Former World Wresting Entertainment champion John Cena has opened up about his split from his ex-fiancee Nikki Bella and admitted he had his heart broken out of nowhere.

Cena had proposed to Bella at WrestleMania 33 having initially got together in 2012.
He has now opened up about the shock split and insisted he is still struggling to come to terms with being apart from his fellow superstar.
It comes after he showed off his new look, featuring a beard and goatee, to his adoring fans.
“It’s been incredibly reflective which is amazing, but it is very difficult, I had my heart broken out of nowhere, or for me it was out of nowhere,” he told NBC News’ TODAY.
“And anyone who has experienced that knows that it comes with a series of bad feelings.”
Cena also insisted that he is still in love with Nicole and would love to raise a family with her
“I still love Nicole, I still would love to marry Nicole, I still would love to have a family with Nicole. There was an unfortunate set of circumstances where our relationship ended,” he added.
“There has been a lot of speculation recently about me being seen in public and everybody is thinking like, ‘Oh, John Cena is enjoying the single life.’
“No, I was supposed to be married and having honeymoon over these two weeks. It is the first time in 15 years that I have taken a vacation.
“I am in my house alone surrounded by these emotionally strong memories and every day from 6-9 I get out of the house and talk to strangers as social interaction.”
