It's looking like the longest-reigning Divas champion in WWE history will be making a few appearances to help sell WrestleMania and send her sister off in style.
PWInsider reports that both Bella twins are expected for this Monday's Raw in Brooklyn, the 'go home' show for Mania 32. The program which is expected to culminate in a five-on-five women's match on Apr. 3 began with Brie and Lana, although the Total Divas star has been missing from the story for the past couple of weeks - possibly to support her husband, Daniel Bryan, if yesterday's report from Pro Wrestling Sheet is correct.
Still recuperating from spinal fusion surgery, there's no way that Nikki will be cleared for contact, but her presence will help sell an angle built on the Ravishing Russian's team's issues with the stars of the E! 'reality' series built around the Bellas.
Fueling all the rumors about swirling around the twins is this Instagram post by grappling coach Neil Melanson:
It was a fun change of pace today here @theblackzilians . @thenikkibella and @thebriebella came by to get a private training session in with me in preparation for Brie's upcoming Wrestlemania bout. I look forward to seeing her apply what she just learned in action . Thanks @mikechandlermma for helping out being my practice dummy. @bryanldanielson hope you're good brother. You were very much missed.

1) Lana is screwed if Brie improves her ground game in an effort to go out with a big win.
2) Even Melanson is worried about D-Bry.
Hopefully we'll get some more clarity on the angle and the real-world situation with Bryan this week.
