Now he is wildly excited about their future together."This comes amid speculation that both John and Nikki plan to take some time off from wrestling to focus on other things after last Sunday's match against The Miz and Maryse.

The 16-time WWE champion is scheduled to work on upcoming film The Pact.

Before getting down on one knee and asking Nikki Bella (real name: Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace) to marry him in the middle of the wrestling ring, the WWE star was married to his high school sweetheart Elizabeth Huberdeau.

Bella and Ziggler's relationship reportedly ended by 2011, but in 2015, when Bella was already dating Cena, Ziggler confessed to her that he still has feelings for her. As for Ziggler, some fans are wondering why he has not congratulated the couple when everybody else has done so, at least on social media.

This happened in an episode of Bella's reality show, "Total Divas." It is unclear how true this was though, but Ziggler tried to convince Bella then that he would like to marry her and start a family with her.

At that time, Cena was reeling from his divorce from his high school sweetheart and wife of three years, Elizabeth Huberdeau, and was not intent on getting married or having kids.

He made this clear in another episode of "Total Divas" in which he said that with him and her wanting different things out of life, he felt like "there's this time bomb over my head."Cena upheld the same perspective last year in an interview with Rolling Stone, where he said that "Just because everyone else is happy with children doesn't mean that's how I have to live.""I've been upfront about this.

Garcia asked James about what she expects the atmosphere in the women’s locker room to be like with Nikki Bella present, and she explained why so many wrestlers end up dating one another.

“We’re all adults, and you know obviously this business is what it is, and we’ve all had our share of relationships failed. It’s such a tight-knit thing, that’s the reason why so many people in the industry fall in love in the first place, because you see each other every day, you hang out with each other, you don’t get a chance to… We’re all grown adults and I would hope that, and I’m pretty sure that it’s going to be pretty awesome, because I’m sure that I’m going to have to work with Nikki in the ring and I know that we could do some really amazing stuff.” James also revealed that she had been attempting to make a comeback sooner and made contact with WWE multiple times, but she wasn’t in the company’s plans for nearly a year prior to her return at Take Over. About a year before that I had been doing that a couple of times.

One of the interesting subplots to James return is that she’s on Smack Down – the home of John Cena and his partner Nikki Bella – instead of Raw.

Long before Cena began dating Nikki Bella in 2012, he and James had an informal relationship that grew to be controversial as rumors swirled that James was transferred to a different show once the pair broke up.

Four months after their divorce was finalized in 2012, John began dating his now fiancée Nikki, 33, despite their differing views on marriage and children.
