Brie Bella: “We didn’t watch wrestling growing up”

Apr 7, 2022 - by James Walsh

During a recent appearance on the This Is Paris podcast, WWE Hall of Famers The Bella Twins (Nikki & Brie Bella) spoke to Paris Hilton on how they discovered wrestling while working at Hooters. Below are some highlights (via

Brie on how she and Nikki first became interested in wrestling: “It was crazy because WWE was on a search for female wrestlers and I saw that. We didn’t watch wrestling growing up. My sister and I worked at Hooters right when we turned 18, we were like, we need to make some money and Hooters is the spot. We became Hooter girls and they showed the WWE pay per views once a month and it would be like sold out. and we’d be sitting there watching. I was really impressed by the way wrestling would tell a story with athletics.”

Brie on realizing WWE was their calling: “They would be physical but then these larger-than-life characters. When I saw a couple of years later that they were on the search, I was like, ‘Nicole this is for us. We were soccer players growing up, we always thought we were the Spice Girls and would lip-sync for all our family’s boxing parties. We love entertainment and athletics. I think WWE is our calling.’ It’s crazy to think that, and sure enough we went there and they weren’t looking for twins and they never had twins.”

    Of course they didn’t watch wrestling. They just became famous because they spread their legs for some top stars. They are untalented ring rats.
    It doesn’t surprise me that the Bella ring rats worked for Hooters as Hooters girls. It fits them…

    So they didn’t watch wrestling growing up. Neither did Sting or Brock Lesnar. I even read that Tazz, AJ Styles and Charlotte Flair didn’t even watch it.

    And not to defend them, but these untalented ring rats are doing pretty well for themselves.

    Hey TrollBuster… there’s nothing wrong with Hooters! If for some reason you don’t like the place, then just don’t go there. Says a lot about you lol.
