Nikki Bella has revealed that the cyst which was found on her brain is benign. Phew!
The former WWE Diva dropped a bombshell on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, claiming she can't wrestle anymore because of a neck issue, as well as a brain cyst.
The revelation prompted quite the reaction from wrestling fans on social media, with thousands of "Prayers Up" comments following her announcement. But, speaking to TMZ in the wake of her appearance on Jimmy Fallon's show, the 35-year-old would reveal that the cyst is not life-threatening.
"They found a cyst in my brain which thank God it’s benign," she said.
"It’s super scary, of course," she replied after being asked how scary the waiting process was. "It’s just something you’re never gonna hear. But I’m so grateful. I’m grateful for my health, I’m grateful that it’s benign. It’s something you have to watch out for for the rest of your life, because you never know how it can change. I’m definitely grateful because I know people go through it worse. But it was definitely really scary and it also sucks at the same time because it just keeps me out of the ring.
"Go to your doctors, get checked up, get your blood taken. I know it can be scary but you need to know what’s wrong with you. And trust your gut. If you don’t feel right, go get it handled.”
Having initially claimed that her wrestling career is "done", Nikki told TMZ she believes in miracles and isn't ruling anything out.
"I believe in miracles, so you never know," she declared. "We'll see what the man upstairs has in store for me."
