Brie Bella recently spoke with the Mirror newspaper to promote WWE Total Divas. The full interview is here, but here’s what she had to say about Bryan’s recovery.
One of the main things we’ll see you having to deal with is the career threatening injury Bryan has suffered. How is he doing?
“You know he’s doing really well, he is, but it has been very hard. This injury unlike any other has just been the hardest because in the past we at least knew ‘okay it’s surgery, this long to recover’, he unfortunately had a relapse, but then we knew how long it would be to recover after the relapse. But with this one it’s so unclear and that’s the hard thing.
“As a wife, to put myself away from wrestling, as a wife it’s so hard to see your husband go through this. I mean, you know when doctors are starting to think, and you see his dreams come crashing down, it breaks my heart. To the point where I wish I was in his position and he was in mine because I hate seeing him like that.
“But my husband has so much fight in him and he tells me every day ‘I’m getting back in that ring, just you watch’ and I’m like ‘oh I bet you will’. I have his support 100% and I really think he will get back in there, I really do. He doesn’t see it any other way.”
Season four of Total Divas returns on Sunday 12 July at 6pm. You can watch E! on Sky 151, Virgin 156, BT and TalkTalk
