Nikki Bella‘s nagging neck and back injury may be more serious than previously thought.
Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting on the injury, stating that the combined effects of discs that are pushing on Nikki’s spinal cord and extra fluid in her central nervous system could have paralyzed her had she taken one wrong bump.
The report also states that Nikki is trying to avoid surgery in the hope that “constant rehabilitation” will heal the injury. It is said that she’s doing her rehab exercises up to eight times a day.
There’s still no official timetable in place for Nikki’s return to the ring.
