Nikki Bella is ready to take her career in a new direction.
The wrestling star announced her retirement from the WWE on the season finale of "Total Bellas."
The 35-year-old was at dinner with her family on the reality TV series when she began to explain how she came to his decision. She said that being a part of WWE European's intense schedule helped her realize she's ready to hang up her jersey.
“The [European] tour was good but I feel like I’m too old for the travel, the travel was really rough,” Bella explained. “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.”
