In announcing their split from WWE and dropping the “Bella” surname they used during their 17-year Hall of Fame careers with the company, Nikki and Brie Garcia were very kind.
But because of some of the recent critical comments they’ve made about WWE’s treatment of them in particular and women’s wrestling in general, and things like Brie’s husband, Bryan Danielson, working at AEW, their recent visit to Revolution in San Francisco, and this Twitter exchange with AEW star Dr. Britt Baker yesterday (March 14)…
…there has been quite a bit of speculation that the Garcia Twins might sign themselves with AEW.
Nikki shot this down on Instagram Live today, saying:
“We’re not going to AEW. I know, I’ve seen a lot because, I think, we were just there to visit Renee [Paquette] and Paige [Saraya]. I was like, I didn’t get a chance to take [her son] Matteo backstage at a wrestling event, and when he found out Uncle Bryan was gonna be there – Matteo loves his Uncle Bryan, Brie and I were like, we have to go see Bryan. The kids had so much fun.”
So this is it. Personally, I’d probably still put a “never say never” asterisk on this one, though.
