We all know by now that Nikki Bella has missed the better part of a year due to a neck issue that required surgery. The hope has been that she could return this summer, but it truly all hinged on how she healed and in what way she healed as well. If all things go according to plan, the thought is that we could see her make her return to the ring in July. Despite this, she will never be back full-time. Doctors have mentioned that she can do off and on work, but nothing like before.

Many asked what actually caused her neck issue, as she was working matches alright. Her finishing move, the “rack attack,” was the reason for the injury. It makes total sense when you see how the move is done. Nikki Bella will put a girl on her shoulders in a torture rack hold, only to then fall on her knees to send a shockwave upon landing. The hope in the move is that the force would then hurt the girl upon landing. Of course, in real life, the person who took the brunt of the move was actually Nikki herself.

She would take all the force of a girl’s body on her upper back/neck area each time she landed. While it looked like it hurt her opponent, it actually did more long-term damage to Nikki herself. With all of this said, Nikki can no longer do her finishing move. This meant that if she was cleared to return to the ring, she would need a new finish. Of course, she does have her elbow smash move, but most feel she could stand to add more moves to her move-set, especially something new.
