Noting that the future of women’s wrestling looks bright, Nikki Bella wrote:
“I have been shocked to say the least about some of the releases lately at WWE. Wanted to write a thank you post to the women that have given their everything to the wrestling industry. Mind, body, soul and time. I was so honored to share the ring with some of you and the ones I hadn’t I was so looking forward to one day sharing it.
@rubyriottwwe you were one of my favorite matches, you are such a selfless, kind, and incredibly talented woman.
@themickiejames you are an icon. I always hoped to have had a badass storyline with you. I know we could have created magic.
@jessicamckay and @cassielee goodness our future wrote itself, @thebriebella and I were dreaming of fighting for the tag titles against the both of you. You two were a magic duo!
@thelanawwe you shined in and out of that ring, loved our @totaldivas days and traveling the world together. So many amazing laughs and memories!
And @chelseaagreen was super excited to see what you were going to bring! Thank you all for the entertainment and the memories! I know the future is so bright for you all! Can’t wait to follow you all wherever you may go. #womenswrestling”
