After teaming together at WWE WrestleMania 33, John Cena proposed to long-time girlfriend and Sunday’s tag partner Nikki Bella

Shockingly enough, one of the best feuds coming into WWE WrestleMania 33 actually included an odd grouping. On one end, there was The Miz and Maryse, real-life and on-screen husband and wife. Their adversary for this match were two of the stars of Total Bellas—oh, and two of the biggest names in WWE—John Cena and Nikki Bella.

What made their feud and story leading up to WrestleMania 33 so fantastic was both the pre-filmed segments and promos throughout. Miz and Maryse were ruthless in going after Cena’s odd ways and his hokey-ness as a character. However, they seemingly crossed a line when they started talking about his unwillingness to propose to Nikki.

Because it was brought up on a number of occasions in both skits and promos, many speculated if John Cena would actually propose to Nikki. More importantly, the big question was if he’d do it on Sunday night at Mania.

In true Cena fashion, that’s exactly what happened. After he and Nikki did exactly as they’d promised on SmackDown‘s go-home episode and beat down their foes, John Cena gave her the WrestleMania moment she always wanted with a heartfelt speech. Then he finally asked his long-time companion to be his wife:

She said yes, of course.

Granted, this wasn’t exactly the most surprising outcome. Not only did WWE and Cena tip their hands with this storyline, but then there was Cena’s mom at ringside for the event. All the signs were there.

With that said, this is 100 percent legit and not like many on-screen romances in WWE. They are a legitimate couple and probably just decided to make the moment special. On the biggest stage in their shared profession after winning a match seems like a pretty damn unforgettable moment to do it to me.
