- “I was intent on fitting into the contours of [John’s] very busy and big life. That was paramount to me, pleasing and keeping him content, not voicing my own needs. He had no idea I wasn’t getting what I needed because I never said anything. Because I assumed he wasn’t willing to make sacrifices, I did not persistently ask,” Nikki continued.
- Nikki was living with him, having signed his 75-page cohabitation agreement that forces her to move out all her belongings “as soon as possible” upon their separation.
- Bella hid that she had been married before she met Cena. “I got married when I was 20. And got divorced at 23, to my high school sweetheart,” Bella said to her family who also didn’t know. “Basically we got married by Elvis. We drove to Vegas, did it.”
- Cena and Nikki announced that they called off their engagement, a year after he proposed during WrestleMania 33. An insider previously told PEOPLE she was the one who pulled the plug on their wedding.

Bella regretted the experience saying: “Even when I started walking down the aisle, I knew this was a huge mistake and how can I get out of it and I couldn’t,” she recalled. “I tried to forget about it but now it’s starting to come up, and I figured you guys have to hear from me before you hear from anyone else.
