Despite their recent split, John Cena has said that he still sees a future with his ex-girlfriend Nikki Bella. 


The 41-year-old actor guested on the 'Today' show with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, and opened up about his relationship with the woman WWE wrestler. 

The couple announced that they were calling off their engagement last month, just a few weeks before they were supposed to get married. 

However, when asked by the 'Today' show hosts, Cena said that he still sees a future with Nikki

"It’s up and it’s down. I’ve always been honest with you guys, I also don’t want to ruin the viewers’ morning by giving them a bowl of sadness soup. It’s been up and it’s been down. 


"It’s been incredibly reflective, which is amazing, but it’s very difficult. I had my heart broken out of nowhere — well, for me it was out of nowhere. And anyone who has experienced that knows that it comes with a series of bad feelings. But I’ve looked at myself every day and I’ve tried to evaluate myself and the woman that I love."


The champion WWE wrestler insisted that he is not planning to pursue any other relationship, hoping that he and his ex-fiancee Nikki Bella could still work it out. 

"But for anyone speculating on like what I’m doing with my life now. I still love Nicole, I still would love to marry Nicole, I still would love to have a family with Nicole."

Cena also made sure to clear out speculations of him enjoying the 'single life', saying that this is not the case in real life. 


"There was an unfortunate set of circumstances where our relationship ended. There’s been a lot of speculation recently about me being seen in public, and everyone’s been like, ‘Oh John Cena’s enjoying the single life.’ No, I was supposed to be married and have a honeymoon over these two weeks. I am in my house alone surrounded by these emotionally strong memories. And everyday from 6 to 9 I get out of the house and talk to strangers as social interaction."

Hoping for the two of them to get back together, John made it clear that there was nobody else in his mind but Nikki. 

"I don’t want anybody else. I love Nicole and I’m really trying to support her in her trying to find whatever it is she wants that made this fall apart in the first place."
