Brie Bella will be retiring sooner than she originally planned. According to ProWrestlingSheet.com, the Bella Twin will be hanging up her boots following the post-WrestleMania edition of Raw on Apr. 4.
Sources with direct knowledge tell the website there is no bad blood between WWE and Daniel Bryan — the recent appearances he pulled out of are due to a health issue.
It’s unclear what the issue is at this point, but they were told it’s the reason Brie wasn’t at Raw this week.
All of this has caused Brie to speed up her retirement plans — she had previously said she’d retire over the summer — and now she wants to focus on starting a family.
Brie will still be featured in WWE programming — like Total Divas and guest starring on WWE Network shows — but she’ll no longer be stepping into the ring as a full-time wrestler. The Bella Twin will instead work in an ambassador role for the company.
It is not known whether she’ll receive promo time to say goodbye. Their sources say she’s just hoping to have one final blow off match against Lana to cap off their feud.
