The Bella Twins enter a new era
Nicky Bella And Brie Bella announced on March 13 that they were officially splitting from WWE and dropping their stage names. As of now, the 39-year-old E!

“When our contract with WWE went through,” Nikki explained on the March 13 episode, “we all knew together that we just had to start this new chapter.”
Brie took a minute to honor her wrestling ring persona. “I just want to thank Brie Bella — Brie Bella, the character, the name, everything I’ve been over the last 16, 17 years,” she noted. “I’m so excited to close this chapter on Brie Bella, put down this book and open a new one – and see what Brie Garcia will do next.”
