During this week’s episode of Talking Smack, they did an angle with Natalya attacking Nikki Bella. Following the angle, Daniel Bryan mixed in work and shoot and talked about her neck surgery. He said, “just in the last couple of weeks, she’s been feeling this tingling down her arm. I went through that when I came back from my neck surgery.”
Nikki Bella and John Cena are scheduled to face The Miz and Maryse at WrestleMania. Although she is downplaying the retirement rumors, there has been talk within WWE about her retiring at WrestleMania. She may not have a choice in the matter if WWE doctors ultimately decide that it’s not safe for her to continue taking bumps.
Here’s a clip from the attack angle on Talking Smack, followed by John Cena’s reaction:
