‘I will make sure she pays’: Brie Bella speaks to WWE.com about her confrontation with Stephanie McMahon on Raw
Payback is a you-know-what, which is coincidentally what Brie Bella called Stephanie McMahon on Raw, eating a slap to the face as a result. The former Divas Champion got the last laugh, though, when she had one of WWE’s principal owners arrested and charged with aggravated battery. WWE.com caught up with Brie in our second interview with The Bella Twins concerning the incident, and learned that as good as she got Stephanie on Monday, Brie may only just be getting started.
WWE.COM: What compelled you to even be there on Raw Monday?
BRIE BELLA: I’d been watching for a couple months now, every Monday night, and seeing my sister get tortured by Stephanie McMahon. I’d been seeing a lot of the Divas on the roster beat up on her,seeing them come together and taking her out, one by one. I just felt like, “You know what? I need to come. I need to support Nikki. I need to let everyone know that she isn’t on her own, that she does have me.” I felt that if I was sitting front row, I’d give Nikki a little hope that she could do this, and that she isn’t defeated.

‘I’m prepared for the worst’: Nikki Bella talks to WWE.com about the incident between Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella
What was supposed to be a heartwarming reunion for The Bella Twins turned physical in a flash on Monday Night Raw when Stephanie McMahon entered into a verbal altercation with Brie Bella, who was seated in the crowd as a paying audience member during Nikki Bella’s match.

Later in the night, Brie got her payback by having Stephanie arrested and charged with aggravated battery, but while the former Divas Champion remains relatively bulletproof as a former employee, the future remains uncertain for Nikki Bella. In the first of two interviews with The Bella Twins, WWE.com spoke with Nikki to gauge her feelings on the incident and find out what she thinks The Authority has in store for her next week as punishment.
WWE.COM: Take us back to Monday. How did you feel having Brie at ringside for Raw?
NIKKI: I was so excited to see my sister there. Everything I’ve been going through and what The Authority has put me through, it just felt really good to know my sister was close and supporting me. It made it easier to step into battle even though it was four-versus-one. I had some confidence knowing my sister was so close. I didn’t imagine everything was going to turn out like it did.

Total Divas’ Nikki Bella: “Wrestling…you get to kick butt and look hot doing it!”
What is it you like about WWE?
“When I’m in the ring – that’s my passion. There’s nothing better in the world than wrestling and when I’m in that ring the energy I have, the connection with the fans when they’re cheering you and booing you and chanting your name, there’s nothing like that in the world… If I wasn’t with WWE I wouldn’t have seen all of the places I’ve seen. To go there and truly have a fan base, I feel like I’m living like Madonna! They make us feel so cool!”
