World Wrestling Entertainment champion Nikki Bella shined on her first performance on “Dancing With The Stars” Season 25, adding some wrestling moves to her act. On the season premiere of the reality dance show, she was partnered with Artem Chigvintsev in their fierce rendition of the tango, ABC News reported.

Their tango performance featured multiple head turns, leg raises, and body spins. As they moved around, the stage lights turned fiery red with bursts of flames around them.

They danced to the beat of Pink’s “So What.”

Bella was wearing a bright red two-piece sexy bodysuit, paired with a long skirt overlay. Meanwhile, her dancing partner Chigvintsev wore a matching style of red and black ensemble during Monday night’s episode.

Body slam

By the end of their performance, the WWE diva made some wrestling moves by body slamming her partner on the floor. He laid on the dance floor for a few moments as Bella made her pose, then counted him out just like in a wrestling match.

This “Dancing With The Stars” contender used to star in several wrestling matches on WWE’s SmackDown brand. Her twin sister Brie Bella was watching in the audience area in support of Nikki’s first presentation on the reality show.

“My fiance John Cena is so happy I am doing ‘Dancing With The Stars,’” Bella said in the pre-performance interview. Cena is also a professional wrestler who makes appearances on WWE.

“In the ring, I’m a superhero. On the dance floor, not so much,” the diva also said.

“Dancing With The Stars” Season 25 airs every Monday on ABC.

Paralympian swimmer Victoria Arlen

Paralympic swimmer Victoria Arlen is also among the most sought-after contestants in the new season of the reality competition. She previously competed in the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London, where she won a gold medal.

On the premiere show, Arlen and her partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy danced the cha-cha to the tune of “Born Ready” by Disco Fries featuring Hope Murphy.

She wore a glittering ensemble of the pink sleeveless top and a pair of matching pants.

Unlike her co-stars, Arlen has been diagnosed with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis and transverse myelitis when she was 11 years old, limiting some of her motor skills, ABC News reported. She regularly attends gym classes to practice her ability to walk and move around.

However, during her performance in “Dancing With The Stars,” everything went smoothly with her movements, with a few jumps on stage, some bending and spins.
