It’s always nice to know what’s up. Earlier this week, Nikki and Brie Bella appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where they discussed a number of topics. One of them was the in-ring career of both of them.
During the interview, it was confirmed that Brie had retired due to becoming a mother. However, it was further revealed that Nikki would be retiring due to medical reasons. Below is what she had to say:
“I really wanted to go back and fight for the tag titles,” Bella told Fallon. “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.
“Then it came back that I herniated the disk above where I had surgery, I have all this inflammation around the metal, and then I have a cyst on my brain,” Bella said. “So they were like, ‘You’re done, no more, you’re out.'”
