These Tweets From John Cena Show He’s Still in Love With Nikki Bella (Plus, Why Everyone Thinks They’re Getting Back Together)
We can’t get enough of John Cena and Nikki Bella lately. From their WWE love affair we all thought would stand the test of time to their emotional breakdown before their wedding day, we feel like we’ve really lived through their heartbreak. And though the two may be separated now, we know they can’t stay away from each other for too long.
Are the two getting back together? Here’s what John Cena keeps hinting at in his tweets, including the one on page 7 that has every fan freaking out. And don’t miss what a source close to the couple has to say regarding a reconciliation (page 9).
1. John Cena and Nikki Bella seemed like the perfect couple
Cena and Bella’s decision to get married wasn’t out of the blue. Bustle explains the couple had been together six years before their decision to split. They met through WWE and began dating in 2012, and the relationship progressed quickly from there.
There were some strange aspects of their relationship that we can’t forget, though, like how Cena demanded Bella sign a 75-page contract before moving in. Nevertheless, it seemed to work out. And in 2016, he revealed he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Bella.

2. After his first marriage, Cena had cynical views on tying the knot
After the collapse of his first marriage to his high school sweetheart, Cena has expressed some seriously negative views on marriage. And though he proposed to Bella and was going to give things another shot, we see now why their engagement may have collapsed.
Men’s Health explains after his 2012 marriage, Cena said he was making “[WWE] my absolute life.” He also mentioned, “I don’t have a family. I tried marriage once and I realized my WWE marriage was the one that was going to survive.”

3. Bella and Cena never saw eye to eye on what their futures would look like
While Bella has expressed her interest in being a mom, it seems Cena wasn’t having it. As he told Rolling Stone, “I know I cannot handle raising a child. … I don’t have the time. And just because everyone else is happy with children doesn’t mean that’s how I have to live.”
This is a stark difference from what Bella said in the past. As she told People, “I do want to be mom. I feel like I’d be missing out.” Unfortunately, Cena directly told her he can’t give her that.

4. After their breakup, Cena posted a photo of a broken heart on Instagram
Though they parted ways amicably, Cena seemed to take his newly single status pretty hard. On Instagram, he first posted a quote attributed to Walt Whitman that says, “We were together. I forget the rest.” And he didn’t stop there. The WWE star, who’s known for his unemotional exterior, posted a photo of a broken heart.
Directly after the breakup, Cena also mentioned that heartbreak really stings. He also said, “Nicole knows I love her and I miss her,” E! News reports.

5. He posts on Twitter that it’s easy to ‘talk ourselves out of something’
Could Cena be having second thoughts on his breakup with Bella? Now that he’s had plenty of time to reflect on their relationship, it seems he may be ready to give things another shot. On May 20, he posted on Twitter, “We tend to have long lists of why we shouldn’t do something. … It’s easy to talk ourselves out of something. Instead, go give it a try!!”
While this is a nice general sentiment, we can’t help but think maybe he’s talking about giving his relationship another go.

6. Cena also posts about ‘what causes people to drift’ and stay apart
Just a few days before his tweet regarding talking yourself out of doing something, Cena posted another clue that a reunion with Bella may be in the works. He posted on Twitter, “Lack of communication is many times what causes people to drift apart, lack of forgiveness is many times what causes people to stay apart.”
Could this be a clue that Cena is willing to up his communication game? Or perhaps he’s even asking Bella to forgive him for his negative comments on marriage and having a family.

This sly tweet has fans sure that Cena must be talking about Bella here. On May 28, he tweeted, “Let’s stop messing around, and start messing around.”
People notes this timely tweet came right after the episode of Total Bellas where the two discuss calling off their engagement. And though Bella hasn’t directly commented on the tweet, her and her twin sister sent out their own message to Twitter reminding everyone to not lose hope because “happiness is around the corner.”

8. Cena’s best advice on Twitter? Listen to your heart
No matter what happens, Cena advises us all on how to achieve true happiness. On Twitter, he posted, “Listen to your ‘heart'” since everybody else “is often just confusing noise.”
We’re hoping Cena’s internal voice is telling him to make amends with Bella. And sure enough, he might be on that path. People notes these two were spotted together post-breakup. And Bella has since mentioned he thinks Cena may have even changed his stance on fatherhood.

9. A source close to the couple says they’ll get back together
They may still be working things out, but one source tells People that “they’re basically back together.” They also mentioned that the couple called off the wedding because “something didn’t feel right,” but it was never about staying apart permanently.
“She was pretending she was okay with not having kids, he was pretending he absolutely couldn’t and wouldn’t budge on that point,” the source pointed out. And it was these false pretenses which halted the wedding. Now, however, the source says, “They both got a wake-up call … and they both realized they could fix what was broken.”
