Nikki and Brie Bella’s mom is engaged to WWE bigwig John Laurinaitis.
Laurinaitis is the former executive vice president of Talent Relations and general manager of Monday Night RAW, and is still said to hold a lot of sway within the industry, which has fans calling out the serious bias since Nikki currently holds the title of WWE Divas Champion. Her title will even become record-breaking if she keeps it for much longer. And fans think the nepotism — now that the family ties are official — could ensure that Nikki keeps her prominent title at least until she holds it the longest.

Several fans took to Twitter to point out the problem with the close family ties.

Though Nikki has yet to comment on the rumors directly, she did seem to allude to them in a tweet she posted last week.
When you are succeeding, everyone will talk about you and your success. Good or Bad. Don't believe everything you read. N

Rather than focus on the negativity, however, the family seems to be celebrating.
“One of the best nights of my life,” Cathy said in her caption with the photo.
Plus, now that Brie is married and Mama Bella is engaged, does this mean that John Cena — Nikki’s longtime love — will also be popping the question soon? Then it would really be a WWE family dynasty like we’ve never seen before.
