When WWE Superstar Nikki Bella, 35, revealed that she was forced to retire due to recurring neck problems and having a cyst on her brain, fans were devastated. But the former WWE Divas Champion hasn't sat still since her retirement announcement. Alongside twin sister Brie, she's still starring on Total Divas and Total Bellas- the latter of which the twins are listed as executive producers on. They also have their own wine called Bella Radici, run their clothing line known as Birdiebee, and have a beauty line called Nicole + Brizee. Needless to say, both twins are keeping busy!
Despite her untimely retirement, however, Nikki isn't one to keep fans speculating about a comeback. This was made evident thanks to a video uploaded onto the Bella Twins' Twitter page. The video in question showed Nikki wearing her trademark ring gear (yes, including the backward baseball cap) while at the gym. She couldn't help but remark how it felt to wear her ring gear for the first time in a long while.
"I'm feeling like I need to come out of retirement. Well, I wish ... we all know why I can't," Nikki said in the video. "It feels really damn good to have this back on. I'm feeling like me again ... it feels really good!"
While it's unknown why Nikki filmed and uploaded the video in the first place, her fans- often affectionally referred to as the Bella Army- were quick to offer their hopes for a comeback. Many voiced their wishes for Nikki to return to the ring, if only for one last time. But others were annoyed (be it jokingly or not) about Nikki teasing such a thing to her followers.
But anyone who's followed Nikki's health issues knows that the reality TV star and businesswoman isn't returning to the ring anytime soon. Truthfully, it appears as though she'll never wrestle another match ever again. While that will certainly break her fans' hearts, what matters more is Nikki living her best life however she sees fit. After a long and successful WWE career alongside her twin sister Brie, she deserves to enjoy her retirement from the ring.
