Nikki and Brie, formerly known as The Bella Twins, officially left WWE on March 15. Earlier in the day, they removed “Bella” from their social media handles and teased that they were starting a new chapter. The duo subsequently confirmed their departure from the company.
Nikki then went live on Instagram on March 16, and when one fan asked her whether she and Brie will be going to AEW, she stated that they would not be doing so. Nikki also noted that she and Brie previously went to AEW Revolution and visited backstage because she wanted her son, Matteo, to see his uncle Bryan Danielson in action.
“That’s the same. There’s no hard feelings,” Nikki said. “I get because of everything in the past, especially the past maybe six months, it seems that way. We’re not going to AEW. I’ve seen a lot of that, because we are just there visiting Renee and Paige. I was like, I haven’t had an opportunity to take Matteo backstage to a wrestling event, and when he knew uncle Bryan was gonna be there, Matteo loves his uncle Bryan. Brie and I are like, we have to go see Bryan. The kids had so much fun.” [H/t Fightful for the transcription]
