Following Bella's surgery that fused together a number of disks in her spine, fans have been speculating about whether the injury was career-ending for the Divas champion.

As far as her twin sister, Brie Bella, is concerned, it should be.

In a new clip from Tuesday's episode of Total Divas, Brie can be seen giving Nikki some post-surgery advice, even though it probably isn't the advice Nikki wants to hear right now.

"I think your health is the most important and you should put that first," Brie says. "It's not about your next two weeks or your next two months or being the longest-reigning Divas champion. It's about your next 20 to 40 years and you feeling good, and your health."

She continues, "She needs to take care of her injury. If it was me, I would not sacrifice my body."

But Brie isn't the only one weighing in on Nikki's future post-surgery. The twins' mom, Kathy, also had some advice for Nikki, and it wasn't the same as what Brie had to say.

"Don't misunderstand me, but you will never have this accomplishment again of being the longest-running Diva," Kathy tells Nikki. "So find out what your doctor says, and then, if you can still wrestle with some adjustments in your style, then bam."

Nikki underwent the surgery in January, and estimated at the time that her recovery would have her sidelined for anywhere from a few weeks to six months. The new clip reveals that she's still struggling with pain in her neck, and needs to do stretching exercises to help relieve it.
