The Minnesota Twins are currently in the process of opposing WWE’s trademark of the “Bella Twins,” according to PWInsider.com.

Nikki and Brie Bella, born Nicole and Brianna Garcia-Colace joined the WWE in 2007. The WWE named them the Bella Twins and trademarked the name, which is a very common practice from the company.

The Twins have apparently taken offense to this trademark and have decided to oppose it. The Twins have filed for an extension in the opposition and have until Feb. 12 to make the opposition official or ask for another extension.
