-On the latest episode of “Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia,” Brie Bella told Garcia that since WWE told him he couldn’t wrestle, he has worked hard to learn about his condition and how to get medically cleared, but it caused issues in their marriage because he was so focused on . “From like, literally, the day they told him he couldn’t do it anymore, he has flown himself all over the United States to all different doctors to figure out… what he could do to help turn that ‘no’ into a ‘yes’,” she said. “There’s been like eight doctors who are like, ‘You can wrestle’… A lot of doctors can’t see why he can’t get in that ring again… and I think [the WWE is] looking at it… He is on such a mission to get back into that WWE ring, it’s crazy, which caused a lot of arguments in our marriage in the beginning, especially when I was pregnant.” Watch the clip on YouTube HERE or listen to the full episode HERE.
