Bella sat down with Jimmy Fallon this week, explaining health issues forced her to retire from wrestling, including neck issues and a subsequent neck operation.
“I really wanted to go back and fight for the tag titles,” Nikki revealed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. “I’ve had my neck issues, and after neck surgery, it hasn’t been okay. I felt like I needed to get that checkup before we went back for the tag titles.”
“It came back that 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, you’re out.’”
