Brie Bella recently did an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated where she discussed a variety of topics about wrestling in the WWE, her show The Total Bellas and her husband Daniel Bryan. During the interview, Brie reveals how Daniel was too excited to sleep the night before his WrestleMania match:
“The night before WrestleMania, it was actually really cute, he couldn’t sleep because he was so excited. I told him, ‘Think of everything you’ve done to get here.’ So to go from one night where we couldn’t sleep because we were both so sad to another night where we couldn’t sleep because we were so excited, that was so crazy. I’m so proud of him. He’s healthy, he deserves to be in that ring. It shows that with passion and dedication, you can truly accomplish anything.”
Brie talked about the upcoming season of Total Bellas and how it is going to feature John Cena and Nikki Bella:
“So many people have so many questions where John and Nicole are at, and why everything happened, and I think this season will answer a lot of those questions. I give them a lot of credit for opening up their lives. We all told ourselves we had to be an open book. If you’re going to do reality, you need to do the good and the bad. I think that’s why so many people love Nicole and me. We’re real and honest. There are some really intimate conversations between Nicole and John. I think my sister is just like, ‘Other women go through this,’ and she wants them to feel like they’re not alone.”
Brie reveals that she was very happy when she was invited to be a part of the Women’s Royal Rumble match. She also talks about how Molly Holly told them that she loved their show and how recieving a compliment from Holly is such a big deal for Brie.
“I was so honored they called me, and I couldn’t believe I could get in the ring with Lita, Trish, and Asuka. I still can’t believe my name was on the same list as Molly Holly. Someone needed to pinch me. Molly came up to Nicole and me and was like, ‘I’ve been dying to meet you guys, I love Total Bellas.’ And I was like, ‘Wait, what? You watch it?’ And she said, ‘Yes, thank you for having women wrestlers recognized in the mainstream world.’ And I was like, oh my gosh, Molly Holly just paid me a compliment.”
