As you may or may not be aware of at this point, John Cena and Nikki Bella recently broke off their engagement, which became official at WrestleMania 33 when he proposed to her in the middle of the ring after they defeated The Miz and Maryse. It came as a shock to some, but not at all to others that have followed the majority of their relationship on Total Divas and Total Bellas. Early on during the pairing on the reality programs, Cena was insistent that he wasn’t interested in marriage or becoming a father, but Nikki pushed him, and he eventually proposed to her, but it’s not to be, and it has the internet buzzing about the breakup. Neither have really offered a true public statement about it (other than the confirmation statement, we are referring to a statement regarding why it happened).
Sometimes we must bare the burden of shame and judgement to protect and give to the ones we love. #RiseAboveHate— John Cena (@JohnCena) April 17, 2018
That was until April 17 when John posted a message on his Twitter that reads: “Sometimes we must bare the burden of shame and judgment to protect and give to the ones we love.” This is clearly in reference to the breakup, as both have professed they still care deeply for each other, and it’s his way of taking all the ‘heat’ for the breakup to protect Nikki from it. Her twin sister Brie is married to fellow wrestler Daniel Bryan, and she took to Twitter after the break became public to express her love for John, claiming that she’ll always love him like a brother, so it somewhat confirms that this isn’t a messy breakup, and that the two will likely remain friends.
Some people have taken to social media following the split to attack Nikki for playing the victim, claiming that she knew John wasn’t full invested the entire time, and while there is seemingly merit to that argument if you watch the reality programs, this is John’s way of protecting her from those arguments (even though fans will still likely feel that way, while another portion of the crowd will be firmly of the belief that it’s Cena’s fault, or neither).
So what do you guys think? What do you make of the tweet from Cena? Is it anyone’s fault? Do you care about this or the reality shows anymore? Let us know all your thoughts and ideas in the comments below.
