Over the past few months, The Bella Twins have hinted that they’ll be returning to WWE sooner rather than later, Nikki Bella has revealed that she would have to go through a lengthy process in order to get cleared for any such return.
WWE Hall of Famers Nikki and Brie Bella were recently on the Sippin’ the Tea show with Ariane Andrew, formerly Cameron in WWE, who has herself been speaking about targeting a WWE return – but Nikki Bella has a longer-term plan for any such return.
“I would love one day, like when Matteo’s maybe three, and he knows it, to have my son be ringside while his mom kicks ass. That would be amazing to me. But because he is my everything, I have to listen to the doctors and as of now, they’ve put me on the retired bench for life. So, it would take a lot of scans, x-rays, and all this different stuff for them to actually approve me to have a run and so that would be unlikely — that will be years down the road.”
While doctors have put her “on the retired bench”, Nikki Bella revealed how she’s enjoying life at the moment, and says she’s in her happy place.
“I love waking up in the sun comes behind the mountains and it shoots on the vineyards and I just stare at it every morning, because Mateo has me up at 5 AM, and [I love seeing] how the sun sets. I know I’m where my soul is meant to be. The wine industry, winemaking, and anything with wine, I’m like happy. It’s my happy place.”
Meanwhile, Brie Bella added that wrestling was a huge part of their life and she can’t imagine taking a bump now.
“You just kind of evolve differently. We’re gonna always have a love for professional wrestling. It was a huge part of our lives, and it was such a great time traveling the world, and getting the ring, but for me, I just feel like I’m in such a different place in my life and a place I really love. We’re gonna be 38 in November and I’m like, you know too, for us to be winemakers and well, I can’t imagine taking a bump right now.”
