Nikki Bella and John Cena announced that they permanently called it quits over a month ago. Other than the issues that played out on screen, Nikki is finally opening up about the other reason she ended her relationship with the WWE champion.
John Cena isn’t just the biggest name in the WWE universe, his acting career is as busy as ever. In fact, during the wedding planning process and the Bella twin’s bachelorette party, the 41-year-old was in China working on another film.
If Nikki chose to marry the busy man, she’d have to choose between being by herself most of the time or giving up her career to be with her husband — something that would not have worked for her.
The reality star told The Post: “One person had to sacrifice their career [for us to be together], but I’m not willing to do that. When people hear WWE, they’re like, ‘The Rock’ or ‘John Cena.’ I want people to hear WWE and think ‘Bella Twins”
The diva is more than just a former champion, she owns a clothing line and wine company with her twin sister, Brie Bella.
John and Nikki were together for almost six years and were engaged to be married when Nikki called the nuptials off at the last minute due to the fact that she wanted kids while her then-fiance didn’t.
Although the “Blockers” star agreed to father Nikki’s children, it wasn’t enough. The wedding was called back on and off again in the “Total Bellas” finale because of deeper issues that the couple had.
It seemed as though they would reconcile when they were spotted together in California but Nikki released a statement shortly after that read: “After I called off the engagement, we tried to work on our relationship to get back to where it was, and in order to move forward with our wedding. After much time and soul-searching alone and together, we have decided to officially part ways.”
Nikki is now focusing on her businesses and being a WWE Ambassador. She’s also decided to hold off having kids until her 40’s.
