Brie Bella also announced earlier in the season that she has retired from wrestling as well.
Bella and Chigvintsev didn't become an item during the 25th season of the ABC competition because she was still engaged to fiancé John Cena until April 15 of a year ago.
Last year, she ended her longtime relationship with wrestler John Cena. Nikki was later introduced officially and this practice became known as "Twin Magic".
"Being on the European tour, I've had a lot of time to think", she explained. "I still have a long way to go, but honestly, I'm ready for a new me".
"They have a strong attraction to each other, but they're just having fun".
"I'm ready to put the kicks aside and I'm ready too take Nikki Bella into a different direction". It's insane. I never in my life would've thought that, like, I would've had a lot in common with a Russian.
"The travel was really, really rough", she added.
