Nikki Bella said that she and sister Brie had every intention to return to wrestling for WWE for the Women’s Tag Team Titles. However, that has proven to be an impossibility because of her newly-discovered health issues. Nikki confirmed during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon that her WWE in-ring career has come to an end because of her neck issues. She also revealed that she has a cyst on her brain:
“I really wanted to go back and fight for the tag titles. I’ve always had my neck issues, and after neck surgery, it hasn’t been ok. I felt like I needed to get that checkup before we went back for the tag titles. I herniated the disc above where I had surgery. I had all this inflammation around the metal, and I have a cyst on my brain.”
Nikki and Brie have not been seen on WWE television since last October when Brie was in Nikki’s corner for her match against Ronda Rousey on the Evolution pay-per-view. They announced their in-ring retirement a few months ago on Total Bellas.
Nikki also spoke of Brie’s and her podcast and also confirmed that Total Bellas is returning soon.
