Nikki Bella has announced her retirement from WWE.
The 35-year-old who made the announcement in the season finale of the reality show Total Bellas joins twin sister Brie Bella in walking away from wrestling.
She announced her decision while at dinner with her family while filming the reality TV series.

“The [European] tour was good, but I feel like I’m too old for the travel, the travel was really rough,” Bella said. “I was like, ‘Why am I doing this? I don’t feel good.’ The girls are doing amazing things over there. I really am ready to hang up the jersey. I can say it fully.”
“I’m ready to put the kicks aside, and I’m ready to take Nikki Bella into a different direction,” Bella added.
Bella has been in the ring for 12 years making her WWE debut back in 2007 and her SmackDown debut in 2008 with her twin sister, Brie Bella.
Additionally, she has won the WWE Divas Championship twice.
The pro wrestler turned reality star will reportedly focus on a clothing line, wine label and a new podcast with sister Brie following her retirement.
