Nikki Bella has a cyst on her brain.
The ‘Total Bellas’ star and professional wrestler announced she was retiring from the WWE earlier this year, and has now revealed the difficult decision came as she has been battling ill health, including a “herniated disc”, and a cyst in her brain.
Speaking on ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’ alongside her twin sister Brie Bella on Wednesday, June 19, she said: “For me, I really wanted to go back and fight for the tag titles. I’ve always had my neck issues and after neck surgery, it hasn’t been OK. I feel like I needed to get a checkup before we went back for the tag titles.
“The results came back and I herniated the disc above where I had surgery, I have all this inflammation around the metal and then I have a cyst on my brain. They were like, ‘You’re done, no more,’ so I didn’t get a choice, which sucks.”
And the following day, the 35-year-old star explained to TMZ that the cyst is thankfully benign, but it has still been “scary” for her to deal with.
