The reclamation of WWE’s Brie Bella

First and foremost, Brianna Danielson is a mother.

Unlike most, however, she is also a WWE superstar, a job that is not only physically grueling in nature, but also brings with it a demanding travel schedule. Despite those factors, when she was approached to make a return to the world of professional wrestling, there wasn’t any hesitation – Brie Bella was ready to make a return to the ring.

“I’ve been sitting back as a fan of WWE watching these women do incredible things, making history, breaking barriers and I sat at home wanting to be a part of it,” Bella told Yahoo Sports. “When this opportunity came up, I just said yes without thinking.”

Bella, who alongside her sister Nikki form the Bella Twins team, initially stepped away from WWE after WrestleMania 32 in 2016. At the time, Bella decided to put her family first – she is married to WWE star Daniel Bryan (real name: Bryan Danielson) – leaving right as the company’s “Women’s Evolution” was about to kick into high gear.

Brie Bella def. Maryse by disqualification

Brie Bella and Maryse took center stage just days before they teamed up with their husbands Daniel Bryan and The Miz in Mixed Tag Team action at the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event this Sunday.

Set to compete in her first singles match in seven years, Maryse seemed hesitant to engage with Brie, constantly stalling and bailing from the squared circle. Finally, Brie grabbed the microphone, called Miz’s Mrs. a coward and goaded her to get into the ring.

However, The A-Lister (who was at ringside, along with Bryan) took great exception to Brie calling his wife a coward. An irate Miz ranted that The “Yes!” Couple would have to wait until the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event to see them again. Miz & Maryse began to take off, but Brie ran down Maryse and brought her back to the ring.

After each Superstar landed a few haymakers, Brie trapped Maryse in the “Yes!” Lock, but Miz grabbed Brie’s leg and yanked her out of the ring to give Bella the disqualification win. The “Yes!” Man immediately pounced on his rival and started raining fists on The A-Lister. With The Beard continuing to hammer away, Miz tossed Bryan out of the ring right onto an unsuspecting Brie outside.

The chaos would continue with Maryse and Brie brawling once again, and Brie soon claimed the upper hand. Left alone with a furious Bryan and Brie, Miz caught another right hand from Brie Mode before Bryan clotheslined him out of the ring… and this was just a small taste of what’s to come on Sunday.

Nikki Bella def. Ruby Riott

Nikki wins, no riot(t). Following a petty act of locker-room vandalism, Nikki Bella knocked off Ruby Riott in a singles victory that built nicely upon The Bella Twins’ collective win over Ruby’s two henchwomen, Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan.

That Nikki used her powerhouse style to get past Ruby’s wild brawling would be impressive enough. But given that The Riott Squad was lurking at ringside, the former Divas Champion kept having to turn her attention to turn away would-be interlopers. She dispatched of Sarah Logan quite quickly, but Liv Morgan took a little help to get rid of: After Nikki thwarted the Riott Kick and got Ruby in position for the Rack Attack 2.0, Liv rushed the ring and it took an assist from Brie Bella to clear the way for Nikki’s formidable signature move.

So Nikki gets the win and Brie turns away one devious blonde en route to a confrontation with another. Yep. The Bellas are back.
