John Cena is one of the top names in wrestling and in Hollywood. Whether he’s competing in the ring, filming a movie, or walking the red carpet; the media follows him.
As a big-name celebrity, Cena’s personal life is often the focus of the news.
Two years ago, his relationship with fellow WWE star Nikki Bella came to an end when she decided to end their engagement.
After news broke of Nikki’s recent engagement to dancer Artem Chigvintsev, many wondered how Cena was handling the news.
Cena is reportedly happy for his ex and wishes her nothing, but the best.
As for Cena, he’s got a new lady in his life. Cena and his girlfriend Shay Shariatzedah made their red carpet debut earlier this year.
John and Shay appear to be madly in love, and while fans wait to see how his new relationship plays out, let’s take a look at Cena’s former lovers.
This one may come as a shock to fans, but at one time Cena was involved with wrestler Lisa Marie Varon better known to WWE fans as Victoria.
The two began dating in 2002 during their time in WWE’s developmental territory. At the time, Victoria was separated from her husband, and Cena was single.
Their relationship was brief, and Cena moved on with another girlfriend, while Varon tried to work things out with her husband.
The two kept their relationship a secret, however, in 2012 Varon confirmed she had briefly dated Cena.
Cena would have a romance with another WWE female star. This time with Mickie James.
The two reportedly began dating in 2007. At the time, nobody knew about the affair. However, Mickie’s ex-fiancee Kenny Dykstra has since come forward about details of Mickie and Cena’s affair.
Mickie and Cena’s real-life relationship was briefly played out on WWE television. However, the onscreen romance angle was soon cut. Not too long afterward, Mickie and Cena’s relationship came to an end. Their break up was also the rumored reason why she was released from WWE in 2010.
Mickie would later go on to marry wrestler Nick Aldis, with whom she has a son.
When Mickie made her return to WWE in 2016, many wondered how things would be with Cena given their past. As Mickie would later explain, they’re both adults and professionals, and wouldn’t let the past interfere with their current work.
Shortly after his relationship with Mickie James ended, Cena announced his engagement to his high-school sweetheart Elizabeth Huberdeau.
John and Elizabeth married in July 2009. Many of John’s WWE co-workers attended the ceremony including Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
However, John and Elizabeth’s marriage would come to an end two years later. In May 2012, Cena filed for divorce from Elizabeth, just two months shy of their third wedding anniversary.
Rumors swirled about the demise of their union, and as Cena later said his dedication to wrestling and constantly being on the road led to his divorce.
In 2012, a few months after his divorce from Elizabeth was finalized, Cena began dating Nikki Bella.
Rumors of a relationship began when he accompanied Nikki to her high-school reunion.
The couple soon went public with their relationship when they signed on to appear on the reality show Total Divas.
Nikki and John’s relationship was the main focus of the series. The couple often argued about their differing on marriage and children.
Despite Cena’s stance that he didn’t want to get married again or have children, he seemed willing to change his mind for Nikki.
At Wrestlemania 33, Cena proposed to Nikki, which caused a media frenzy. However, a year later, the couple stunned fans when they announced the end of their engagement.
Since then both John and Nikki have moved on and found happiness with their new partners.
