Nikki Bella, The Total Bellas star, just revealed huge secrets she’s been keeping in this week’s episode of the show.
According to the 35-year-old, her body can no longer handle the travel and the constant wear and tear so she will be retiring from the WWE. She was part of the Raw brand, having made her debut on SmackDown in November 2008.
The former Dancing With the Stars competitor first realized she needed to be done with the sport after a recent tour in Europe.
“[The tour] was good but I just feel like I’m too old for that travel,” she said in the recent episode.
“The travel was really really rough. So, I realized, I was like, ‘why am I doing this?’ I don’t feel good.”
She added, “I really am ready to hang up the jersey, like I can say it fully.”
Nikki’s twin sister, Brie, also announced her retirement earlier this month. Prior to working with WWE, the twins were on Meet My Folks, and they appeared in a couple of music videos.
Now that Nikki is done with wrestling, she hopes to focus on starting a fashion brand.
“Here’s to closing one chapter and the next one opening.”
But, that’s not the only announcement she made during the season finale of Total Bellas.
Along with revealing her retirement, Nikki shared HUGE dating news — she’s seeing her Dancing With the Stars partner, Artem Chigvintsev.
She shared a photo of the couple on Instagram shortly after the episode aired.
“Well after that season finale. First thing I’ll be talking about this Wednesday… oh and all those paparazzi photos (thanks for all the great shots and smashing my food lol),” she captioned the sweet picture.
