It's the news no WWE Superstar wants to hear, that they're going to be out for a certain amount of time due to injury.
However, the even worse news that no one wants to hear either is that the injury they have has the potential to be career-ending.

"I have basically a broken neck, a pretty bad herniated disk," Nikki told E!. "What makes mine a little bit difficult than most people is that I have some disk behind my vertebrae so with a lot of prayers we're gonna pray that the doctors can get the piece behind my vertebrae with just a bone fusion."
The surgery will take two hours and Bella is expected to be in the hospital for a couple of days. She also recognises that her injury could be career-ending.
She said: "There is a potential that this is career-ending. We will only know that when I get out of surgery on Wednesday and then basically how the bone heals Wednesday. So that's been tough but I truly have such hope that I will get to compete in that ring another day, I really do."
Her finisher, the Rack Attack, may have contributed towards her injury, as she holds fellow Divas on the back of her neck and then drops to her knees, so she is not allowed to use that move anymore, but she is optimistic that she can return to the ring soon.
"In six months time is when I will get that final X-ray to be like, 'Hey look you can get back in that ring and kick some ass," Nikki said.
