We are in the middle of WrestleMania week and that means there are a lot of things going on besides just the biggest show of the year. In addition to WrestleMania itself, WWE presents a variety of other events, including the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. This year’s was a special event as both the classes of 2020 and 2021 were inducted. A line from one of the speeches has gotten some attention.
The Bella Twins were inducted into the Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2020. During her speech, Nikki Bella thanked John Cena for helping her in her career. Nikki thanked Cena for teaching her about the business and helping her become more fearless. This mention received mainstream attention, from People and Access Hollywood. Cena has not responded to the statement.
Nikki and Cena dated for several years and were engaged in the middle of the ring at WrestleMania 33 following a mixed tag team match. The two would nearly marry but ultimately split up, as shown on Total Bellas. The Bella Twins have suggested that they will be back in WWE later this year. There is no word on if or when Cena will be wrestling for WWE again.
There is definitely a history between them. Check out what the two did together and apart in WWE:
