Former WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella has been out of action for most of 2016 due to a serious neck injury that required major surgery at the end of January. Doctors told her a few months ago that she would never be able to return to the ring on a full-time basis again, but it seems like Nikki has other plans.
She’s been training hard trying to get back to in-ring shape and revealed on Twitter today that she’s been training with her brother-in-law Daniel Bryan. Nikki also noted that Bryan has been helping her with a new finishing move, since her old “Rack Attack” finisher was the main cause for her neck injury in the first place.
Yesterday trained w/ @WWEDanielBryan Learned a lot technically & helped w/my finisher Lucky 2 have him as a coach! Total wrestling genius! N

Nikki also took to Instagram to praise Bryan’s technical prowess as well as her future. Her “July can’t come quick enough” comment is in reference to a CAT scan she has scheduled in July in order to see if the bone in her neck has fused. If all goes well after her CAT scan in July, she can (as she mentions) ramp up her training with Bryan.
