One of the biggest rumors headed into WrestleMania 33 this Sun., April 2, 2017, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida is that John Cena will propose to his longtime girlfriend, Nikki Bella, following their match against The Miz and Maryse. Brie Bella came out and said she doesn’t believe it’s going to happen. Now, Nikki herself has weighed in.
"I guess I've just kind of learned to ignore it because 1) I don't want to get my hopes up and then 2) like, you know, when we were on the Today Show this past week they told me there's a props bet going on in Vegas. I'm like, 'there's what?!?' Legit, it's like there's a real bet. It's funny because John's like 'don't... who bets on the WWE? Don't ever bet on the WWE!' And then it was like heartbreak. See, I knew it wasn't going to happen.
"This is the thing, he's been extremely busy lately so I know he hasn't gone ring shopping. There's no way. And, I mean, I don't know. I really have no idea. I think it's just an easy thing to say and guess and be like 'oh, that's the reason why they're doing that.' I don't know."
Of course, if it actually was planned, it would make sense that they wouldn’t tell anyone beforehand. It makes even more sense that Nikki, of all people, would be in the dark on it. If anything, her comments here just add to the suspense.
Thankfully, it’s almost time to find out if it’s really going to happen or not.
