Although the reason for the break up has not been confirmed, there have been allusions to conflict over his decision to never have children, which had led to difficult conversations with Nikki.
‘I think I’ll be snoopy. I will want to know what they’re going through so I can be like, “Hey, one time, this happened to me and this is how I messed it up. Don’t let that happen.”’
In conversation with US Weekly, John explained that he would try to office his potential future children advice. ‘I’ll also be protective because I can see the forest through the trees and be like, “You’re doing it wrong”. But that’s so going to backfire.’
Nikki Bella’s net worth has accumulated to approximately $4 million (£2.8m), according to Celebrity Net Worth. As one of the top 10 most successful Divas, John Cena and Nikki Bella could have become the Jay Z and Beyonce of WWE, according to Forbes.
