John Cena proposed to longtime girlfriend Nikki Bella after they were victorious at WrestleMania, and Monday morning they dropped a ton of new details to Today show's Al Roker, Sheinelle Jones and Gina Rodriguez. Cena had actually been planning to pop the question for a long time. You can see the video here.
"I told the story last night before I proposed to Nicole about, she has been by my side through a lot of surgeries. I know when they put you under anesthesia, you have 20 minutes when you're out of it but you can talk and you don't remember what's going on," he explained, with Bella adding it acts like "truth serum." "They're going to put me under. Ask me whatever you want. You're going to get the answer."
Cena revealed that when it was Nikki's turn for a surgery of her own, he turned the tables. "When they put her under, I made sure to be the last one to wheel her into the O.R. At the moment of no return, I stopped the doctors and I asked, 'Can you hear me?' 'Yes.' 'I have one question for you,'" he recalled. "'What?' You know someday I'm going to marry you?"
While many in the WWE Universe speculated Cena and Nikki's WrestleMania match would lead to a proposal, Nikki claims she was caught off guard.
"I never would have thought that he would have proposed in front of all those people. But that's home for us," she shared. "WWE is our home. It's where we met. It's our passion and our life. For me, it's like, he is my prince charming. And he's saying, I want her to be my queen, at our home in front of our family. And honestly, I couldn't have asked for it to be any other way. It was perfect."
John Cena wasn't the only one who was beyond excited about how everything turned out. Brie Bella also shared a memorable reaction to her sister getting engaged.
