John Cena Speaks Out for the First Time About Split from Ex-Fiancé Nikki Bella

It was only little over a week ago that John Cena and Nikki Bella called off their wedding after the highly-publicized proposal warmed fans across the United States. That proposal was in view of thousands of arena fans as Cena dropped to a knee inside the ring and asked her to marry him.

She said yes, and it seemed from a distance that they were headed forward in what seemed to be a fairytale wedding. Cena opened up on Wednesday about the details of their breakup.

“It sucks,” he told Entertainment Tonight, sparing no harsh words. “There’s no other way to say [it].”

“I love Nicole with all my heart,” he shared during CinemaCon 2018 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. “And that’s that.”

After their live engagement in April 2017, they had only a few weeks to go before their May 5 wedding. The pair had been together for six years.

“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” the pair said in a statement tweeted out by Nikki. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”

So what brought about the breakup? According to People, was the one who pulled the plug.

“John acted more and more like he was doing her a favor by somehow conceding to go ahead and marry her,” an insider told People. “[Nikki] doesn’t need a pity proposal, a pity wedding, a pity husband. She’s a phenomenal, tremendous woman.”

“She’s good, they call her fearless Nikki for a reason,” said her twin sister Brie Bella, who would have been matron of honor. “She always puts on that brave face. My sister has more strength than any other woman I know, especially Wonder Woman. She’s bigger than that.”
