Nikki Bella has opened up on a potential role for her on WWE TV.
There were rumors that were going around online last week that one of the storylines being prepared for the third season of Total Bellas is about the possibility of Bella general manager of SmackDown Live.
The reason that she could become GM is due to it allowing her to stay on television and wrestle occasionally.
Current SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan has teased in the past about returning to Ring of Honor once his contract with WWE expires next year. Bryan, who was forced to retire last year due to his history with concussions, has talked about wrestling again in the past. Whether that be in WWE or in another promotion.
Although the sports entertainment company wasn’t fully behind him at first, he has overcome the challenges that were put in front of him and became a fan favorite.
Despite that his run on top in WWE was short-lived, he no doubt made a mark on the history of the WWE. It’s believed that the former WWE Champion will be leaving WWE after his contract with the company expires in September of 2018.
These rumors are not surprising to hear due to the circumstances that are around Bryan right now. With him teasing leaving WWE when his contract ends with the sports entertainment company, it shouldn’t shock fans to see him compete again the squared circle outside of the WWE banner.
There has also been some speculation about Bryan changing his mind about re-signing with the company. It seems that WWE officials are preparing for Bryan’s departure, which could open the door for someone like Bella to replace him.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Bella discussed the rumors of her running for the SmackDown. Here is what she had to say:
“I’m not gonna lie, I totally pitched hard to do that. The company thought it was a great idea, but creatively at the time it wasn’t going to work out because I did sign on with Dancing With the Stars and no one knew yet, so it was going to be too short of a run. But they were positive about it, so I’m hoping that door stays open. I would love to come back and be a bad guy. I feel like I’m where John stands — I’m better used as a good guy. But can you imagine me coming back as a bad girl and having some fun with Shane [McMahon]? It would just be amazing. So we’ll see.”
