Brie Bella Says She's Not Retired, Claims WWE Producers Wanted To Get Her Breast Implants

During the first episode of Lilian Garcia’s "Making Their Way To The Ring" podcast, Brie Bella discussed getting emotional about Daniel Bryan's depression, Mickie James and more. Here are some highlights:

On being asked by WWE producers of the Diva Search to get implants:
“I understand they had to have some weird questions. But there were a couple I wasn’t too comfortable with. They talked about my breasts. I didn’t have big ones…They asked if I would allow them to pay for me to have a boob job. I literally stood on stage and I was looking around like, what? They were like, well you guys don’t have breasts. I’m like, I’m so confused what’s going on right now. But you know, they’re making TV.”
On being inspired by Mickie James:
“I’ll never forget Mickie James. She was one of the ones who really stood out to me…I was watching and I was thinking to myself, whoa! This is incredible! I actually started really getting into it.”
On getting emotional about Daniel Bryan’s depression:
“The producers on Total Bellas and Total Divas would say, you never cry. I’m like, I don’t? They’re like, you get emotional but you really don’t cry. People really saw me cry for the first time on Total Bellas over Bryan’s depression. I was just very overwhelmed. But I think I’ve shed so many tears in my 20s that you just get to a place where you’re just like, this is life, you gotta roll with it. We live, we die and everything in between is what you make of it.”
On Victoria putting her over in her debut:
“Oh my gosh, a veteran, and I’m brand new. I’m still green and I have to beat Victoria…That’s where I was so grateful, because I was scared to work her and then she couldn’t have helped me more through that storyline. She could have either made me look like an idiot or made me look like I belong there, and she made me look like I belonged there.”
On whether she’s really retired:
“No. I definitely have to make a comeback. I’d never go on the road, because my child is number one. I would love to come back for a match. I would love it, especially if I can do it with my sister and have another match with her because we didn’t get that. My retirement, I always visualized my husband being by my side and being in the ring with my sister. I didn’t get either of those. So I would love something like that and I’ll see how I can get myself back into shape after.”
On retiring while Bryan and Nikki’s futures were in question:
“It took the joy out a little bit, of me going in there, because I knew both of them would do anything to be in my position. So I almost felt like I had guilt every time I’m going to that ring. It killed me too, and I think people saw it on Total Bellas and you saw it on the first episode of Total Divas this past week, it was hard for me to have a happy retirement because my husband was suffering so bad of losing his dreams and working so hard for something that he thought was going to be the rest of his life.”
