A WWE star won’t be returning to the ring just yet.

On November 9th, Carmella and Corey Graves announced the birth of their son Dimitri Paul Polinsky after a 60-hour labor.

During an appearance on the Nikki & Brie Show with Nikki & Brie Garcia, Carmella discussed her plans to come back, and why fans will have to wait a little longer to see her in the ring. The former Women’s Champion said she’s dealing with a drop foot stemming from giving birth back in November.

“Of course. I miss the fans. I miss performing. I fell in love with that and have been doing it for 11 years. More than anything, I want to prove to myself, ‘I can go through this insane experience of labor, delivering, pregnancy, and my body is completely different from the inside out,’ but I’d love to go back and prove that I can. No one else, just to myself.

Unfortunately, I’ve been dealing with, what is called drop foot. I have an injury from labor and delivery and pushing the baby out. I have herniated discs in my back, which push on this nerve that is connected to my right foot. The top of my foot, it’s hard to lift. I’m literally limping around everywhere.

It’s gotten better, but I’ve been wrestling for 11 years, and other than some concussions, knock on wood, never had any injuries. Now, I have a major injury from delivering my son,”
