Brie Bella has left the ring.
We reported back in February that Brie Bella had been thinking about retiring this year, but was unsure of exactly when. Brie announced on her Instagram account that she is stepping away from the ring and retiring in part of her husband Daniel Bryan's retirement and his reported health issues.
These women made my last night feel sooo special. To the #BellaArmy to every women I got in the ring with, to @wwe for living the dream...to my husband @bryanldanielson who taught me everything.. I love you all and I'm forever grateful!!! #Wrestlemania #briemode 😭😘❤️💪🏼 #mamabellamode

Brie wrestled her last match at WrestleMania 32 this past Sunday and celebrated her victory with her friends and sister in the middle of the ring, giving her her own WrestleMania moment. Brie's retirement was not covered or even mentioned at WrestleMania because it will play out on the Total Divas television program.
