Nikki wrestled her final matches in WWE during the November 2018 European tour, working three matches against Natalya and three matches against "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey for the RAW Women's Championship.

She says she is retiring because she wants to focus on her business.

Nikki said she had time to think after the last European tour and she's ready to "take Nikki Bella into a new direction". She noted it was during that tour when she started having regrets about continuing to wrestle.

"[The tour] was good but I just feel like I'm too old for that travel". "That travel was really, really rough". I really am ready to hang up the jersey.

Last week on Total Bellas, Brie Bella announced her retirement from in-ring competition and now her sister Nikki Bella is following suit. In the clip, which can be found below, she makes it clear that her body just can't handle the punishment anymore and that it's time to move on. It's making me realize I'm ready to fold the jersey and put it away. That announcement also followed the WWE Evolution PPV event.

Following the season finale of the show, Nikki and Brie announced that they'll be launching their own podcast and episode one of their show has been released.

We won't have to wait long to hear what they have in store because they are set to premier the first episode this Wednesday. It will be titled The Bellas Podcast.
