The WWE finally made the right move.

After botching the John Cena-Brock Lesnar feud, they hit a home run by firing the Bella twins from the Diva Division. Their act had clearly grown staler than month-old bread, and swift action had to be taken.

The commentators at Monday Night Raw first reported the firing after their embarrassing loss to Layla that ended in about five seconds. The twins were arguing with each other, and a flying kick from Layla knocked one of them out of the ring and dazed the other enough to land the pin.

It was another weak showing one night after getting rocked at Extreme Rules. It became clear WWE wanted them out and ensured their exit was a less than graceful one. Sure their contracts expired after the night and maybe the twins didn't want to re-sign, but I think WWE was sick of them.

So now they are gone and are going to be suffering a serious downgrade in their appearances. Wrestlinginc is reporting that the Bella Twins will be at the Northeast Wrestling show on June 1st... Yawn.

WWE has officially removed them from their roster page.

The Divas division is the weakest it’s been in a very long time, and a sizable amount of the blame can be placed on the twins. They became sour personalities and didn’t offer the same luster and passion of the old days.

This sets up the perfect return for Kharma, one of the all-time greats. With Beth Phoenix nursing her ankle back to health, the cupboard is incredibly bare. Infusing a legend like Kharma back into the mix would reignite the flame. I expect to see her return on this week’s episode of Raw.

So sayonara, Bella Twins. You were fun to watch for a while, but you clearly had worn out your welcome.
