Brie And Nikki Bella Reveal How Victoria Beckham Spiced Up Their WWE Careers
Divas Nikki and Brie don't come for free, they are real ladies...
Brie and Nikki Bella have revealed the Spice Girls were an early inspiration for their sports entertainment careers.
Speaking on talkSPORT's Gorilla Position podcast, the twin WWE Divas recalled how the likes of Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell instilled in them a passion for performing.
Admitting they did not watch WWE - or much TV at all - as kids because of their commitments helping out on the family farm and their football training, Brie said: "The minute I saw Divas on TV, I was thinking: 'Oh my gosh, that's our calling.’
"We were athletes growing up, we like to be rough and tough but at the same time entertainment was something we always loved.
"I remember, when we were really young, we would dress up like the Spice Girls and put on these lip sync performances for all my parents' friends when they'd come over.”
Asked who her favourite Spice Girl was, Brie continued: "I loved Victoria - Posh Spice - because my hair was like hers.”
Current Divas champ Nikki added: "I liked Sporty Spice because she was so athletic. I felt we connected on that.
"I remember I loved how she wore the wife-beaters with the Adidas pants. It was cool."
