Apr 16 2018 by Francis Osborne
"Whereas this choice was a tough one, we proceed to have quite a lot of love and respect for each other", the couple, who had been collectively for six years, mentioned in a press release tweeted out by Bella.
He also hinted at the impact of their respective work schedules, saying "she's super busy and sometimes we don't see each other for months at a time, but when we do see each other, it's our time together".
Cena is clearly broken up about the split, having told PEOPLE on April 6 that he wished the two had already tied the knot. "Love is beautiful, but we've had to come to the realization after being together for five years that love is not easy".
Previously, John had also said he already felt as though he had Wednesday the "Total Bellas" reality star, as it felt "nice" to hear fans already referring to her as his wife. "I do know that we'll have a lovely future collectively as a result of I really like the best way that sounds". If nothing else, I guess this means we're in for an interesting season of Total Bellas. Don't ever think that love is easy.
On an interview with NBC's Today show, Cena said that the two were "gonna move forward and try to work through it" after experiencing uncertainty surrounding their relationship. But we work every day on us.
