The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie, are leaving the WWE, PEOPLE can exclusively confirm.
The twins, who will return to going professionally by their real names Brie Garcia and Nikki Garcia, officially announced their departure from the WWE on Tuesday.
“Today we are officially from here on out, the Garcia Twins, Brie and Nikki Garcia,” Nikki says during the sisters’ new episode of their Sirius XM show, which will officially be called The Nikki & Brie Show going forward.
Nikki further explained that dropping their Bella identities was difficult, but the women feel it’s time to embrace a “new chapter” in their lives. “We’re going to be 40 in November,” Nikki explains, adding that they’re both now enjoying life as mothers, entrepreneurs, hosts and executive producers.

Brie adds she’s “so excited to close the chapter on Brie Bella” and open up a new book in her life. “Let’s see what Brie Garcia is going to do next,” she says.
