Brie Bella On Her decision To retire, If She Will Miss The Term “Diva”, The New Women’s Championship

Brie Bella recently spoke to WWE.com about her decision to retire. Here are some highlights:

On her decision to retire:

“Yes. WrestleMania 32 was my last match. I wouldn’t say my last match forever, just my last match that you’ll see in a while. I am here at home because Daniel Bryan and I want to start a family soon. Or I shouldn’t say soon — we want to start it now! We’re going to start having babies, so I have to put my career on hold. It doesn’t mean that I’m going to be gone. I’m going to be an ambassador for WWE. But I’m going to try motherhood.”

 Will she miss the term “Diva” in WWE?:
“No! Absolutely not. Granted, of course, I have so many memories being a Diva. I guess it will always hold a special part of me. We always called ourselves Divas. I came in through Diva Search. I was a Divas Champion.

I always felt like it had this negative feeling to it because a Diva is so much more high maintenance, and that’s the last thing we women wrestlers are. I’m really happy to see it go, just as I was really sad when I saw the original Women’s Championship go away. It’s amazing to just finally have it. So, yeah, I definitely won’t miss it.”

On the new Women’s Championship:

“Oh, my gosh. It was crazy. It’s so hard to explain because it was such an overwhelming feeling. I couldn’t stop smiling. I was just so proud of the three girls in the match. I felt like this is probably what women felt like the day it was announced that women can vote, or the day that women started in business and started feeling equal to men, owning and running companies. For me, I just felt like “Whoa, this is it! This is no longer about men and women. This is about all of us being Superstars.” It’s a very surreal feeling, and I just can’t believe that I was actually there to witness it and be a part of it.”
