• “They’ve put me on the retired bench for life” – WWE Hall Of Famer
WWE Hall of Famers The Bella Twins (Nikki & Brie), who have teased going after the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles, will not be making a return to the ring.
During an interview on Sippin’ the Tea, Nikki Bella ruled out a return to the ring due to health issues:
“I would love one day, like when Matteo’s maybe 3, and he knows it, to have my son be ringside while his mom kicks a$$. That would be amazing to me.
But because he is my everything, I have to listen to the doctors and as of now, they’ve put me on the retired bench for life.
So, it would take a lot of scans, x-rays, and all this different stuff for them to actually approve me to have a run and so that would be unlikely – that will be years down the road.”
Brie Bella added the following:
“We’re gonna be 38 in November and I’m like, you know too, for us to be winemakers and well, I can’t imagine taking a bump right now.”
A couple of years ago, Nikki revealed that a cyst was found in her brain, which ended her in-ring career.
Brie’s final match took place on the October 8, 2018 episode of RAW, where she teamed up with Nikki & Ronda Rousey to defeat The Riott Squad.
Nikki’s final televised match took place at the WWE Evolution PPV on October 28, 2018, where she lost to Ronda Rousey in a RAW Women’s Championship match in the main event.
The final match of Nikki’s career wasn’t televised. It took place at a House Show on October 26, 2019, where she teamed up with Natalya to defeat Sarah Logan & Tamina.
The Bella Twins were inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2021, as part of the Class Of 2020.
