The Bella Twins made their move last week by betraying Ronda Rousey, which led to a Raw Women’s Title opportunity for Nikki Bella at WWE Evolution. But now that Rousey’s initial, biblical anger has cooled, The Baddest Woman on the Planet came to Raw looking for an explanation. She didn’t like the one she got.
According to the Bellas, their attack of Rousey came down to reclaiming the respect they felt the champion had taken from them; to Nikki & Brie, Ronda jumped the line and was now taking credit for an evolution they started in the Divas division and bolstered with the outreach of their reality shows. Ronda admitted that she had tried to be respectful of the Bellas’ seniority, regardless of her personal feelings on the Divas Era, and initially felt that maybe they could join forces to spearhead the evolution together. After last week, she came to a different conclusion: All the twins wanted was a camera.
The insults got pretty invasive after that — so much so that Rousey successfully goaded The Bellas down from the ramp, albeit surrounded by a team of private security guards. Ronda made quick work of the hired hands, The Bellas made themselves scarce, and suddenly, Evolution became a lot more personal. The good news, if you believe Rousey’s talking points, is that the Bellas will have their cameras. But with a furious champion now staring them down, Nikki & Brie may not like what ends up on film.

Ronda Rousey vs. Nikki Bella. Or is it Nikki Bella vs. Ronda Rousey?
WWE Evolution just might become a “Bellalution” when Nikki Bella challenges Ronda Rousey for the Raw Women’s Championship.
Even though The Bella Twins earned back-to-back victories over The Riott Squad alongside The Baddest Woman on the Planet, Nikki & Brie grew tired of sharing the spotlight with The Baddest Woman on the Planet, ambushing their supposed ally after their victory on the Oct. 8 edition of Raw. With the battle lines drawn, Fearless Nikki — with Brie almost assuredly in her corner — now looks to cool off Hot Ronda at WWE’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view event.
Will the ultra-confident Nikki Bella take down The Rowdy One, or will she be forced to submit to Rousey’s notoriously deadly Armbar? Don’t miss Ronda Rousey vs. Nikki Bella or any of the action at WWE Evolution, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. ET.

The Bella Twins won two straight matches at Ronda Rousey’s side. And that, it appeared, was enough for them.
Moments after Ronda, Nikki & Brie repeated against The Riott Squad in a WWE Super Show-Down rematch — Rousey submitted Ruby Riott with the Armbar to flip the script after the Squad’s lengthy isolation of Brie Bella — The Bellas suddenly attacked the Raw Women’s Champion during their post-match celebration. Nikki threw the first punch, dropping Rousey with a forearm to the back of the head before joining in with her sister for a 2-on-1 beatdown that spilled out of and around the ring in short order. Rousey didn’t go down without a fight, brawling to her feet and forcing The Bellas to adjust, but a combination of the numbers game and the element of surprise left the titleholder relatively helpless against the two former Divas Champions.
The attack ended with Nikki and Brie standing over the downed and humiliated Rousey, completely unfazed by the torrent of boos around them. And why would they be? Their treachery paid off. Rousey was in ruins. And The Bellas looked, for all the world, like the baddest women on the planet.
Saturday at WWE Super Show-Down, Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey successfully teamed with The Bella Twins to score a decisive victory over The Riott Squad, making Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan submit simultaneously to double Armbars.
Now, Rousey prepares to defend her title at WWE’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view event, WWE Evolution. Who will step to The Baddest Woman on the Planet?
The Bellas made a very brief appearance on last week’s Total Divas episode, just talking in the car for a few minutes at the beginning.
