At this time, Nikki Bella is on a hiatus from the WWE to heal her neck injuries. After going through the X-ray sessions and MRIs prior to Wrestlemania 33, the doctors advised her to take some time off to recover from the neck concussion. So, she was forced to take a break from the in-ring competition.
There is no hint of how long this sabbatical would end up to. There are chances of her returning if the healing process gets quicker. Or else, there are chances of a delay, as reported previously. She herself stated that her future entirely depends on how the neck bruises improve.
However, at this time, she has given a big update regarding her return. She posted a video on her personal Youtube channel indicating the hiatus might have got cut short. In the post, she was seen threatening her old rival Charlotte who has just been shifted to Smackdown Live.
Nikki Bella stated on the footage that she is done filming the second season of Total Divas and will soon make her comeback to the ring. This time, she will be looking to settle the score against her former nemesis, Charlotte. With this post, it is also being confirmed that neither Nikki’s marriage planning nor Brie’s childbirth will be channeled on-screen.
It might have been the case that this threat might not be legit for now since Nikki was seen out of character on the video. But, at least this has thrown some lights that she would be back into the ring with her hands full with business.
In case you have forgotten, Nikki Bella and Charlotte had quite a memorable rivalry back in 2015. The Queen was the one to dethrone the Bella Queen from her throne after she was brought to the main roster from NXT. The ‘Divas revolution’ started with Charlotte putting an end to Nikki’s reign as the longest reigning Divas champion of all time.

Nikki never got the opportunity to seek her redemption on Charlotte since she was forced to go on a hiatus of almost one year following the neck surgery. The fans have always wanted to see the reincarnation of this one feud and that might be in reserve in the near future.
Charlotte did not take a long time to respond back accepting the challenge.

There are chances that Nikki will be back on Smackdown in due course with her twin sister Brie joining her at a certain point. The Bella Twins will be back on the blue brand to recreate the rivalry against Charlotte.
