Nikki and Brie Garcia, better known as WWE wrestling tag team The Bella Twins, are rebranding for their “new chapter” — starting with an official name change. During the March 15 episode of their SiriusXM podcast, “The Nikki and Brie Show,” the pair shared why they’re choosing to change their last names from Bella to Garcia and revealed that they’re ending their contract with WWE.

“Today, we are officially from here on out, the Garcia Twins — Brie and Nikki Garcia,” said Nikki. “Our listeners and everyone in the world right now is asking ‘Why?’ You had this amazing name that you got from your grandfather, Pop Pop, who’d always call us ‘my bellas, my bellas.’ And so why after 17 years is that gone?”

Nikki went on to say that the name change marks the start of a new era for the duo. “Brie and I almost 40, we’re gonna be 40 in November. We’re mothers, we’re entrepreneurs. We’re executive producers. We’re starring now, we’re hosting shows. And when our contracts came up with WWE, mutually we all knew we just needed to head into this new chapter.”
