Nikki Bella On Facing Ronda Rousey, Standing Out In WWE

Nikki Bella talked with Matt Burke of Metro about her WWE Raw Women’s Title match with Ronda Rousey at this Sunday’s Evolution pay-per-view event. Here are the highlights.

Her match with Ronda Rousey:

“A fan recently tallied it up. I think I’ve competed in well over 600 matches,” Bella said. “I think she’s had like 24 matches in WWE. So that speaks for itself. This Sunday it’s going to be the best performance of my career, for sure. I’ll have my sister Brie in my corner, I have a new move set, and the Bellas always have a few tricks up their sleeves.”

Standing out in WWE:

“You have to blend it all together,” Bella told Metro. “It’s charisma, it’s likeability. You have to bring something different to the table. The minute a woman walks out of that curtain it’s about how much she connects with that crowd. Does she get their attention? How well does she speak on the mic? It’s all about confidence, and I only started to get better when I just started being me.”
