John Cena gets candid about his split with Nikki Bella and says 'it sucks'
John Cena has finally opened up about his recent split with Nikki Bella. On Wednesday (April 25) when asked in an interview with Entertainment Tonight about how he was doing after the split, the WWE star said that "It sucks." John went on to say that despite the breakup he cares about Nikki.
"There's no other way to say [it]," the WWE star shared. "I love Nicole with all my heart, and that's that." John and Nikki announced their split in a joint statement which they shared on their social media profile. "After much contemplation and 6 years of being together Nikki Bella and John Cena announced today their decision to separate as a couple," the message read. "While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another. We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives."
John decided to pop the big question after the couple won the WrestleMania together. John got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. "I have been waiting so long to ask you this," he said while showing off the beautiful ring he had in his hand for her. "Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace, will you marry me?"
Nikki instantly said yes. A couple of months after their engagement, a snippet from Total Bellas was out and it hinted that things may not be so good between the pair. The video, which was released on Tuesday, January 30, showed the couple crying and it looked like they were discussing their possible future together.
“So we really want to call this off?” Nikki asks John in the clip. Even though it is not entirely clear on what the couple was talking about, it seems like their wedding could be the topic of discussion as the couple was already making plans for their wedding. The news came as a shock because the couple was set to wed in a couple of weeks before they announced the split.
Prior to this, Nikki had often gushed about how John was involved in the wedding planning. At the same time, John often spoke about how people thought that he and Nikki were already like a married couple. Despite the recent break-up, the couple happens to care about each other.
