The Bella Twins        

Stars of E! Network's "Total Divas"

The twins are a professional wrestling tag team under the ring names Brie Bella and Nikki Bella respectively, collectively referred to as The Bella Twins. They work for WWE on the Raw brand.

Before being promoted to the main WWE roster, The Bella Twins wrestled with Florida Championship Wrestling, where they were trained by Tom Prichard, and mainly competed in tag team competition. Brie made her debut on SmackDown in August 2008; she debuted first, and as part of her in-ring persona, would disappear under the ring during matches, emerging revived. Eventually, however, it was discovered she was switching places with her twin, Nikki, under the ring in order to gain an advantage.

They then competed in tag team matches. Beginning in November 2008, an angle was written in which The Bella Twins developed an on-screen relationship with The Colóns (Carlito and Primo). They were later involved in storyline romances with John Morrison and The Miz in early 2009 and Daniel Bryan in 2010.

In April 2011, Brie won the WWE Divas Championship and Nikki won it a year later in April 2012. Shortly afterward, they departed WWE, but returned in March 2013.

Brianna and Nicole Garcia-Colace were raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, and are of Mexican and Italian descent.

They played soccer up until college, when they started modeling, acting, and doing promotional work.They made their first national TV appearance on the Fox reality show Meet My Folks.

Following this appearance, the Garcia twins were hired to be the World Cup Twins for Budweiser and were photographed holding the World Cup trophy.

They then participated in the 2006 "International Body Doubles twins search".

They participated in the 2006 WWE Diva Search but did not make the cut

hey were signed to developmental contracts by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in June 2007 and assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), WWE's developmental territory, in Tampa, Florida.

On September 15, 2007 the twins debuted in FCW, dubbed The Bella Twins, by defeating Nattie Neidhart and Krissy Vaine with Victoria Crawford as the special guest referee.

The duo quickly started a scripted rivalry with Neidhart and Crawford, and had a series of matches against them throughout October 2007. As a part of their on-screen personas, they switched places behind the referee's back if one of them was hurt.

They also occasionally competed in mixed tag team matches, teaming with male wrestlers including Kofi Kingston and Robert Anthony. They also made some non-wrestling appearances on Heath Miller's "Happy Hour" promo segment.

Starting in December 2007, they began managing Derrick Linkin, but this storyline was cut short when Linkin was released in January 2008. They then resumed their feud with Neidhart and Crawford, wrestling them throughout much of 2008.

On the August 29, 2008 episode of SmackDown, Brianna debuted as Brie Bella and defeated Victoria.

She quickly began a scripted rivalry with Victoria and Victoria's accomplice, Nattie Neidhart, who was now using the ring name Natalya, and had a series of matches against them.

In each match Brie would roll out of the ring and go underneath it, emerging and appearing revived, and then win the match.

On the October 31 episode when Brie went under the ring Victoria grabbed her legs, but a second pair of legs kicked her off, implying that a second person was under the ring.

The following week on SmackDown, Brie picked up a win against Victoria and then ran under the ring to escape Natalya and Victoria, but Victoria and Natalya both reached for Brie under the ring, resulting in both Nicole and Brie being pulled out. The twins then attacked them and celebrated afterward.
