Nikki Bella is off promoting the new season of Total Bellas, but she's not done inside the WWE ring if you ask her.
Nikki has been out of action since this year's WrestleMania 33 event, where now-fiance John Cena proposed to her after the duo defeated The Miz and Maryse. According to Nikki, she wants to return alongside her twin sister.
"I really want to make a comeback with Brie," Nikki admitted to Inside the Ropes. "I'm obviously still waiting on my neck to heal, so 2018 is going to be time we come back. I'd like 2017, but I don't know if that can happen. That's the thing that sucks about bones. It's like 'grow! come on.'"
Brie last appeared in victorious fashion at WrestleMania 32, where we saw Nikki bid her a WWE farewell just months after neck surgery. Nikki said that the surgery will prevent her from ever returning to the ring on a full-time basis.
"Unfortunately because of my neck, my surgeon doesn't even want me to come back. But he said you definitely can't ever be full-time again. We saw that when I came back at Summerslam and went full-time until WrestleMania, I ended up getting injured two weeks before that. It's tough on my body," said Nikki Bella.
