After Nikki Bella recently announced her retirement from professional wrestling, The Bella Twins revealed they were originally set for a major comeback.
Nikki and Brie discussed the fact that it was originally planned for them to return after WrestleMania 35 during their latest episode of The Bellas Podcast.
“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.”
“The SmackDown after WrestleMania. I mean, we had it all planned out. We were in New York thinking it’s still happening.”
