The Bella Twins Reveal How Long The WWE 2021 Hall Of Fame Speeches Will Be
Nikki & Brie recorded their induction on Tuesday...
The Bella Twins have revealed they were told they had between three and five minutes for their speech at the WWE 2021 Hall Of Fame ceremony.
Nikki and Brie will be inducted as members of the Class Of 2020 at the 2021 ceremony, after the COVID-19 Pandemic postponed last year's event, with WWE taping the 2020 portion of the ceremony on Tuesday.
The duo have revealed they had expected to be given 15 minutes for their speech but were told they had just a third of that time when they arrived.
Speaking on the Bellas Podcast, Brie said: "We had a speech written, but then we realized it was too long because we're only allowed to do our speech for three to five minutes. We wrote a 15-minute speech because usually, they are like '10 to 15 minutes,' then we found out they were like, 'No, it has to be three to five minutes.'
"To do your Hall of Fame speech and take out that much stuff is really hard. We're wondering like, 'How do we condense this. What's important? We want to thank all these people and tell stories'."
Nikki added: "We've always been grateful women and that's where it's difficult. The majority of our speech is thanking people and they're like, 'talk more about yourself.' We've already proven ourselves as Hall of Famers. It's almost like winning an Oscar. You're thanking the people who helped you get there."
Brie and Nikki's revelation indicates WWE is trying to limit speech time, which is understandable given there are two classes of inductees to include instead of the usual solitary group.
The Hall Of Fame ceremony will air on Tuesday 6 April on Peacock and the WWE Network.
