On the most recent edition of The Bellas Podcast, Nikki and Brie Bella reveal canceled plans that could explain some of WWE’s booking decisions regarding the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.
So 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 — it was gonna be a lot of fun, really excited and you know, 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, ‘Brie, I feel off’. Like, my head doesn’t feel right and I just kept feeling off and I even told her, ‘Do you think I’m just super unhealthy?’ But I live a very healthy lifestyle but I couldn’t figure it out.
Nikki Bella has since revealed that she’s retired from in-ring competition due to medical wear and tear, which put the kibosh on any return for the pair. It was truly a last minute call, as the Bellas state that they had their gear ready and were in New York for the SmackDown after WrestleMania.
