Back in April the wrestling world was shell shocked when we found out that John Cena and Nikki Bella broke up after 5 years of being together. It was last year back at Wrestlemania 33 after John Cena and Nikki Bella defeated The Miz and Maryse in a Mixed Tag Team Match that Cena proposed to Nikki in the middle of the ring.
When news broke of them ending their relationship we also found out that the wedding date was set for May 5th of this year in Mexico. You can checkout the article here.
They did recently reunite at the NBC Upfronts but this was after Cena commented on the break up when he recently went on the TODAY Show. Nikki then also commented on Cena’s remarks and in a vlog for her YouTube channel she does with her sister stated that she was staying with Brie and Bryan.
When the news of the breakup came out many believed that it was a work for season three of Total Bellas.
A recent article from People magazine stated that Cena and Nikki are basically back together and only called it quits cause of the wedding. You can checkout the article here

Dean Malenko Reportedly Quits WWE
Favorite of many sadly departs WWE…
Strong sources suggest Dean Malenko has left WWE after 8 years behind the scenes as a producer.
According to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Dean Malenko has left WWE after 8 years with the company. The report doesn’t share any details, but noted that he has been responsible for many of the tag team matches. This is is the third high profile departure of a long-term backstage personality, with Arn Anderson and Road Dogg Jesse James both leaving in recent months.
Greg DeMarco’s Take
Obviously, we here at The Chairshot are bummed. Dean Malenko is one of my all time favorites, as he was one hell of an in-ring technician known for having “ice water” running through his veins. He brought a sense of realism to his matches, and that made up for any lack of size and charisma.
Also, hearing that he was responsible for producing the tag team matches has be double bummed. While it wasn’t a primary focus of the company, when given time their tag team division always kicks ass. No better time than now to hop on the #SaveTagTeamWrestling train!
