Nicole and Brie The Bella Twins

Guest Author - Vance Rowe

Brianna and Nicole Garcia, now known as the Bella Twins, currently wrestle for the Smack Down brand of the WWE. They changed their name to Bella because it is an Italian word for “beautiful” and they truly fit that bill. Born in 1983 of Mexican and Italian descent, the Bella twins have taken the modeling world by storm and were the most searched women on the internet in November 2008. In 2006, they were part of the Diva search that year and were eliminated before reaching the final eight but the WWE saw something in them and signed them to a developmental deal in 2007 and trained at the WWE’s proving grounds in Florida Championship Wrestling. They were trained by the “Doctor of Desire”, Dr. Tom Prichard, whose most recent claim to fame in the WWE was that of Body Donna Zip, then under the management auspices of Tammy Sytch.

The Bella Twins practice yoga, are vegetarians and work very hard to keep their figures the way they are. They also enjoy playing soccer and have done a lot of modeling. Their first national spotlight was on the Fox reality show, Meet My Folks and their careers took off from there. They were hired by Budweiser to be the World Cup Twins and were even photographed while holding the World Cup; they have appeared in many international magazines and even entered the 2006 "International Body Doubles Twins Search”.

When the twins first made their appearance on the Smack Down brand, it was Brie who was wrestling and Nicole was hiding under the ring. There was no storyline involving the twins at the same time yet so Brie was just a singles’ wrestler. Brie was declared the winner over Victoria in her first match, but toward the end of the match, Brie disappeared under the ring and a fresh Nikki Bella came out and got the victory. They pulled this switch for several weeks and it was also used in a comedy bit in the back on one show. Primo Colon was hitting on Brie in one segment and the two were talking and seemed to be hitting it off. Later on Primo saw Nikki and thought it was Brie and when he started hitting on her again, she acted like she never saw Primo at all that night. Primo and Carlito were very confused.

Their twin hiding gimmick was exposed on Smack Down when Brie was wrestling Victoria and got the victory. Natalya Neidhart, who was in FCW with the Bella twins, chased Brie under the ring along with Victoria. Natalya and Victoria were shocked to see there were twins under there. The twins then attacked the two heel divas and celebrated afterward. This also marked the first time that there were identical twin wrestlers in the WWE. I recently have had the pleasure to exclusively interview the Bella twins and you will find a link to that interview at the end of this article. I hope, as a wrestling fan, that the Bella Twins have a long and prosperous career with the WWE and will be interesting to see what happens if one of them gets a chance to go for the Divas title, currently held by Michelle McCool.
