For several years now, WWE fans have been aware of the relationship between WWE personalities Nikki Bella and John Cena. The pairs romance has grown in the public eye, blossoming on Total Divas and Total Bellas. Now the hugely successful WWE Superstar has proposed to his girlfriend – creating another Wrestlemania moment in the process.

The proposal came at the conclusion of the Miz/Maryse and John Cena/Nikki Bella match. The feud has been built around Cena’s reluctance to commit to Nikki Bella, even though the pair claim that their relationship is real.
It’s been rumored for weeks that John Cena would be looking to propose at Wrestlemania, with the pair set to take an extended break from the WWE.
Nikki Bella has been battling a nagging neck injury for several years now. She was forced to seek surgery in 2015 to alleviate the negative effects of the injury. This was successful – with her recovery being covered by the Total Divas programme. She returned to the Smackdown Live brand in the second half of 2016 – feuding with Nattie and Carmella in the process. Sadly for Nikki, reports suggest that her neck has continued to bother her – forcing Nikki to seek another extended period away from the ring.
John Cena will be leaving WWE until much later in 2017. His plate has been full of movie and television opportunities in recent times – reducing the amount of time he’s had to compete in the ring.
We wish to extend our congratulations to the couple, and wish them well into the future!
