The other person signed on to compete for 'DWTS' Season 25 will be Drew Scott who is on the HGTV show "Property Brothers."

Drew is a 39-year-old real estate expert who works with his twin brother Jonathan to help couples turn "fixer-upper houses" into their dream homes. The HGTV series has been going on since 2011 and is a hit with fans around the country.

As WWE fans know, the 33-year-old Nikki Bella isn't just a former champion in professional wrestling, but she's also engaged to be married to fellow WWE superstar John Cena. The two wrestled in a match at "WrestleMania 33" against the Miz and his wife Maryse with Cena and Nikki getting the win.

After the match, Cena told a story about he and Nikki before proposing to her. She said "Yes" of course.

'DWTS' & WWE?

There had been WWE rumors going around that Nikki Bella might return to the ring soon. She had been competing as a member of the "SmackDown Live" women's division up through her "WrestleMania 33" match with Cena. After that, Nikki has been on a hiatus planning her future wedding. Whether or not she gets back to the WWE ring, will remain to be seen. If it happens it probably will be after her stint on the "DWTS" show. There have also been rumors that her twin sister Brie Bella has been training for a WWE comeback after giving birth several months ago to her and husband Daniel Bryan's first child.

Nikki Bella will be the first professional wrestler to appear on the show since fellow WWE star Chris Jericho attempted it. Jericho was a contestant during "Dancing With the Stars" Season 12. Jericho was partnered with professional dancer Cheryl Burke and eliminated in the sixth week of the competition.

It's unknown at this point which dancing professional Nikki Bella will be paired with. However, one has to wonder if she will incorporate that famous hip gyration shake into one of her dance routines.
