WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella has admitted that there is practically zero chance of her making an in-ring return.
Nikki was forced to retire in 2019 due to health reasons, but she is desperate for one last run in the Vince McMahon promotion.
However, the two-time women’s champion has confirmed that doctors have placed her ‘on the retired bench for life’ after suffering from a herniated disc and brain cyst as a result of her 12-year wrestling career.
The former Diva Champion wants to go after the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship with her twin sister Brie, who has also retired from professional wrestling.
However, the 37-year-old is accepting the situation and focusing on motherhood after giving birth to son Matteo with fiancé Artem Chigvintsev last year.
The reality star has also turned her attention to other passions and business projects, such as winemaking.
Nikki said during an edition of sippin’ tea show, which she participated in with Bree: “I’d love one day, like when Matteo is maybe three, and he knows it, to put my son in the ring while his mom kicks ass.
“That would be amazing to me. But because he’s my everything, I have to listen to the doctors and, until now, they’ve put me on the retired bench for the rest of my life.

“So, it would take a lot of scans, X-rays, and all this different stuff for them to really approve me to do a run and so it would be impossible – it would be years down the road.
“I love to wake up when the mountains come behind and it shoots over the vineyards and I look at it every morning, because Matteo wakes me up at 5 in the morning, and [seeing] How does it set.
“I know I’m where my soul should be. Anything with the wine industry, winemaking, and wine, I’m happy. It’s my place of happiness.”
Nikki has shared the ring with some of the biggest names in professional wrestling history, such as Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch, British Superstar Page and more.
The California native was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year along with her sister Brie.
