Nikki Bella is dealing with some pain.
The Divas Champion was held out from WWE live events this weekend due to an apparent back injury, which she eventually acknowledged on her Twitter account.
She wrote, “Wish we were at #TeenChoiceAwards but rehabbing the back & Bri’s at #WWELive We’re so beyond honored 2 be nominated 4 best female athlete! N.”

F4WOnline.com reported last month that Nikki had been working with a partially separated shoulder, which explained why she had been competing in tag team bouts on television.
She appeared on Raw last week teaming with fellow Team Bella members Alicia Fox and her sister Brie in a victory over Team B.A.D’s Tamina Snuka, Sasha Banks, and Naomi.
Nikki is still scheduled to be a part of the Three Team Elimination Match with Team Bella against Team B.A.D and Team PCB (Paige, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch) at SummerSlam on Aug. 23 at the Barclays Center.
Her Divas Championship stands at 266 days of Sunday, which puts her second all-time in company history behind AJ Lee and her 295 days.
