While appearing as a guest on WWE Backstage, Charlotte Flair was asked to look back at the five year anniversary of #GiveDivasAChance, along with Paige. Most notably, Renee Young immediately credits AJ Lee and her pipebombshell, along with the Bella Twins, for getting the ball rolling for the revolution. Paige piggy backs to say AJ Lee was the first person to really make people take notice of the division, namely with her mic work (it's AJ who, in her opinion, is the best woman ever on the mic). Charlotte and Paige then both talk about how while they were in NXT, they saw the women on main roster not getting time to wrestle, so they strived to change that. Charlotte then continues off of Paige's point about AJ Lee to say that the women before AJ definitely had the talent and weren't really given the opportunity to show it, but it was AJ who started the trend of being a distinct, unique character, which snowballed into what was seen on NXT; from that point forward the women weren't just groups of women thrown together. Then from there, every opportunity the girls were given, they just continued to deliver.
Paige then goes on to talk about the pressure to live up to the hype following #GiveDivasAChance despite remaining cynical about being given opportunities, but says the Horsewomen came up and kept stealing the show, which elevated the women around them's in ring performance, namely the Bella Twins. Charlotte agrees and says the women all made each other better.
Nikki Bella Family Member Calls Her Not Marrying John Cena “A Blessing”
Nikki Bella’s family is relieved that she never got married to pro wrestler John Cena, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned.
The 36-year-old’s tumultuous split from John, 42, played out in front of the world on her and twin sister Brie’s hit E! show Total Bellas in 2018. As Radar readers recall, Nikki called off the wedding not once but twice after years of waiting for John to come around and agree to marriage and babies.
Now, a family source close to the twins revealed Nikki has “never been happier than she is right now” with her new boyfriend and former Dancing with the Stars partner, Artem Chigvintsev. Nikki’s close family members believe her relationship with Artem is a sign that her relationship with John was “not meant to be.”
“Nikki is a very happy woman right now,” said the family insider, adding that it’s “a blessing” that her wedding to Cena “never happened.”
“She’s found her true happiness,” the source continued.
Nikki and John came under fire in 2018 after reports claimed their breakup was a publicity stunt.
The family source added that while Nikki’s relatives “wish the best” for John, they’re relieved he and Nikki “didn’t go that far.”
“It was good it ended before a wedding. She’s just blessed that it happened this way. When she does decide to marry, it’ll be a first, true wedding,” the source continued.
As Radar readers know, Nikki is often gushing about her relationship with her professional dancer boyfriend on her social media accounts. The couple just joined Nikki’s family members on a birthday trip to France for the twins.
“The happiest birthday to my beautiful Nicole may this be very special filled with lots of love, I love you so so much,” Artem captioned a photo of Nikki on her 36th birthday on November 21.
