WWE News: Bella Twins Have Been Fired

Ryan SzAnalyst IIApril 30, 2012

In a surprising turn, the WWE has just announced that former Divas champions Nikki and Brie Bella have been fired after their Divas title match with Layla, who won the title last night from Nikki Bella at the Extreme Rules PPV.

As stated on WWE.com:

WWE.com has learned that The Bella Twins have been fired from WWE.

The news comes just one day after Layla defeated Nikki Bella to capture the Divas Championship at Extreme Rules.

Stay with WWE.com tonight for more details as they become available.

Now, while it was being reported that the Bellas weren't going to renew their contracts, the usage of the word "fired" rather than released really makes one think that there may be more to this story, since the WWE didn't use the usual "future endeavors" announcement.

Hopefully more news comes out of this within the next couple of days to see if there was something going on behind the scenes or if this is a part of an angle.
