After nearly 18 months since her last match, Brie Bella is finally back in a wrestling ring.
Although nothing is imminent, it appears that Brie is committed to making her return to competition. She recently posted a photo on Twitter with her "trainers" Daniel Bryan, Nia Jax and her sister, Nikki.

Last month, while sitting for a Mattel panel at San Diego Comic-Con Bella expressed her desire to get back by 2018:
"My husband and I talked this week, we actually went kayaking, and he's like 'you know what, Brie, I think we have enough room to get a ring," she said during the panel. "Why don't we start training?' I was like 'yes!' I've been begging him for one. So I have the perfect coach, the General Manager, thank
Bella's not being shy about her comeback as she gives an honest answer when the subject is brought up while speaking with E! News. Bella was also asked if she was planning to have more children with former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan:
"Definitely, but I have to make a comeback to wrestling before. I miss that ring."
Bella was so confident about her comeback, that she told multiple media outlets that this is indeed happening:
Just talked to @BellaTwins at #SDCC and Brie tells me she’s working towards a return to the ring! BRIE MODE ACTIVATED!— Eric Goldman (@TheEricGoldman) July 20, 2017
Her husband, SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan told E! the following:
“I think she’s keeping most of her comeback plans to the ring her own secret. She tells me obviously, but you’ll have to get it from her, I would be very surprised if she never wrestled again.”
For those that have been out of the loop, Bella left WWE to give birth to her and Bryan's first child, a daughter named Birdie Joe Danielson. The couple’s baby girl was born on May 9 at 11:58 p.m., which was past Bella’s original due date of April 30.
Birdie weighed in at 8 pounds, 10 ounces and measures 21 inches long.
WWE and its fans will be waiting anxiously for her big return. Bella has only been the Divas Champion, and in her absence, women's wrestling has vastly changed. When she gets back, she'll be eying the Women's Championship for the first time.
