Nikki Bella will not be wrestling ever again. She might tease a return to the ring because the itch might always be there to compete, however, her time is done and for good reason.

While speaking to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Nikki revealed the extent of her injuries. She not only had to have neck surgery, which still leaves her neck not feeling okay, but she also has a herniated disc and 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 feel like I needed to get that check up 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,”

These is a very serious diagnosis. Therefore, it’s no wonder why she had to hang up her wrestling boots for good.


Nikki Bella is still working out and keeping in shape, but she’s not preparing for bumps anymore. Instead, she’s investing her time and energy into her outside ventures which includes her wine brand and appearing in a confirmed 5th season of Total Bellas.
