Report: Brie Bella retiring from WWE in April

Friday March 25th, 2016

WWE Diva Brie Bella will retire after the April 4 edition of RAW, Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reports.

While Bella’s in-ring career will end after the first post-Wrestlemania edition of RAW, she stil will be involved in other WWE programming, Satin adds. 

Bella originally said that she planned to retire this summer but is stepping away earlier because her husband, Daniel Bryan, is experiencing some kind of medical issue, according to the report.

Bryan was forced to retire last month due to the side effects of the numerous concussions he suffered during his wrestling career. 

Bella and her sister Nikki wrestled together as The Bella Twins and made their first WWE appearance in 2008. Bella married Bryan in April 2014.
