As the news of Nikki Bella and John Cena splitting broke out, the wrestling world went into overdrive. It was the end of a six-year relationship, and it happened mere weeks before their planned wedding on May 5th. Despite the two having nothing but love and respect for each other, the heart-break was felt by both sides (and probably many of us as well).
Here are a few more WWE break ups that hurt. A lot.
Dolph Ziggler and Nikki Bella
Ah, the former perfect duo before John Cena – Nikki Bella came along (more on that in a bit). Dolph and Nikki looked adorable together, but for one reason or another, the relationship did not work out (Dolph’s sharp look and a penchant for ladies might have been a reason, but we have no way of testifying this theory). And as much as everyone felt sorry for the couple’s split, Nikki and Dolph are actually having one of the better post-date relationships in the hectic world of professional wrestlers, even going so far as to using their story on Total Divas, where in one episode, Dolph admitted he still had something for Nikki and even tried to go in for a kiss.
