The "Total Bellas" star took to her account to share a video dedicated to Henry. "What's up Henry, so I just saw your interview on Ariel's podcast and wow, thank you very much," the 35-year-old female wrestler said. "I wanna say, first of all, congrats on your really big win. I would like to think that you know possibly I was a good luck charm meeting you on the flight."
"I'm hoping maybe one day in Arizona you can train me before I get back into that ring because I think you have a few moves that you could show me to really take it to the women," she continued. Before ending her video, she asked Henry for a date. "And hey -- I know you're cutting weight and all but maybe we could grab a drink or I should really send you a bottle of Belle Ridici wine for your victory, so I'll do that," Nikki added.
It arrives after Henry told ESPN's Ariel Helwani that "Nikki Bella's been like my biggest crush." With his biggest smile, he went on to explain that he actually ran into Nikki and her twin sister Brie while on a first class flight where they were seated next to each other. "I was like, 'How am I going to approach this? How am I going to approach this?' " he shared.
In the end, he decided to use his 9-year-old niece, who is a huge fan of Nikki, to start conversation with her. "[Bella] was super nice, I used my niece to talk to her," he said while laughing. "I'm talking about the single one."
