Update on Candice and the WWE Draft, a Bella Twin Speaks, More

– Howard Finkel has posted a blog on the WWE Universe site offering his thoughts on those Superstars he feels should be drafted this coming Monday on Raw. One talent he’d like to see get drafted comes in the form of former WWE Women’s Champion Candice Michelle as the WWE Hall of Famer would like to see her get a fresh start on SmackDown.

Finkel wrote: “Fresh start. A new beginning. Unfortunately, Candice has been snake bit by the injury jinx through the last few years. When she entered WWE, lshe learned and applied well, and her attitude and energy has always been most admirable. She is about ready to return to action once again, and to me, from a perception standpoint, I think a move to SmackDown would serve her well. Start all over again with a new brand, and show them that you mean business; it doesn’t take long to get noticed!”

As reported earlier, Candice Michelle has expressed interested in joining SmackDown.

– Nikki Bella has posted a blog on the WWE Universe site in which she talks about reuniting with her sister. Following this week’s SmackDown, The Bella Twins reunited on a video shown exclusively on WWE Mobile on AT&T.

Here is her blog in its entirety:

Hola to my WWE Universe

I know it’s been awhile, but I had been very busy on the road to Wrestlemania. And WOW what an amazing Wrestlemania that was! Can we say Undertaker and HBK’s match! MY GOODNESS AMAZING! 🙂

“Forgiveness is the scent that the ROSE leaves on the HEEL that crushes it.” -John Arnoh

Now I wanted to talk to you all about what’s been going on with Brie and I, and I want to apologize to you all and her, as I already did, for my actions. If you check out the new WWE Mobile, I apologize to Brie and she accepts my apology. She truely is strong.

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the STRONG.” -Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

See sometimes, as you all know, you see differently for your family and will do whatever it takes to help your family succeed. I saw an opportunity for Brie and I and so I took it and tried to make her take it as well. Brie being sweet and kind-hearted declined and tried to show me something different. As family often does, we saw things differently. I wanted the guys to earn us and really show that they wanted us, where Brie wanted to stay because of how nice they are. Plus I know she had a crush on Primo as well as he did on her 🙂 I love my sister to death and would never ever want to hurt her, I want the best for her, and taking a step on the dark side is what I thought would be the best. Obviously days before Wrestlemania I realized that I was wrong and that’s why I wasn’t around the boys during that time. Instead I spent a lot of time thinking…….

And that’s when I went to Brie and from the bottom of my heart asked for her forgiveness…. And when she opened her arms to me and said of course I was like a little kid at Christmas! Boy did I miss her! Brie and I have been inseparable since! My mom came to Wrestlemania and us 3 had such a great time! It was so awesome all being together again! It was a great lesson I learned. We aren’t perfect, but it’s our mistakes that make us stronger. As long as we learn from them.

So as far as The Bella Twins go…. WE ARE BACK!! And stronger then ever!! She and I can’t wait to tear it up in the ring again… TOGETHER!! We hope and pray for all of WWE Universe support!! As we say….



“In truth a family is what you make it. It is made strong, not by number of heads counted at the dinner table, but by the rituals you help family members create, by the memories you share, by the commitment of time, caring, and love you show to one another, and by the hopes for the future you have as individuals and as a unit.” -Marge Kennedy
