Nikki Bella Reveals She Has Cyst on Her Brain, Confirms Wrestling Career is Over
During an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Nikki Bella said that she and sister Brie wanted to return to WWE to wrestle for the Women’s Tag Team Titles. However, that will not be happening because of her health issues. Nikki confirmed that her WWE in-ring career is over because of her neck issues. She also revealed that she has a cyst on her brain.

"For me, I really wanted to go back and fight for the tag titles," Nikki stated. "I've always had my neck issues and after neck surgery, it hasn't been OK. I feel like I needed to get a checkup before we went back for the tag titles. The results came back and I herniated the disc above where I had surgery, I have all this inflammation around the metal and then I have a cyst on my brain. So they were like, 'you're done, no more.' So I didn't get a choice, which sucks."

In April, Nikki explained how everything in her life was a lot to handle when it came to returning to the ring. She also said anything is possible when it comes to wrestling.

"Having that comeback, filming Total Bellas, running three companies and then fighting Ronda Rousey and beating up my body… I just remember when we were sitting there on our 35th birthday. I just sat there and said to myself that I was done," Nikki continued. "I started thinking about my health and my age. I need to put more focus on my companies, so honestly, that was the reason why I retired. This is the thing about WWE though; the doors are truly never closed."

Nikki and Brie have not appeared 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.

During the interview, Nikki and Brie also promoted their podcast and talked about Game of Thrones. They also confirmed that Total Bellas is returning soon.
