It’s always shocking when an engaged couple breaks up because it makes people wonder what happened? How do you go from wanting to marry that person and spend the rest of your life with them, to not wanting to be with them at all? That’s why when news broke that John Cena and Nikki Bella broke up fans got a little suspicious. Is it possible that the two just realized that they weren’t meant to be together or is this some publicity stunt just to get some more attention on them? It all depends on what the breakup was really about. In this case, apparently it was because Nikki wanted kids and John, well, not so much.
But if it were anything else, then surely, they would have got over any massive humps before becoming engaged. So, here’s what we know. The couple has now been together for six years, yet last month, they broke up and it was a sad affair The problem is that this breakup is insanely public and been broadcast all over Total Bellas. Typically, when a celebrity couple breaks up, they try to avoid the press, so that’s why people are becoming a little suspicious. It’s as if this couple wants everyone to know what happened. They could be hungry for attention like some other celebrity couples that we know, but we are going to delve into all the reasons why this could be fake. Check out these 15 reasons why fans think Nikki Bella and John Cena’s breakup might just be a WWE storyline.
15 They Split Just Weeks before Their Wedding
Sure, there have been lots of times where celebrities got cold feet right before the wedding. That whole “runaway bride” thing isn’t just some myth. But usually we see cracks in the surface prior to a breakup, or a breakup will have at least made sense in some way. But how do two people who seemingly adore one another breakup randomly? There wasn’t even any cheating involved, or at least nothing that has been revealed. Nikki Bella stated that she just didn’t “feel right” about the whole thing. If that’s actually true, we feel really bad for John Cena. It was her call after all not to go through with it and if it’s all real, he must have been crushed.
“If it doesn’t feel right, if there is any type of hesitation, you have to figure it out and not be afraid,” she said of their break-up. “I just didn’t want to walk down that aisle and give those vows and have hesitation or have regret.
The day I give those vows, I truly want to be with that person until death do us part, and I have that hope for John and I. I really do. But right now, I just have to deal with the issues that gave me cold feet.”
14 She Wants to Keep Her Wedding Dress
Now we are super suspicious. Usually, when you break up with a guy, you have to at least consider the fact that you’re never getting married. So, why keep the dress? There are plenty of women out there that decided to “trash the dress” to symbolize that they are done with the man and don’t want something like a wedding dress lying around to remind them of that guy. What’s worse is that she’s keeping it “just in case” she and Cena get married. It’s sounding more and more like a setup.
“I kept it because, honestly, I think that John and I will probably end up together. He is my best friend and I love him.”
Just for the record, she has recently made a statement saying that she’s unimpressed with anyone who thinks the breakup is fake. She told ET Canada, “Sometimes people don’t realize how you can affect them. It’s kind of like when we try to talk to cyberbullies and tell them that you have no idea how you’re affecting people. I’m a human being that literally went through a breakup. Everyone’s been through a breakup and think of how we feel. So mine has just been blown up and people all of a sudden are saying that I’m faking it. You’re now saying that my heartache is fake, and that makes it even harder. It’s just like, what can I do right? That’s just really, really tough.”
13 Fans Think They Need To Up Their Ratings
Maybe they have a lot of pressure on them to up their ratings. The last thing they would want is to end up back on the USA Network. But would this just be going too far? There are a ton of things that the couple could have done to up their ratings. Canceling their wedding seems a bit extreme. Plus, it makes them look awful in the eyes of their fans because who would do something so extreme for ratings. Messing with one’s own wedding seems sacrilegious. As soon as the breakup was announced, fans took to Twitter and unleashed their fury on the writers of WWE. To say that they weren’t impressed with the whole thing would be the understatement of the year. “Honestly, this “fake” John Cena and Nikki Bella thing is getting ridiculous at this point,” said a fan on Twitter. “Who writes this? This makes both Nikki and John look horrible. Great job writers.” “This whole Nikki Bella and John Cena is the definition of fake news,” said another. A third shared this theory: “This John Cena/Nikki Bella ‘thing’ is so fake. I guess E! told them either get ratings this season or go back to USA Network on Mondays.”
12 Nikki Posted Her Excitement About Her Upcoming Nuptials
Not only is this photo super cute and basically shows a couple who are very much in love, but it’s also captioned with, “3 more days,” as if Nikki Bella is counting down the days to her wedding. Would someone really be doing this if she was on the verge of a breakup? Highly unlikely. We know that this couple is super good at “faking” things because of their job, but this picture looks genuine to us. One thing is for sure, this couple loves drama so it’s not really surprising that this whole thing could have been cooked up for publicity. Why else would Bella bail? Some fans do think that the breakup is real, however, because they don’t believe that Cena or Bella would risk getting a bad reputation from a scam like this. “I can’t believe the John Cena/Nikki Bella drama is work because she was too obsessed to even fake break up with him and he wouldn’t hurt his brand by negative reactions if it wasn’t real,” said a tweeter.
11 They Have Been Together For Six Years
We could see if they had just met a few months ago and decided on a quick wedding, then we could understand how someone could get cold feet. But for Nikki Bella to say just weeks before her wedding that she wasn’t sure about things seems odd. You have spent six years with this person, how could you possibly not know by now if you want to spend the rest of your life with that person? That’s kind of why people think that the breakup is fake. These two are actors, after all, and could pull off a fake breakup if they really wanted to. By spreading false news, they are getting a ton of free press right now. A source told StillRealoutous, “I want to go back to the Backlash stuff. I have heard some rumblings that your theory may be correct about this entire situation being a ‘work.’
I don’t have enough to report it or anything, but there have definitely been some people who mutter, who have been whispering similar concerns. So you might be onto something there.
So, I’m just telling you that if it comes out that this was a work, I am giving you credit now that you were the first one to call it.”
10 John Still Wants To Marry Nikki
Usually, when you walk away from your wedding, that’s it, it’s done. Or at least it would be for the one who got left behind. Nikki Bella walked away from her wedding, yet John still wants to marry her? Most guys would see a red flag there and not want anything to do with their ex. But Nikki is out there stating that she still loves John and wants to marry him. So, why didn’t you walk down the aisle? If this was genuinely a breakup, then John should be hurt enough to not want to speak to her again. After all, who’s to say she won’t bail on him again?
“For anyone speculating on like what I’m doing with my life now, I still love Nicole, I still would love to marry Nicole, I still would love to have a family with Nicole. There was an unfortunate set of circumstances where our relationship ended.
There’s been a lot of speculation recently about me being seen in public and everyone’s been like, ‘oh John Cena’s enjoying the single life,'”he said. “No, I was supposed to be married and have a honeymoon over these two weeks. I am in my house alone surrounded by these emotionally strong memories. And every day from 6 to 9 I get out of the house and talk to strangers as social interaction.”
9 They Were Caught Having Coffee
So, Bella breaks up the engagement just weeks before their marriage and Cena is just cool with it? He’ll just wait around until she changes her mind? It just doesn’t make sense to us. They were recently seen having a friendly coffee together which had everyone wondering, what does it mean? Are we suddenly going to get an announcement that the wedding is back on? Wouldn’t that be a shocker? Not too many people would be friendly enough after a breakup to go out for coffee. It’s only been four weeks. Maybe they decided to go for coffee because Cena announced that now he did want to have kids and he suddenly had a change of heart. It should have been good news for Bella, but she felt that he “needed time to think.” We think it’s bizarre that Bella needs so much time to think about her relationship six years later. If you are that unsure of your partner, then marriage should be off the table completely.
“I think when you sacrifice for so long, it’s like, you can give so much and then you kind of get tired of giving. And then someone wants to give it back and you just already feel exhausted.
I definitely have hope for the future, I really do.”

8 They Filmed Their Breakup
Now, that’s a first. not even Kim Kardashian broke up with Kris Humphries on TV. Usually, when a celebrity couple breaks up, they don’t want it splashed all over for all the world to see. There are times when the media and fans have no idea why some couples break up because they are so tight-lipped about it. So, why on Earth would they televise their breakup for all the world to see if it wasn’t some publicity stunt? You will get to see everything on the next season of Total Bellas. Even her sister Brie was surprised they would air something so personal. She has stated that she and her husband would never do such a thing. Maybe that’s because this breakup is totally fake?
“John and Nicole allow the fans to see some very personal conversations, that to be honest, I was mind blown about,” she said. “[My husband] Bryan and I both said, ‘I don’t think we’d allow them to see those conversations’ but they do.
I give them a lot of credit. You get to see where they’re at today and see that unravel.” We’re a little surprised that Brie is giving her sister credit for spilling her personal relationship secrets. We think it’s a great way to end a relationship.
7 Brie Was Surprised By The Breakup
If you were about to leave your man at the altar, don’t you think you would tell your sister, someone who you are super close with? Brie Bella is claiming that she had no idea about the breakup and we find that very surprising. So far, we are assuming the breakup has to do with John not wanting to have kids and because he basically made Nikki think he was doing her a favor by marrying her. “He was making it abundantly clear that he was going into this gritting his teeth the whole way,” the source said.
“Nikki is an amazing, talented, strong, one-of-a-kind woman. Anyone would be lucky to have her in their life — yet John acted more and more like he was doing her a favor by somehow conceding to go ahead and marry her.”
Brie stated that she found this all hard to watch. “I really had to take a step back and allow it and that was really hard on me because it’s my twin. I want to protect her from everything,” she said. “This has been the hardest season to film for me because all I want to do is protect her and keep everyone away, but this is what we do.”
6 It Makes Sense For Them To Be Together
Not only have they been together for six years but they have built a televised relationship that would suffer if their breakup was permanent. They are one of WWE’s most powerful couples so they would both take a hit if they weren’t together any longer. Sure, relationships shouldn’t be forced for work but are we to believe that they had no idea that they shouldn’t be together within a six-year timeframe. Nikki is stating that she just wants to make sure that their relationship is as healthy as possible.
“I just know that a healthy me would be a healthy us. I do have hope for a future, but I know right now I need to work on me.”
It is possible that during the wedding planning, it may have happened that Nikki started having some concerns about the future. “A lot of us that go through the wedding planning process are forced to face all these issues that we have just hiding deep down inside.” Only time will tell whether these two will get back together. If it’s found out that it was all fake, they are likely to lose some of their fan base.
5 Fans Think They Are Already Back Together
Many fans believe that John Cena and Nikki Bella are already back together, they just haven’t told anyone yet. People.com reported that the couple is “basically” back together. A source told the magazine,
“This was never really about ending their relationship — it was about calling off a wedding because something didn’t feel right.”
If anything, it’s being implied that it was Nikki’s fault for continuing a relationship she wasn’t okay with when it came to him not wanting to have children. “It was a wedding that was entered into under false pretences. She was pretending she was okay with not having a kid, he was pretending he absolutely couldn’t and wouldn’t budge on that point. They both got a wake-up call once they canceled the wedding and they both realized they could fix what was broken.” Both parties have stated that they do wish to work things out, so it’s likely that we will see them back together sooner rather than later. The source added, “They never stopped talking. Other than the actual wedding weekend, when they took some space, they have been talking. He has poured his heart out to her, and she was more than ready to take him back once she heard what she needed to hear. He’s been saying and doing all the right things.”
4 She Posted Mr. & Mrs.
Just before their breakup, Nikki Bella posted this photo to Instagram with the caption, “Mr. & Mrs.,” as if she couldn’t wait to become a married couple with John Cena. Then literally a few weeks later she breaks up with him. No wonder everyone’s heads are spinning. Their behavior just doesn’t make sense. Bella knew that Cena didn’t want to have kids right from the beginning, so why is she freaking out about it now. It’s even been said that this breakup will only strengthen their relationship.
“She’ll move back in with him eventually, for sure. But there’s no rush. They know they’re going to spend the rest of their lives together. This time next year they’ll be married, for sure. And then there will be a baby.”
It sounds as if it’s a just a fake breakup and that before we know it, they will be back together and happily planning their wedding once again. It doesn’t help that Cena is in the background telling Kathy Lee Gifford that Nikki Bella is his one and only true love. “I’ve never been in love before,” he said. That wasn’t all, he went so far as to have Gifford in tears. ” If I never have another day with Nicole I will take six years with Nicole over five years and 365 days any day of the week. And I’m so grateful,” he said.
3 They Don’t Want Anyone Poking Through Their Business
Not only is Nikki Bella ticked off that people are implying that she is faking the breakup, but she also doesn’t want people poking around. Like many couples who break up, they usually issue a statement begging the public to respect their privacy. If these two are faking their relationship, then they would really want the public to stay out of their business because if they did just a little too deeply, they might find out the truth. The truth being that they made up the whole breakup to raise their ratings. On April 15, they sent out a statement letting the public know that they were going to breakup.
“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,”
the couple said in a statement tweeted out by Bella. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.” They got engaged just a short year ago so it’s crazy to think that Bella would suddenly have insecurities about their relationship that she didn’t have in the past six years. It’s all just a little convenient for us.
2 False Hope
Would you really do that when you are literally steps away from your wedding? Probably not. If an ultimatum is going to happen in a relationship, it would have happened by now. Not at the moment when you are about to say your vows. It seems as if the ultimatum is more of a publicity stunt than anything else. An insider told People magazine that Bella had been at her wit’s end. “
She never gave him an ultimatum. He talked a really good game about having changed, about having his priorities straight, about knowing what’s important, and that it was her. But as the day got closer, it was like he just went back to who he’s always been — which is someone who puts himself first, always,”
the insider said. “He’s an incredibly dedicated, driven, ambitious guy. And for the longest time, he said he didn’t think he had room in his life for a spouse or kids. It seems like in the end, that was still the truth.” The source went on to say that Cena gave her false hope. The source added, “But in that case, he never should’ve proposed, let alone in front of millions of people. Now she’s heartbroken.”
1 Their relationship could have been for ratings
Would two people really waste six years of their lives just to up their ratings with the WWE? It’s possible. It wouldn’t be the first time that people in Hollywood hooked up to please a publicist. Many people are wondering about this sort of thing because they can’t understand why Nikki Bella is having doubts now when she Cena was always honest about not wanting kids. He told her that right from the beginning. So, their relationship should have lasted a year at most before they called it quits. Why would she wait through six years and an engagement before freaking out about Cena not wanting kids? “Nikki and John wanted different things,” a source told People.
“It’s clear that they had issues over what they wanted from a marriage and from family. She wants kids. Look, it’s his prerogative to not want kids,” the source continued. “But in that case, all of this should have stopped so long ago. They should have broken up after a year.
And really that’s on both of them: She shouldn’t have tried to twist herself into someone she’s not just to please him. And he shouldn’t have given her false hope that he was going to change.”
