Nia is still listed on WWE.com, right next to Neville ironically (who is also in an apparent dispute with WWE and inactive the last two weeks).

Ignore the hooded gentleman creeping up behind her; he’s apparent a furniture mover, not burglarizing her home in the midst of a YouTube video shoot. She said when she tried training recently, she couldn’t do ab work at all. Her doctor said she can’t train yet because she underwent a C-section and she hasn’t fully healed yet. She talked about training for her return to the ring starting in November. “Whether the boss likes it or not, I am making a comeback,” she said. She said she is aiming for a return to the ring in January 2018. She said fans haven’t seen the last of the Bella Twins. She said she felt she could handle caring for their baby alone, but when Bryan is on the road, she sometimes thinks help would be good.
