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.'”

They also discussed spoiling Game of Thrones for everyone, the future of Total Bellas and more.
