Former WWE Divas champion, Brie Bella, is now officially retired from in-ring competition. Brie made statements to the effect on Sunday’s episode of Total Bellas.

“I decided that after Evolution, I’m gonna be fully retired,” she said on the episode. “Fully done.” I love WWE, but the one thing I learned is that I can’t do everything. I just can’t.”

Brie would later say that wishing to have another baby with husband, Daniel Bryan, played a role in her decision.

“I know a couple of months ago I told you I wasn’t ready for baby number two because I have a lot on my plate,” Brie said. “But I’ve been thinking about it a lot and I think the comeback really made me realize that I am actually ready. And I do want Birdie and our next baby to be close in age.”
