    This Sunday, Brie Bella will face off against Stephanie McMahon in SummerSlam in what is certain to be the Divas match heard around the world!

    Both are of WWE royalty, with Brie married to WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan and the sister of Nikki Bella, while Stephanie is CBO of WWE and daughter of WWE founder Vince McMahon. In other words, her family made the WWE what it is today. Oh, and did we forget to mention that she's also married to Triple H?

    If you had mentioned to Brie two years ago that she would be fighting against her own boss in the ring, she would have laughed it off as nothing more than a fantasy. But now it has become a reality that she is ready to face and has been training hard for.

    "I've been doing more of a CrossFit workout just because I haven't been in the ring for two months," Brie said. "So the one thing about ring conditioning is that we're taking bumps, lifting up girls. So for me it's like doing heavy weights, sprinting, then coming back to do more weights is how you condition your body and your nerves. Staples Center is sold out and there are millions of people that will be watching so nerves will be high."

    Stephanie has also been busy preparing for SummerSlam, and given the fact that she hasn't stepped foot into the ring in over ten years, there is a long road ahead of her—a road that she is prepared to go down, either way.

    "It's very challenging," Stephanie explained. "I've been to our performance center and I've been training there to try to get reacclimated to the wrestling ring which is a very unusual space. I've been working with our strength and conditioning coach who has really amped up my training, and I'm just doing everything I can with fitness and diet. It's been fun and challenging and I've done everything I can to be prepared for Sunday."

    Who do you think will come out on top? The Bella twin or the boss's daughter?

    Tune-in to the WWE Network and pay-per-view this Sunday at 8 p.m ET/5 p.m. PT for WWE SummerSlam and tune in to the Total Divas season premiere Sunday, Sept. 7, at 9/8c on E!
