Lars Sullivan Injured
Last week, it had been widely reported that Lars Sullivan had suffered a knee injury. Dave Meltzer has reported that the injury is serious, and could keep Sullivan out 6 to 9 months.

Nikki Bella’s In Ring Career Is Over
Wednesday evening, the Bella Twins made an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Nikki Bella revealed that he in ring career is over due to a cyst on her brain.

I feel like I needed to get that check up before we went back for the tag titles. I herniated the disc above where I had surgery.

Regardless of what you think of them and their in ring ability, their contribution to the WWE Divas division and the the exposure they brought to it cannot be understated. Sending well wishes Nikki’s way
