10 Facts You May Not Have Known About The Bella Twins

5. They Were Athletes Growing Up

Looking at the Bella Twins today, it’s pretty obvious that they’re in phenomenal physical shape. I mean, just check out their bodies – those physiques are definitely built in the gym. However, they weren’t slim, unathletic models before they came to the WWE – they’ve been athletes their entire lives.

Both twins played soccer all growing up, and when they were older, they split into their respective sports of choice – ballet for Brie, and continuing soccer for Nikki. Nikki was serious about soccer and even considered going professional until a leg injury pretty much put an end to her soccer career.

Well, we’ve got to say – we’re glad both gave up their earlier athletic pursuits in favor of wrestling.
