WWEs Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie, are on British shores for the companys latest tour of the UK. Nikki is set to wrestle on Smackdown, which takes place in Glasgow on Tuesday, with Brie, who is expecting her first child, accompanying her husband and blue-brand General Manager, Daniel Bryan. The Bella Twins joined WWE in 2007 Sky Sports managed to grab a few words with the women, who first signed for WWE in 2007 and who have gone on to land a combined three Divas Titles, two for Nikki and one for Brie. The California-born siblings discussed their favourite things about the UK, Halloween, their documentary Total Bellas, Nikkis boyfriend John Cena, and whether Brie will ever return to the ring…What is it like being back in the UK?BRIE BELLA: We love it here. Every time we come I feel like its the first time weve been here - the history is beautiful, there is a real ambience and everyone dresses great, too.NIKKI BELLA: I always buy new outfits when I come here as everyone always looks so sharp! Nikki wears her customary baseball cap to the ring Do you get time to explore?BRIE: Nikki and I make sure we get time to explore. A lot of people go to the gym but we are such tourists and love to go and see stuff. We have been able to see the world and there is no way we could have done that without WWE.NIKKI: Ill be in Spain for the first time next week so I am really excited - but my favourite place to go is probably Paris.BRIE: Id also say Paris but Italy, too - when we wrestled in Verona I fell in love with the place.How did you spend Halloween, Brie?BRIE: I actually had a boring Halloween - I flew in from Los Angeles and by the time I landed all the Trick or Treaters were done so I just hung out with the dogs and watched Monday Night Football.Monday Night Football - surely not Stokes versus Swansea?BRIE: Sorry, American football. I always forget you call soccer football over here!We saw how you spent Halloween, Nikki - you dressed up as your boyfriend, John Cena, and he dressed up as you! John Cena dressed as Nikki Bella for Halloween NIKKI: It was actually Johns idea! We did collaborate but he brilliantly came up with it. We were going to do full entrances in a ring and stuff but I had just had dental surgery so I said I cant go in the ring. He then came up with the amazing idea to do it at the house.Watch the full video at WWEs YouTube pageBRIE: He got you spot on!NIKKI: He said he was definitely the ugliest girl in the world but I said thats a good thing - Ive got a manly man!We can see you, John and Bries husband, Daniel Bryan on Total Bellas. How much fun is that show to film?NIKKI: To film with our family is awesome - you have to hang out with each other and I love that because I hate being alone. There were tough moments but I had a blast.BRIE: The conversations were just different - as we were with our family our chemistry, connection and history were apparent. It was a different feeling - for example, if youre tired you can tell your family to bog off and they dont get offended. If I say that on Total Divas, someone goes Oh, she doesnt like me and it turns into a big, dramatic situation!NIKKI: I think both shows have given an intimate look into our lives and relationships and shown that we are normal people - for example, you have seen how depressed Daniel Bryan became [as he dealt with injuries and retirement]. People also get to see Brie and Is passion for wrestling. People have realised we are here for wrestling, not anything else.BRIE: When we came in, you were very much your characters on TV, but with social media and Total Divas you have understood who we really are. We are now ourselves - Vince McMahon let us wear our own clothes and have our own gimmicks and that took our careers to the next level. Vince McMahon is the chairman of WWE We saw how emotional Daniel was when he had to retire - does being General Manager of Smackdown fill the void?BRIE: I think so - he is still surrounded by wrestling and still gets to be creative. Its obviously hard that he cant get in the ring but to be around his friends and part of the business in some way helps him, even though he will tell you: Yeah - but I want to be in the ring!NIKKI: He is a good General Manager - but I have to tell him: Look at the opportunities the women on Raw are getting [such as Hell in a Cell]! Seriously, he is doing an amazing job - his presence and the way the crowd reacts to him takes our show to a whole new level. Daniel Bryan named Smackdowns Survivor Series squad to take on Raw – and explained why he omitted The Miz What sort of show is Smackdown to wrestle on, Nikki?NIKKI: I love being on Smackdown. I feel like there is so much more opportunity and we get to tell such fun, interesting stories. Everyone wants to work together to create gold - its the best locker room I have ever been in throughout my whole career.BRIE: Now, being a fan, I love the difference between Raw and Smackdown - I know that each show will be completely different and that makes it so fun to watch!And does it make you even more determined to step back into the ring?BRIE: Heck yes!NIKKI: She is already counting down the days.BRIE: I miss wrestling so much and cannot wait to make a comeback. Would I like to wrestle my sister? I do enjoy that, but Id like to come back as a Bell Twin and take on Lita and Trish Stratus. You need to make that happen! Brie is expecting her first child in the spring How proud were you of Charlotte and Sasha Banks, the first women to compete inside Hell in a Cell?BRIE: We were together watching it and on our feet the whole time. It was an incredible moment for the womens division but also Charlotte and Sasha themselves, to main event a pay-per-view that has traditionally been so dominated by men. We had goosebumps.NIKKI: I now feel no match is beyond the womens division. Hopefully now though its not about women this, women that and that people accept that mens and womens wrestling are equal. Charlotte and Sasha Banks met in the first-ever Womens Hell in a Cell Match Youve been wrestlers for a long time now - did you think youd have this longevity?NIKKI: Everyone used to tell me: Just so you know, Divas only last five years around here. I said: What, I want to be here forever! I have now been here for 10 years and been on an incredible journey - Ive seen womens wrestling and the WWE change dramatically. The place has become my home and Im looking forward to 10 more years.Which women from other sports have inspired you over the years?BRIE: Even though they have retired now [former American womens soccer players] Mia Hamm and Carla Overbeck were great influences on us. We played soccer growing up and it wasnt that big in the United States, but Mia and Carla made it something.NIKKI: Ronda Rousey is definitely one - I find everything she has done in UFC so inspirational. Serena Williams is another - she reminds me of John Cena in a way, in that they have stayed on top of their game for so long and so many people still connect with them. She still blows my mind.Do you think Ronda Rousey to WWE is a natural progression? Stephanie McMahon wants it to happen. McMahon wants Rousey in WWE Raw boss would welcome UFC star joining the company BRIE: 100 per cent! She is a fan, first off, and the movements in the ring between UFC and WWE are the same.How does football - or soccer, as you keep calling it - help you in the ring?NIKKI: It certainly helps me with my footing. When we started training with WWE, coaches were impressed and asked if we had had boxing training. I said no, it was all soccer. As a defender, I had to learn to stay on my feet, track backwards and I feel all the movement I do in the ring was helped by my soccer background.BRIE: Our coach was actually from England and he was very strict with us - teaching us discipline and drive. We have taken those into wrestling and thats what helped us excel so quickly. We knew hard work paid off. When weve worked hard, we want to work even harder.Is football getting bigger and bigger in the States all the time?NIKKI: Its so big and people dont want to feel left out. They think: Right, I need to buy a Manchester United jersey and go to a bar to watch the game. I live at the beach in California and am blown away by how many people I see walking around in soccer shirts on a Saturday.BRIE: Our brother is a die-hard fan of Arsenal. There is tension in our house when he is up early in the morning, watching their games and drinking beer. Our brother is a diehard fan of Arsenal.

Nikki Bella Finally, what is your favourite English food and favourite English TV show?NIKKI: I love doing high tea. Paige, who is from Norwich, makes fun of me and says Brits dont really do that but I always go and do it. I love the little sandwiches, especially the salmon ones!BRIE: Its cucumber sandwiches for me, but I also love the way you guys do French fries. You nail it!NIKKI: As for TV, it has to be The Office - the British original, not the American version. There is definitely a different sense of humour between Brits and Americans, but Brie and I dont really laugh at the American comedies and movies. Some of the jokes are so bad!BRIE: Were like quirky Brits! Also See: Ronda Rousey to WWE?

PHOENIX -- When Karrie Webb was asked about the all the good young players on the LPGA Tour, the questioner noted that Lydia Ko was 16 and Jessica Korda 21. "Im not even that added up," the 39-year-old Australian replied. And to the Hall of Famers surprise, when all the math was done Sunday in the JTBC Founders Cup, she was the one posing for pictures with the big trophy. "I didnt expect to be sitting here at the start of the day," Webb said. "Even, actually, when I finished the day, I didnt expect to be sitting here. So I feel a little bit lucky, I guess, to be sitting here. But it doesnt make it feel any less special." She took the lead with a course-record 9-under 63, then waited 90 minutes to see if anyone could catch her. No one did. "I thought best-case scenario I was in a playoff," Webb said. Webb is close friends with founding player Louise Suggs and has a deep appreciation for the 13 women who started the LPGA Tour in 1950. "Its a very special event," Webb said. For the second time in the event, Webb overcame a six-stroke deficit in the final round. In 2011 in the inaugural tournament, she finished with a 66 for a one-stroke victory. "I just love the feeling of this event," Webb said. Webb donated $50,000 of her $225,000 check, giving $25,000 each to LPGA-USGA Girls Golf and "The Founders" documentary movie. She did an interview for the film this week and learned that only about 10 per cent of the necessary money had been raised to complete the project. "I was just standing on the 18th green when Mike (Whan, LPGA Tour commissioner) was introducing me, and it just came to me that, You know, I would love to be a part of that movie being produced." Webb talked Friday night with the 90-year-old Suggs, a fixture at the tournament the last three years but unable to make it this year. "She told me that I had to go out and shoot 64 yesterday, which I let her down and I didnt do that," Webb said. "So, I made it up to her today." She certainly did. Webb had 10 birdies and a bogey, playing the back nine in 6-uunder 30.dddddddddddd She birdied five of the last six holes, making a birdie with a 20-footer on the par-4 18th to finish at 19-under 269. "I definitely putted probably the best I have all week," Webb said. "Worked on a few things last night and really got the ball rolling on the back nine." Webb also rallied to win the Womens Australian Open last month and has 41 LPGA Tour victories to match founding player Babe Zaharias for 10th place. Ko, the third-round leader, parred the final three holes to finish a stroke back along with 2013 winner Stacy Lewis, Azahara Munoz, Amy Yang and Mirim Lee. The 16-year-old Ko shot 70. She had a three-stroke lead after birdieing Nos. 2-5, slipped back with bogeys on Nos. 6, 9 and 11 and pulled within one with a birdie on the par-5 15th. "I tried to get myself together," Ko said. "I made some bogeys at the wrong time, which wasnt ideal, but I tried my best until the last." Munoz and Yang, playing together in the third-to-last group, missed long birdie putts on 18 and each shot 67. Lee shot 69 in the next group, also missing a long birdie try. That left Ko -- and her 25-foot try on the last was just short and right. "I played really well overall, so Im just going to take the positive out of it," Ko said. Lewis birdied the final two holes for a 66. "It was just really nice to hit the shots and make the putts at the end," Lewis said. "Seeing putts go in always helps going into the next couple of weeks." DIVOTS: Korda, playing with Ko in the last group, had a quadruple-bogey 8 on the par-4 seventh after hitting her approach into the desert, then played the final 11 holes in 5 under to tie for seventh at 17 under. The Bahamas winner shot 70. ... Hee-Won Han also matched the course record with a 63 to tie for 15th at 14 under. Playing in the ninth group of the day, she holed a sand wedge for eagle on No. 7. Ai Miyazato set the course record last year and Cristie Kerr matched it Saturday. Kerr finished with a 67 to tie for 10th at 16 under. ... Top-ranked Inbee Park closed with a 67 to tie for 10th.
