Nikki Bella retired from in-ring competition, but she has teased a comeback several times. Her neck is getting stronger and she is always working toward her various goals. It seems that one dream of returning to the squared circle just isn’t going to happen.
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.”
Nikki Bella and her sister Brie are WWE Hall of Famers, and they both accomplished a lot in the company that they can be very proud of. You can never say never regarding some kind of television return, but it might not be a good idea to hold your breath about another in-ring run for Nikki Bella.
