Although John Cena is known for his tough persona in the ring, the professional wrestler isn’t afraid to be vulnerable.
John and his fiancée, fellow pro wrestler Nikki Bella, haven’t had the smoothest time since their WrestleMania 33 engagement on April 2, 2017.
In the video below, he opens up to Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on Today about his troubled relationship, and he discusses the moment he and Nikki considered calling off their engagement while filming Total Bellas.
John tells the hosts: “I think in relationships, you have highs and lows — and that was an extreme low. And you have two choices: You either jump ship and start a new relationship, or move forward and try to work through it.”
He adds: “This is a tough moment for both of us and it was really cruddy to be in that moment and have people around you. But at the same time, if someone can watch it and maybe it helps them in their journey, then I guess that’s a good reason to capture it.”
In terms of moving on from their rough patch and whether or not the wedding is still on, John reveals, “I believe we both have some work to do and I am determined, through thick and thin, to find a way to make it work.”
