The WWE has worked hard to legitimize women’s wrestling with their self-named Evolution but the Bella Twins seem intent on setting it back a decade.
Brie and Nikki Bella attended the 2017 People’s Choice Awards on Sunday night and issued a challenge — although one that was probably never intended to be taken seriously.
E Online reported that Nikki Bella was asked who they dreamed of wrestling in a WWE ring and her answer was unexpected.
“I honestly think what would be really good is the Kardashians! Sisters versus sisters!” Nikki said.
If that wasn’t enough, Brie Bella chimed in as they spoke to Giuliana Rancic.
“The Kardashians versus the Bella twins. I think that’s a good match,” Brie said.
The Bella Twins recently made their return to the WWE following Brie giving birth to her and Daniel Bryan’s daughter and Nikki’s relationship with John Cena shattering.

They were never out of the public eye, however, as they continued to star in Total Divas and Total Bellas to make sure that the WWE Universe never forgot they existed.
Then, Nikki Bella came back and worked the main event at WWE Evolution in a match against Ronda Rousey. That match was highlighted over the superior title match between Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch.
If the Kardashians took this seriously, which they won’t, it would probably overshadow the real athletes in the women’s division as well.
At the 2018 People’s Choice Awards, Keeping Up with the Kardashians won the Reality Show of 2018 award. As for Nikki Bella, she lost the Competition Contestant of 2018 to American Idol’s Maddie Poppe and lost the Reality TV Star of 2018 to none other than Khloe Kardashian.
