Last week on Friday Night SmackDown, it was officially announced that The Bella Twins (Nikki and Brie Bella) will be inducted into this year’s WWE Hall of Fame during WrestleMania weekend.
They made an appearance on Tuesday’s episode of WWE Backstage on FOX Sports 1 where they recalled getting a phone call, which they missed initially, from WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.
Brie stated, “We saw his missed call and my first reaction was, Nikki, what did you say in the press? We thought we were in trouble, we called Vince back together and when he told us, we were shocked, ‘What? This year?'”
Nikki added that it was a nice thing to have McMahon tell them the sweetest things after you have worked hard for so long and have fought for so many things while with the company. She added that they look up to McMahon and appreciate him giving them an incredible opportunity.
WWE has already confirmed Dave Bautista and the nWo (Kevin Nash, Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, and Sean Waltman) as inductees into the class.
The ceremony takes place on April 2, 2020 at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, as part of WrestleMania 36 weekend. You can watch the entire clip by clicking on the player below:
