The "Diva Era" has well-and-truly ended as Nikki Bella has followed in her sister Brie's footsteps and announced her retirement from the wrestling ring. Bella stated that her body feels beat up, and that she's ready to shift her focus onto other endeavors in her life, mainly her fashion brand.
Despite her new rumored beau, during the episode, Bella revealed that she feels like she's "just fully starting my true grieving and healing process" over her years-long relationship with her former fiance. "So, I realized, I was like, 'why am I doing this?' I don't feel good". I really am ready to hang up the jersey. "I can say it fully".
The 35-year-old was at dinner with her family on the reality TV series when she began to explain how she came to his decision. "First thing I'll be talking about this Wednesday... oh and all those paparazzi photos (thanks for all the great shots and smashing my food lol) Swipe up in my IG story".
