Dancing With the Stars' season 25 premiere went a little better for Nikki Bella than it did for her partner, Artem Chigvintsev.
ET's Cameron Mathison caught up with the pair after their tango performance, where they opened up about that crazy body slam.
"The body slam actually didn't [hurt during practice]," Chigvintsev revealed. "I mean, it hurt, but it didn't hurt like this, and the end of the routine, that hurt because this floor is wooden... it doesn't bounce."
"I got such an adrenaline rush and lifted him even higher than usual," Bella confessed, adding that she pinned Chigvintsev down at the end of their performance because "it just felt right."
"Wrestling, I've been dong it for 10 years. I know it. It's a part of me," she explained. "I just started learning this for two weeks, and so to come out here and be fearless Nikki, but show I have dance moves, it's so scary."
"I can do this, but then all of the sudden, chin up, form, I'm like, 'What?' And then I'm, like, out of my comfort zone. Now I'm freaking out," she added.
Bella's fiance, John Cena, gave her a sweet shout-out after the show, but when will he finally make it to the ballroom?
"In a few weeks!" Bella shared. "He has No Mercy this Sunday, so he's been prepping for that. He just flew in from China, so once he kicks Roman Reign's butt, he'll make his way over here."
