John Cena and Nikki Bella have been dating since 2012 and got engaged at WrestleMania 33 last year when Cena proposed to Nikki in front of several thousand WWE fans in attendance and the millions watching at home.The latest season of Total Divas—Season 3—saw its trailer send shockwaves among professional wrestling fans as well as the WWE Network audience, as Nikki and John appeared to be calling off their wedding in the clip.
John Cena was questioned by Kathie Lee and Hoda Kotb on the aforementioned clip as well as the widespread rumors of trouble in his relationship with Nikki Bella, in response to which Cena stated that in every relationship one experiences highs and lows with that moment being an extreme low. He added that one has two choices at the time—either jump ship and start another relationship or move forward and try to work through the current relationship.
Additionally, Cena elucidated that he initially didn’t want the moment to be shown on Total Bellas. However, Nikki and Brie Bella lobbied for the moment to be aired.

Cena also addressed Valentine’s Day and possibly marrying Nikki Bella—
“The underlying theme here, guys and gals—especially with Valentine’s day coming up—don’t give up. If it’s something that’s really genuinely that meaningful to you, you will find a way to make it work. And I am determined—through thick and thin—to find a way to make it work.”
While Cena has been wrestling on a part-time schedule in the WWE in the months that followed WrestleMania 33, Nikki Bella last competed in the Women’s Royal Rumble Match a few weeks back.Both Cena and Nikki Bella are expected to be involved in prominent storylines in the lead-up to WrestleMania 34.
