Nikki Bella Announces She’s Retired From Wrestling For Life

Nikki Bella retired from in-ring competition in March of 2019, but she has since teased a comeback several times, But for as hopeful as Nikki has been in previous interviews, her latest comments on the Sippin’ The Tea podcast made it sound like a comeback is incredibly unlikely. 

While speaking to Ariane Andrew’s Sippin’ The Tea, Nikki Bella discussed her current career. She would love to have another run in the ring, but her doctor said that she is benched for life due to her previous neck damage.

“I would love one day, like when Matteo’s maybe three, and he knows it, to have my son be ringside while his mom kicks ass. 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.”

“She went on to note that she is very content with her life right now, saying, “I love waking up in the sun comes behind the mountains and it shoots on the vineyards and I just stare at it every morning, because Mateo has me up at 5 AM, and [I love seeing] how the sun sets. I know I’m where my soul is meant to be. The wine industry, winemaking, and anything with wine, I’m like happy It’s my happy place.”

“You just kind of evolve differently. We’re gonna always have a love for professional wrestling. It was a huge part of our lives, and it was such a great time traveling the world, and getting the ring, but for me, I just feel like I’m in such a different place in my life and a place I really love. 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.”

The Bellas have left their mark on the wrestling world and have opened the door for many women who are currently in the business. If the WWE Hall of Famer never step foot in the ring again there would be no doubt that they could always work behind the scenes for any company.
