John Cena and Nikki Bella

John Cena and Nikki Bella

An unnamed source told PEOPLE that Cena acted like he was doing Bella a favour by marrying her. Many months later, we now know the answer to that question. "While this decision was a hard one, we continue to have a great deal of respect for one another".

'I asked Nicole to move in with me, simply because we both were living busy lives and I wanted to show her I was ready to be more serious, ' he said in an interview on Today.

Nikki has issued a statement on the Twitter account she shares with her sister Brie.

Her social media activity leading to the breakup would not indicate things going bad because Cena is in every other one of her posts.

The couple called off their engagement after six years together. I can't believe this was past year at WrestleMania. It is between them and not the public.

There have been conflicting reports on who broke off the Nikki Bella-John Cena relationship.

Adds a separate source, "He always put himself first".

Body cam video of YouTube shooter released by Mountain View police
An officer found the 38-year-old in the back of her vehicle just before 2 a.m. on April 3, hours before the shooting. Three people were wounded in the shooting later that day at the YouTube offices in San Bruno, about 30 miles away.

That said, Cena is still one of the biggest Superstars in WWE history and with his acting career taking off, merchandise will certainly sell for a long time. It seems like in the end that was still the truth.

Going down as one of the highlights of last year's WWE pay-per-view event, The Champ proposed to Bella in front of thousands of people in the stadium after winning a tag team match against The Miz and Maryse.

That last part is the most significant. Since Nikki Bella lives so much of her life on reality television the real reasons for her break-up with Cena are likely to come out eventually.

Nikki was even prepared to give up her dream of having kids because she knew John didn't want them.

Special guest: Cena's stipulations read: 'Although I do not wish to be formal, I do not want there to be any misunderstanding regarding your presence at the home as my guest'.

Nearly exactly one week before announcing the split, Nikki had shared pictures of her reacting to an action figure diorama at a WWE event over WrestleMania. "I tried to forget about it but now it's starting to come up, and I figured you guys have to hear from me before you hear from anyone else. I will be the greatest aunt ever".
