scheming duo returned in spring 2013, ready to unleash a new wave of “Twin Magic” on anyone who stands in their way.
Outside the ring, Nikki & Brie have thrived as the center pieces of the hit E! reality show “Total Divas,” alongside current castmates Cameron, Paige, Natalya, Eva Marie, Rosa Mendes and Alicia Fox.
Following a brief sisterly rivalry that nearly tore The Bella Twins apart, Nikki & Brie were back on the same page at Survivor Series. There, Brie shocked the entire WWE Universe, kissing AJ Lee as the match began allowing Nikki to take down the Divas Champion and net the butterfly for the second time. After Nikki turned back AJ yet again at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs ... and Stairs, The Bella Twins faced a formidable threat in Paige. After Nikki defended her Divas Title against Paige at WWE Fastlane, The Bella Twins continued to dominate The Diva of Tomorrow, robbing Paige of a championship victory on the March 2 Raw when Brie interfered and got Nikki disqualified. After the bell, when The Bella Twins double-teamed Paige, AJ Lee made a surprise return to even the odds and stand alongside her former nemesis. After Nikki & Brie fell to AJ & Paige on The Grandest Stage of Them All, several Divas have been hot on their heels in pursuit of the Divas Title, including Natalya, Naomi and the ever-persistent Paige. Will one of these women emerge as Nikki’s new No. 1 contender in Monday’s Divas Battle Royal?
Whatever happens next, “Brie Mode” will surely be in full effect
