Nikki Bella is speaking out on a super scary health crisis that has sadly forced her to retire from the WWE.

Earlier this week the professional wrestler stopped by The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, along with her twin sister Brie, for an epic charades showdown with Michael Strahan and host Jimmy Fallon. There was no clear winner as the Bella sisters, and the two men kept arguing over who came out with the most points.

After a lot of ribbing and banter, the topic of conversation turned to the twins retiring from WWE. Brie chose to walk away from the sport to focus on her family, which included trying to give her daughter a sibling.

Nikki, unfortunately, did not have the option to continue with the WWE without her sister. John Cena's ex-fiancé revealed she had a health crisis that will prevent her from stepping back into the ring.

"I herniated the disc above where I had surgery, I have all this inflammation around the metal, and then I have a cyst on my brain. So, they were like, you're done, no more. You're out. So, I didn't get a choice," Nikki revealed.

She didn't go into too much detail, but on Thursday TMZ Sports caught up with her to get a little more information regarding her health issue.

"They found a cyst on my brain, which thank god, it's benign. I'm so grateful for my health," she shared.

The cyst, along with her neck injury, has forced her to retire from the sport she loved dearly. Nikki admits she will have to continue to monitor the cyst on her brain for the rest of her life.

However, she is not sweating what could happen in the future but rather is grateful the issue was discovered early on and taught her a valuable lesson. Nikki learned to listen to her gut, as well as her body's aches and pains. She will continue to remind her fans of the lesson to trust your instincts.

Brie and Nikki Bella may have retired from wrestling, but they are not fading away from the spotlight. The two let fans know their E! reality TV show, Total Bellas will be back for a fifth season.

They did not share details regarding the upcoming season, like a premiere date, only that fans should be on the lookout for the show. Do you think Nikki's health crisis will be featured when the reality show returns?
