John Cena and Nikki Bella are no longer in a relationship. The pair, who got engaged last year at WrestleMania 33, had been together for the last six years.
Nikki confirmed the news via her Twitter account, tweeting the following statement:
We love you all ❤️ N pic.twitter.com/ooACLFXeMv

The pair were last spotted out in public together in the hours before ‘Mania 34 in New Orleans last Sunday, although speculation about the pair splitting was rife. Cena, who lost to The Undertaker in spectacular fashion on the Grandest Stage Of Them All, posted a photo of a Walt Whitman quote to his Instagram page that read: “We were together. I forget the rest.”
Even though the wrestling business is famed for being a cruel mistress on all relationships, John and Nikki appeared to have found the formula for success. Despite being at the top of their respective fields inside the WWE ring, and with their relationship very much in the public eye as part of Total Divas, nothing looked like getting in their way.
Sixteen-time World Champion Cena even appeared on The Tonight Show in March, telling all about their wedding plans: “I was able to let Nicole plan the bachelorette party and she just finished that,” he said.
“And now I’m just kind of on standby to know when it is and where it is, and I’ll be there. I am super excited and I’m going to have to learn a dance. I promised Nicole that I would spend the last half of April learning a dance. It’s not going to be any good, but I’m going to do the best I can. I’m going to put the time in because I want that moment to be special for her.”
