If we’re to believe Nikki Bella, her big return at SummerSlam this past Sunday night (Aug. 21, 2016) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York was a surprise not just to the fans but even the wrestlers she was in a match with:
This is me while I waited on a bus to surprise everyone, even my partners & opponents last night at SummerSlam. 7 months ago when I had surgery I hoped for that day to come but was told it wouldn't. I prayed and trained so hard that it would. I just knew that I couldn't have already had my ending in the ring. I just wouldn't accept it. The @wwe universe keeps me alive. You give me energy that no one else can give me. You challenge me. You make me want to be better. It's crazy what you do to me. And the welcome Brooklyn gave me made me hold in tears. I was just blown away. I'm excited to make magic happen at #smackdown I'm excited to be back! Im@excited to show everyone that the impossible is truly possible! My heart and passion is in that ring... Always will be! Love you all! #stayfearless #fearlessnikki #nevergiveup
Cool, if true.
Reports have indicated she’ll be a part-time star because of issues with her neck, but with Bayley getting called up to Monday Night Raw, SmackDown Live, where she will be featured, needs the star power in the women’s division.
Even if she can’t be there every week.
Happy to have her back in the fold?
