Who’s sick of hearing about John Cena and Nikki Bella? Certainly not us! So, when People.com broke the news that they heard from a source why John Cena bailed on his wedding to Nikki just weeks before it was supposed to happen, of course, we wanted to know the details.
The Cena/Bella split came on suddenly but has since been quite the story. We’ve heard that Cena never actually wanted to get married or have kids but was doing so because it’s what Nikki wanted. Then we heard she pulled away because his career was exploding and it was taking away from their relationship. We’ve heard they’re still together and staying in their house, we’ve heard they filmed the entire breakup to air on their reality show Total Bellas and now we’re hearing, thanks to People.com, that Cena bailed because his wedding was becoming “overly Hollywood.”
A source told People.com that the pressures of his high-profile wedding gave Cena cold feet. They’re describing this like a scene out a Sex and the City movie with the source claiming, “The wedding got bigger than the both of them— originally, it was going to be this small, intimate, family-oriented gathering with just the nearest and dearest. Then it blew up into a televised special and this whole ornate thing and it was just too much.” So a big wedding isn’t Cena’s cup of tea. Got it.

The story goes on to say, “You’re dealing with a guy who grew up poor, without a dad, and with a history of commitment issues— non-stop wedding publicity and a whole big extravaganza was bound to rattle him, and it did. They got away from what made them work, which is the bond that’s just between John and Nicole— not John Cena, WWE Superstar, and Nikki Bella of the Bella Twins. They need to regroup, and they both want to do that.”
This is starting to sound less and less like a breakup and more like a temporary timeout. That would make sense considering the rumors that Nikki has still been sleeping at their shared home while both are present but both are apparently apart. It would be even stranger if the rumors that Cena is already dating another WWE female Superstar are true.
The minute the reports surfaced that the breakup was being shown on their reality show, you had to know something was up. Are they broken up? Possibly. Would it be a shame if this ended badly? Of course. But, this is starting to look more and more like its all for show and if it is, Cena and Bella are getting people caught up in the show which is sure to bring eyeballs to the debut of their new season of Total Bellas.
