Just a couple of weeks after Brie Bella announced her retirement from the ring, her sister Nikki has also announced that her days in the ring have come to an end.
As seen on this week’s episode of Total Bellas, Nikki said her last match was against Ronda Rousey last October at the Evolution pay-per-view. She says she is retiring because she wants to focus on her business.
“I feel like I’m too old for that travel,” Nikki said about the last WWE tour. “I really am ready to hang up the jersey. I can say it fully.”
Nikki said she had time to think after the last European tour and she’s ready to “take Nikki Bella into a new direction.”
During the same episode, Nikki confirmed her romantic relationship with Artem Chigvintsev. In the media, she has been saying they were just friends but it’s been known for months that they’ve been dating, including a date in France towards the end of 2018.
