Nikki Garcia, who went by Nikki Bella in WWE has been mostly quiet on the wrestling side of things since retiring. But the ring does have a way of luring in former grapples and setting ablaze Internet speculation over potential returns.

The comments from Garcia fuel rumors that she may be returning to wrestling. Nikki and her twin sister, Brie, were joined by Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D., who's a current performer for AEW and has recovered from some health trouble of her own recently as part of an action-packed live edition "The Nikki & Brie Show." That conversation turns wistful when, a few years out of college, nostalgia regarding the wrestling world creeps back in for the Garcia twins.

Baker immediately cut in, saying You don't have to miss it. It's right here for you. Do you want it? As long as I'm right here, serving up competition. This prompted an enthusiastic Nikki to get up and say, "I would come out of retirement for you," while Baker seemed just as excited in response with the line, "There is nothing I'd love more." Brie sat in her chair, looking on during the back-and-forth exchange that was happening in front of them.

Nikki Garcia's Ring Return

Nikki Garcia returning to the ring has long been a talking point; after seeing Mercedes Mone make her AEW debut, it raised eyebrows. It is Mone's recent war of words with Baker after Forbidden Door, AEW's latest pay-per-view event which Garcia seems to find the most relatable and revealing about her continued relationship crisis with the sport.

Garcia offered a more succinct response about the potential return later in her interview, but before going there these kind headlines practically write themselves! I do hope I can comeback in a few years," she declared, invoking what would likely be the pro wrestling equivalent of Michael Jordan returning to basketball at 38.

It shows her love for wrestling, while also playing it up to the fans that down the line she and Britt Baker could meet in a singles confrontation as AEW continues to shape into something special.
