“This is what’s hard for Nikki and I,” Brie Bella said. “When we left, all of a sudden the WWE women’s tag titles came, and we’re like, ‘Wait a sec, that’s for The Bella Twins.’ We’ve been dying to have tag titles. So, she and I feel like we have one more run in us, so we really want to go for those titles.”

They recently teased a return when they ‘volunteered’ to stop current WWE Women’s tag team Champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler on Twitter.
