The Bella Twins to attend Wizard World Comic Con Madison
MADISON, Wis. — WWE Divas The Bella Twins will attend the inaugural Wizard World Comic Con Madison on Saturday, Feb. 7, at the Alliant Energy Center. They will pose for photo ops beginning at 1 p.m., then sign autographs from 1:30 to 3:15 p.m. and follow up with an interactive Q&A panel at 3:30.
Training for the competition they’d soon crush (while male WWE fans formed crushes on them), Nikki and sister Brie made their way onto the main roster in 2008 and turned heads whenever they set foot inside the ring.
Outside the ring, Nikki & Brie have thrived as the center pieces of the hit E! reality show “Total Divas,” alongside castmates Cameron, Natalya, Eva Marie, Alicia Fox, Paige and Summer Rae.
As one-half of the dazzling Bella Twins, Brie debuted on SmackDown in 2008, defeating her first opponent, Victoria, by way of “Twin Magic” — a move in which she and her identical sister, Nikki, secretly switched places during matches. In 2011, the sneaky tactic helped Brie defeat Eve and win her first Divas Championship. Brie and WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan were married this past April.
A self-admitted “tomboy” with a feminine side, Nikki originally planned to play professional soccer until a leg injury ended her career. From there, she followed her twin sister Brie’s lead into WWE.
Ian Somerhalder (“The Vampire Diaries”), William Shatner (“Star Trek,” “Boston Legal”), Bruce Campbell (“The Evil Dead,” “Burn Notice”), Brett Dalton (“Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Emily Kinney (“The Walking Dead,” “Concussion”), Josh McDermitt (“The Walking Dead,” “Retired at 35”) and Kristin Bauer (“True Blood,” “Once Upon a Time”) headline the roster of celebrity guests scheduled to attend the pop culture extravaganza, the third event on Wizard World's calendar of 25 Comic Cons in 2015.
Wizard World Comic Con events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop-fi, pop culture, movies, graphic novels, cosplay, comics, television, sci-fi, toys, video gaming, gaming, original art, collectibles, contests and more. Wizard World Comic Con Madison show hours are Friday, Feb. 6, 3 to 8 p.m.; Saturday, Feb. 7, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 8, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
