John Cena & His Girlfriend Shay Shariatzadeh Tie the Knot after Dating for More Than a Year
WWE star and actor John Cena got married in a secret ceremony this week. The star tied the knot with his girlfriend of fewer than two years, Shay Shariatzadeh, in Tampa, Florida.
John Cena, 43, is a married man again! The star and his girlfriend that he’s been dating for more than a year, Shay Shariatzadeh, 31, exchanged vows on Monday, October 12, 2020, in secret.
The “Blockers” actor and the Canadian native were first rumored to be dating last March. At the time, Cena and Shariatzadeh were seen together during a date night in Vancouver, Canada.
RED CARPET DEBUT
In October 2019, the couple made their red carpet debut at the premiere of the film, “Playing With Fire.” Cena, who starred in the movie, explained how important the film was to him because it was where he met his girlfriend.
A few days before that, on October 9, 2020, John Cena tweeted about love.
The wrestler and Shariatzadeh were later seen at different movie premieres. During the “Dolittle” red carpet premiere, the pair made their relationship official by kissing in front of the cameras.

A week after the “Dolittle” event, the Canadian engineer was seen wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger. An eyewitness that spoke to “E! News” at the time, confirmed seeing the ring saying:
"She had a huge rock on her left hand! They were definitely holding hands, that's when I noticed him walk by."
