We noted before how Total Divas and Total Bellas Stars Nikki Bella and Brie Bella started their own podcast dubbed as the Bellas Podcast recently.
In the first episode of their podcast, the two talked about a number of things and Nikki who recently announced her retirement from wrestling also revealed the reason behind it.
Nikki first discussed her recent in-ring return and how hard it was for her. Later she revealed that not all details were revealed during her Total Bellas announcement and her neck issues were the reason for her retirement:
“when they showed you that I made the decision [to retire] because I couldn’t hang with the girls in the ring anymore, what they also don’t air—because they never want me to talk about my neck—is … it’s because of my neck.”
For those who don’t know, Nikki Bella underwent a neck surgery back in 2015. While the surgery was a success, it’s said that the neck has still been bothering the former Diva’s Champion ever since and It also reportedly caused her to change her finishing maneuver Rack Attack.
