Brie Bella On Women’s Tag Team Titles Taking a While to Get Going, Says She & Nikki Were Supposed to Have ‘Long Run’

– Speaking with ESPN’s No Holds Barred, Brie Bella discussed the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles and why it took them a while to find their ground. The titles went quite a while without being defended under the IIconics’ reign, and are only now starting to get defended with regularity. Brie noted that WWE’s creative plans were derailed because she and Nikki were supposed to have a run with the belts, which went awry when Nikki had to retire due to her neck injury.

Highlights from the interview are below:

On why it took a while for the Women’s Tag Team Titles go gain traction: “I feel like when I watch, I just feel like sometimes there might be so many different things going on. And you just see creatively, they do have something they worry about first, second, third, fourth, and I feel like both the men’s tag team titles and the women’s tag team titles are down the list of being important. Which is too bad.”

On the men’s tag team titles having the same issues: “I do feel that even for the men, I see their division, I feel like it all should be important. I mean, I told my husband when they made him a tag champion. I said ‘Oh, awesome. This is gonna do wonders.’ But I kind of felt the same with Bryan, like he didn’t defend them as much as he should have. And I know he felt the same.”

On the original plans for the titles going awry: “So I just think that they’re not — maybe because they’re so new that they’re kind of just still getting their feet wet in what they want to do with them. And I know that they kind of were set on my sister and I doing a long run with them. And sometimes, you know, things happen last minute. So I don’t know. I feel like before we know it, they’re gonna really realize how special they are and what they’re capable of doing.”
