Nikki Bella is starting to look like a serious contender to win it all on Dancing With The Stars

Look out. The Bella-Cena trophy case might be adding a Mirrorball to all those WWE belts championship titles.

On the Oct. 23 episode of Dancing With The Stars, Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev wowed the judges on “Movie Night”. Their foreign film-inspired Argentine tango earned 9s from all three judges and gave them a new personal best score.

Bella had a lot of support, as sister Brie and mom Kathy were joined by fiance John and Total Divas co-star Maryse (I guess they made up?) to see The Fearless One receive praise from the panel - including Carrie Ann Inaba telling The Fearless One she was starting to look like one of the pros.

They learned early on they were not at risk for elimination on this episode, and Nikki and Artem’s second straight strong performance seems to have left them in a good place for next week. But their 36 wasn’t the best score of the night, so who knows? Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas earned a perfect 40, and Jordan Fisher and his partner again impressed with a 39.

Still, with Nick Lachey getting the axe last night and at least one clearly weaker competitor (cough Property Brothers’ Drew Scott cough), Bella’s prospects for moving on into November and maybe even winning the trophy are looking better and better.
