Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan are WWE celebrities, reality stars, and husband and wife. Read on for the facts on the couple below:
1. On Total Divas, Bryan’s Career Is On the Line
Bella and Bryan both star on the reality show Total Divas. Recently on the show, Bryan and Bella bought a new house and then Bryan got an unpleasant surprise … having to get shoulder surgery, which can really affect his career. The Citizen sums it up, saying:
After his surgery, Bryan meets with the WWE doctor. With Brie at his side, Bryan learns that while the surgery went well, the procedure was a little more complex than they first thought. That means a longer recovery time. Bryan will be out of action and, as Brie said, if he’s not working, he’s not making money. That leads them to start thinking about some of their big decisions, including the house they recently purchased.
Unfortunately, Bryan had to drop the title he just won because of his surgery and with no money coming in, the couple could have some financial issues ahead. Bryan’s current net worth is $2 million, while Bella’s is $1 million.

Brie Bella had a talk with E! News and the subject of kids came up. Bella confessed:
Babies have been on my mind and my husband’s mind. He would love to have them today if he could. It’s gonna be a really exciting season.
4. WWE’s Stephanie McMahon Claimed Bryan Cheated on Bella
At WWE’s Summerslam, Brie Bella was involved in a big match with Stephanie McMahon. McMahon put out claims that Bryan cheated on wife Bella, but don’t worry. It was just part of the story line for the WWE match. When IGN asked Bryan what he thought about his being brought into their story line, he said:
Yeah, to me, it’s groan-worthy. I don’t think it added anything to the story. It was just like, “Ugh!” But, you know, they do what they do, and you just gotta roll with the punches. It’s funny, because I feel like sometimes you just have to overcome these things more so than anything else. Like, Brie and Stephanie have to overcome that flaw. To me, that was a flaw in the story. The story was so good, and then here’s this flaw in it. But it’s whatever. It doesn’t hurt my feelings or anything, you know? It’s entertainment. It’s not real, so okay.
5. Bryan Tells Bella That He Doesn’t Want to Entertain for a Living
As a celebrity from the WWE and on Total Divas, Bryan and Bella are “entertainers.” Bryan reveals that he often talks to Bella about how he doesn’t want to live as an entertainer, telling IGN:
Well, my biggest concern with the whole deal with Total Divas and with WWE — and, you know, they want you to be engaged with social media and all this kind of stuff — I don’t want to live my life to entertain other people. I love wrestling and I love the entertainment aspect of wrestling, but the rest of my life I just want to be able to live and enjoy my life. I don’t want to be living it essentially for other people’s entertainment. That’s a lot of times what you’re doing when you’re doing the reality TV stuff. Like, “Okay, you can go about your daily life, but you have to go about it and be entertaining while you do it” — and not entertaining to yourself, but entertaining to people watching the show. I kind of reject that. I just try to be me, but it’s still cameras in your face. How much can you just be yourself with that? So that’s the part I struggle with more than anything. I talk with Brie about it all the time. I don’t want to live my life to entertain other people. I have other things that I’d like to do. So that’s the hardest part.
