Entertainment reporter and founder of Reel Talker, Jim Alexander, had the chance to interview Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev at a charity poker event at Paramount Studios.
During the interview, Bella talks about Artem’s new friendship with Daniel Bryan, wanting to wrestle WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and the nixed plans for a feud with Billie Kay and Peyton Royce after WrestleMania 35.
The full interview is available here. Here are some of the highlights:
On their relationship: I’m extremely happy, Artem is an amazing man since the first day I met him. I’m very happy. It’s just making time for that person. We do date nights. Sometimes it’s just us being in sweatpants, no makeup and just cooking for me. Artem introduced me to the simple life of it and I crave that stuff.
Spending time with Daniel Bryan: Artem: Yes, I have, we just spent time in Tahoe. Nikki: Omgosh they are so great, they are so alike. Artem: I love to cook and he loves to grow vegetables, so it’s a perfect combination. Nikki: Even both want to get into business together with Frankie Muniz.
On wrestling again and who she’d love to feud with: I’d love to come back and wrestle “The Man” Becky Lynch, she’s doing so well, or “The Iconics” would be a dream. We planned on doing that after Wrestlemania.
