After their contracts expired after April 30, Brie Bella & Nikki Bella (Brianna Garcia & Stephanie Nicole Garcia) posted a statement on their website, NicoleAndBrianna.com, about their WWE departure:
What a whirlwind few days. As you all know by now, TwinMagic has decided to take some time away from wrestling. First and foremost, we want to thank each and every one of you for your support. We would not be where we are without the Bella Army. This beautiful chapter in our life was filled with many amazing memories, friendships and moments with you all that we will cherish. Being apart of WWE is like being apart of a family, we will always be in it
Just so you know, we need your continued support. We are on the cover of Maxim Espanol this month and later on this week check out the calendar to see where you can meet us.
Throughout the last five years, the Bella Army has helped us take home two Diva Championships and helped make us two of WWE’s most popular Diva’s, but most importantly the interaction we had with Bella Fans everywhere has allowed us to have so much fun. We want this fun to continue. Keep talking to us on Twitter and interacting on our blog posts. We will also do fan questions this week with the hash tag #BellaArmyForever.
Remember it’s not Good-Bye….the fun is just getting started BELLA style!
Today at 4pmEST/1pmPST we will be doing a twitter Q&A so join us @thebellatwins
