She said yes! In what can be a considered a hardcore fairytale ending, John Cena popped the question to Nikki Bella at WrestleMania 33.
The longtime couple have been together for a total of five years, and it was seriously only a matter of time before they took their relationship to the next level. Nikki Bella has wanted to marry John Cena for ages now. In fact, this time last year – in April 2016, Nikki had confided her impatience during the reality show, Total Divas. She had said at the time, “You guys, John finally told me on our three-year anniversary that marriage doesn’t bother him anymore, he wants to marry me, he wants to be married to me.”
“I want him next to me my whole life. I can’t live without him.”
The proposal happened in typical fashion, in the most apparent place that it could ever take place. They had a joint match against The Miz and his wife Maryse. Nikki Bella and John Cena won against the raging couple. As soon as that was done, John got down on one knee and proposed to his future wife. There were tears, hugs and kisses thrown in after the punches!

Last year, Nikki Bella couldn’t make it to WrestleMania 32 due to a neck injury that needed surgery and left her in a neck brace. This year, she was up for it and aimed for the title win, her partner at her side.
Nikki’s sister, Brie Bella is heavily pregnant at the moment and about to give birth, so she was not fighting in this year’s WrestleMania 33. However, she did express her happiness through the twins’ Twitter account. She said, “Happy tears!!!! They always felt married to me but to see it…wow!!! Welcome to the family @JohnCena”
