Nikki Bella wants to be the first female wrestler to hit The Rock’s level

Nikki Bella, whether you’ve been a fan or not, has accomplished quite a bit of crossover success during her time in WWE. She’s become a fine wrestler, is a reality television star, launched an apparel brand, and is even talking about doing movies now. It’s no surprise, then, that she’s talking about reaching the level of her soon-to-be-husband, John Cena, or, even beyond that, The Rock.

From her interview with Rolling Stone:

When you can be that character that comes in for WrestleMania knowing you are gonna headline, and when you are the guys that go out into this mainstream world and people automatically know, "Oh, the WWE person, they can host the ESPYs or Teen Choice," and Brie and I are on our way there but not quite there. WWE will always be my home. I always want to come back, have fun in that ring and tell a story, but also — whatever venture I was out on — bring people back to that ring. I'll never turn my back on WWE, and that's something Rock had done and John, of course.

The Bella Twins are planning a comeback in 2018, and there’s no telling what’s in store beyond that. For Brie, it’s likely another child and an increased focus on domestic life. For Nikki, though, the sky seems to be the limit.

Will she ever reach the level of The Rock?

You tell me.
