Nikki Bella is one of the most popular female superstars in WWE, and even though she last wrestled in the company over two years ago, Bella remains quite popular on social media. Nikki Bella and her twin sister Brie Bella were the forerunners of the Women’s Division for nearly a decade.

Nikki Bella’s last WrestleMania match came at WrestleMania 33, when she teamed up with her then-boyfriend John Cena to take on the ‘it’ couple, Miz and Maryse. Bella emerged victorious along with Cena, and it was followed by an emotional proposal by Cena in front of over 70,000 fans!

The much-publicized engagement became the talk of the town, and the two were set to be married before they called it quits in April 2018, exactly a year after their engagement.

Recently Nikki Bella spoke on the Bellas Podcast, and talked about how she still cries thinking about John Cena. She said that it was difficult for her to move on after the breakup, as she dedicated a lot of time in order to build a great relationship.

“As far as how you get over a breakup, you really have to do the work on yourself. You really, truly, have to love yourself and every day dedicate something to you that is making you better. You also have to let yourself cry. That’s one thing my life coach helped me a lot with, because I still, you guys, get days when I cry about my breakup.”

The former Divas Champion also talked about how she finds a quiet place and lets the emotions flow whenever she feels sad. She feels that this is quite an important part of healing oneself, and thus, she doesn’t try to hold back her tears.

“But we were together a long time, we had an amazing relationship and an amazing bond and a lot of love for each other… but, every day when I need to cry, I let myself cry, because crying is healing.”

“And so, when those tears come, I don’t try to hold them in, I find a quiet place and I cry. Also, on top of it, I meditate.”

Nikki Bella is currently dating her Dancing with the Stars partner, Artem Chigvintsev. Cena has not publicly acknowledged any relationship after his split with Bella last year.
