John Cena says only ‘one other person’ knew he was proposing to Nikki Bella at WrestleMania 33

The newly engaged Nikki Bella and John Cena (the 16 time World champ proposed in the ring at Camping World Stadium in Orlando on Sunday, April 2 at WrestleMania 33) are making the rounds this morning to discuss their big news. One place they stopped was at one of Cena’s other gigs, and the workplace of guest ‘Mania ring announcer, Al “Chocolate Thunder” Roker, NBC’s Today.

While there, Cena re-told the story of how he’d actually popped the question back before Nicole’s neck surgery, but he also made a pretty surprising claim. Only “one other person” was “in the loop” about his plans:

You can watch the full interview - where Cena also says he didn’t know his mother would be there until he saw here as he was sliding into the ring (I guess Vince McMahon, who I’m presuming is the “one other person”, invited Mama Cena?) and Nikki tells the hosts she doesn’t have a date for the wedding picked out, but doesn’t want a long engagement - here.

You buying this, Cagesiders? Or does the whole thing prove Miz & Maryse were right about the “fake” couple?
