“It Was Awkward, Fun, and Crazy” with Anjelah Johnson

Straight up, this is a Hall of Fame episode! The Bellas bring their Royal Rumble recap together with the hilarious Anjelah Johnson-Reyes for an epic episode of the podcast.


Nikki & Brie kick off the episode giving exclusive behind-the-scenes details from the 2022 WWE Royal Rumble, details on their experiences returning to the ring and facing off against some familiar foes and a few new friends. It was a wild time in St. Louis with a great crowd reaction and an unexpected Bella betrayal that just might have evened the score (Probably not, though).


The Bellas also talk about working with Bianca Belair, Ronda Rousey, Lita, Charlotte Flair, Carmella, Zelina, and what an incredible inspiration Nikki A.S.H. is for the young fans of the WWE.


Brie also reveals a special moment she shared with Birdie after the Rumble and the surprising reaction she had after watching her mom and her aunt kick butt in a 30-woman free-for-all. Nikki also had some sweet support from Artem and Matteo that made her emotional.


This week’s special guest on the podcast is comedian and actress Anjelah Johnson-Reyes, who’s also on the cast of “The Real Dirty Dancing” on Fox with Brie.


Nikki & Brie have been fans of Anjelah for a long time, and now all of their paths cross on this episode of the podcast. Anjelah talks about her unique path to success on stage and in front of the camera, pushing herself to try something new with “The New Dirty Dancing,” how becoming an NFL cheerleader changed her life and set her on the road to stardom.


Anjelah also tells The Bellas about cyberstalking her husband two years before they went on their first date and how she knew their relationship was meant to be, how he inspired her character of Bon Qui Qui, a possible collaboration with Nikki Fresh, and Anjelah’s special way to work through disagreements with her husband that involves a Bruno Mars song.


Watch Anjelah and Brie compete on “The Real Dirty Dancing” Tuesday nights at 9/8c on Fox.
