Nikki Bella is determined to prove she's more than just ''muscles and headlocks'' on 'Dancing with the Stars'.

The 33-year-old WWE star is best-known across the world for her athletic moves in the ring, but Nikki is now keen to display her softer, more elegant side on the popular TV show.

She said: ''I'm not just muscles and headlocks. I need to prove to people that there is this elegant woman in here.''

Nikki - who is engaged to fellow wrestling star John Cena - says her grandmother has played a huge role in helping to shape the most feminine aspects of her personality.

In fact, the athletic star admitted she would be even more of a ''tomboy'' if it wasn't for her influence.

She shared: ''If I didn't have her as a big influence in my life I would be like a bigger tomboy than I already am. My nana's elegant, classy and the most amazing woman that's ever walked this earth.''

And while Nikki is currently missing the rough and tumble of the WWE, she is relishing the 'Dancing with the Stars' experience, likening it to appearing in a Broadway production.

Speaking after taking to the dance floor with her professional partner Artem Chigvintsev, Nikki said: ''I mean, I miss the throwing down on the floor, but I like seeing this side.

''It felt great. I felt like I was just on Broadway, like I was living this movie.''

Meanwhile, Nikki - who has been dating John since 2012 - recently revealed she wants ''caviar and champagne'' for her bachelorette party.

The 'Total Divas' star insisted her pre-wedding celebration will be a classy affair as she wants to feel like ''Princess Grace Kelly'' ahead of her big day.

She explained: ''I don't want a sash, I don't want a crown, I don't want vulgar stuff.

''I want to feel like Princess Grace Kelly and I want caviar and I want to sip champagne.''
