John Cena, Nikki Bella Talk WrestleMania Proposal On ‘Today’ Show (VIDEO)
John Cena and Nikki Bella appeared on Monday’s “Today” show to talk about his surprise proposal during WrestleMania 33. Watch the video below!
After defeating The Miz and Maryse during their mixed tag-team match at Sunday’s WWE event, Cena got down on one knee in the ring and asked his longtime girlfriend to marry him. On Monday’s “Today,” Bella noted, “I never actually would have thought that he would have proposed in front of all those people, but that’s home for us, WWE is our home, it’s where we met, it’s our passion, it’s our life.” She added, “Honestly, I could not ask for it to be any other way.”
This will be Cena’s second marriage following a three-year union with high school sweetheart Elizabeth Huberdeau from 2009-2012, after which he began dating Bella. It will also be a second marriage for the female wrestler, who married her high school boyfriend in a Las Vegas ceremony when she was 20. The marriage was annulled three years later.
Cena and Bella had previously said they weren’t interested in getting married or having children, but the WWE star explained on “Today” why he changed his mind. “I found a strong person I consider an inspiration, an equal, somebody who when I’m feeling down picks me up,” he said. “It took a person that strong to change my view on life.” Watch the full interview in the video below, as well as Cena and Bella’s engagement at WrestleMania 33!
