Nikki & Brie Bella, two of the most iconic female Superstars in WWE history, are the latest inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2020. They will take their place in the hallowed hall on Thursday, April 2, in Tampa, Florida, during WrestleMania 36 Week. The news was first revealed by Alexa Bliss during “A Moment of Bliss” on Friday Night SmackDown.

The Bella Twins join Batista and nWo members Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Sean Waltman and Kevin Nash in the 2020 class so far. Nikki & Brie will react to the huge news in an interview on WWE Backstage this Tuesday at 11 p.m. ET on FS1.

Nikki Bella's joy knew no bounds as she took to Instagram to share a lovely video of their journey in WWE and wrote, 'It’s hard to find all of the words to describe how happy, excited and honored I feel being inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame with @thebriebella in Tampa, FL WrestleMania week. Yesterday we felt SO many beautiful emotions! Hall of Fame for us is the ultimate achievement of gratitude in our industry. It’s a place as a WWE Superstar we all hope to get to. We couldn’t have done it without our strong, amazing Bella Army, our motivation to break barriers and want better for women, the inspiration of fight and courage from the women before us and the hunger from the women after us. Being inducted isn’t an achievement just about us, about me, it isn’t solo. Being inducted is about showing gratitude to everyone who helped you achieve your dreams. I have SO many men and women to thank! My list is long! I am a lucky women to have so many come into my life to help me raise the bar, challenge myself, turn no’s into yes’s, negatives into positives, keep shinning light into darkness and fight for what I believe in. Kindness always conquers. It can be hard to see at times, but believe me kindness always wins. PS thank you to the amazing WWE production team back in Stamford, CT that made this video for us. Brought tears to Brie and I’s eyes! Thank you! And to @alexa_bliss_wwe_ for letting us join A Moment of Bliss, your words were so incredibly kind, thank you for always being a beautiful soul to us! Truly unforgettable!"

The road to the WWE Hall of Fame was a long one for Nikki & Brie, who started their WWE careers by having a little fun deceiving their opponents. Brie debuted in August 2008 and strung together a series of wins, seemingly getting a second wind after scampering under the ring. However, their ruse would soon be revealed to be a bit of “Twin Magic,” as it was discovered that Brie’s twin sister Nikki was hiding under the ring, ready to switch places and pick up the victory. Though they had been found out, that tactic would go on to pay off for the Bellas countless times over the years.

Though “Twin Magic” was their calling card early on, Nikki & Brie proved they were extremely capable competitors. Brie was the first to capture championship gold, defeating Eve Torres to become WWE Divas Champion in April 2011. Nikki followed suit one year later with a victory over fellow WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix. Nikki captured the title again at Survivor Series 2014, dethroning AJ Lee to kickstart a reign that would last 300 days, the longest in Divas Championship history.

Throughout their time in WWE, The Bella Twins were part of many classic rivalries, facing off with the likes of Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, Stephanie McMahon and even each other. They also helped introduce a new generation of fans to WWE with their hit reality shows “Total Divas” and “Total Bellas,” as well as their YouTube channel, which boasts more than 2.6 million subscribers.

And now, they’re being recognized for their incredible careers with the ultimate honour: induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. Don’t miss The Bella Twins taking their place in sports-entertainment history during the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Thursday, April 2, during WrestleMania 36 Week. Tickets for the ceremony are available now at Ticketmaster and the Amalie Arena box office.
