John Cena Opens Up About Relationship With Ex-Fiancée Nikki Bella


John Cena stopped by the set of the “Today” show recently to do what he does best – talk about his ex.

In fact, Cena opened up that he has in fact run into his ex-love Nikki Bella since their breakup earlier this year. Yet, Cena was quick to tell Today hosts, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, that the encounter was, in his words, fine.

Of course, the on again and off again relationship of Cena and Bella is enough to make any head swirl. But for the 41-year-old wrestling great, it’s always been important for him to be transparent.

“As far as my actions are concerned, that was me being honest and vulnerable and genuine and I don’t regret it one bit,” Cena told Kotb and Gifford about the emotional interview he did with them back in February. “As far as my personal business is concerned, I think it should remain personal.”

Back in July, Bella told People magazine about breaking off the engagement with her wrestling love.

“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,” she told the magazine. “After much time and soul-searching alone and together, we have decided to officially part ways. I had a beautiful and loving 6-year relationship with a wonderful man. I have the utmost respect for John, but I know this is what’s best for me.”
