• Interesting Title Feud Cancelled Due To Nikki Bella’s Injury
During a recent interview with WrestlingNewsCo, former WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella revealed WWE planned on doing The IIconics vs. The Bella Twins for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles after WrestleMania 35, but plans were nixed due to Nikki’s injuries.
Below is what Nikki said:
“Brie and I, we were gonna come back and fight for the tag titles after WrestleMania and we were gonna go against The IIconics for a few months.
Deep down inside, I kept having this weird feeling that I needed to get an x-ray on my neck because for a while I wasn’t feeling okay. Brie knows that in December after Evolution, I just kept telling her that I feel off and my head doesn’t feel right.”
Nikki recently revealed that doctors found a cyst on her brain, but it’s benign.
Nikki is now officially retired from in-ring competition.
