Nikki Bella announced her retirement from WWE in-ring action on Sunday’s season finale of Total Bellas. She cited travel as one of the reasons behind her decision.
Powell’s POV: Brie Bella announced her in-ring retirement on a previous episode of the reality show. So both Bellas are retired from in-ring action, but they will both continue to work for the company via the reality shows and other projects. Of course, this is pro wrestling and the announcements were made on reality television shows, so never say never.
