‘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. The confrontation quickly escalated and Stephanie slapped Brie as a result, moments before feeding Nikki to a four-Diva coalition assembled with the sole purpose of taking the “Total Divas” star out.
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.

Alicia Fox, Eva Marie, Cameron & Rosa Mendes def. Nikki Bella
Having bought a ticket to Raw, Brie Bella was there to support her sister Nikki in person and spirit. But without her twin in the ring beside her, the magic was in short supply for the Fearless Diva when Stephanie McMahon organized a four-on-one gang-up of the former Divas Champion. Brie, however, couldn’t help herself, and jaw-jacked her way into a physical confrontation with Stephanie that saw her slapped and banned from ringside all before the match even started. Things only went downhill for Nikki when it did start; Stephanie’s fearsome foursome feasted upon the hapless Nikki, with Alicia herself doing the honors by executing a scissor kick to the Bella’s back.
Stephanie McMahon was arrested following Flo Rida’s performance
What started as an evening of delight quickly turned sour for Stephanie McMahon, who introduced hip-hop superstar Flo Rida only to find herself hauled out of the building in handcuffs when all was said and done. Having conclude some unfinished business with Heath Slater, Flo took to the stage for a medley of “Good Feeling,” “Wild Ones” and “Let the Good Times Roll” before Stephanie was approached by two officers — called by none other than Brie Bella — arrested, escorted out of the building and later charged with aggravated battery despite her persistent, vehement protests. And, cue the “Yes!” chants.

It’s worth noting that speculation ran rampant as to whether Stephanie McMahon might have had something to do with the incident, as further retribution for Nikki’s sister Brie slapping her at WWE Payback.

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!”
