Rolling Stone magazine profiled WWE superstar John Cena on Thursday. In the piece, Cena got candid about his past and current relationships, including the one with girlfriend Nikki Bella. Cena says that they have major differences regarding marriage, kids, and their dog Winston.
Cena revealed that he doesn’t see marriage in the couple’s future. He admits he’s been married before and he wasn’t capable of being a husband. His marriage ended badly.
“A lot of that was because of my inability to be a good husband, but then Nicole strolled into my life, and that did it,” he says.
Dogs and children are also big no-nos for the professional wrestler.
“Look,” he says, “I know I cannot handle raising a child. It’s like with the dog. My biggest thing to Nicole about the dog was: Love dogs, but I can’t contribute to taking care of one. 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. I’ve been upfront about this. I just have things I need to get done. It’s not negotiable. We’ve been to therapy over it. I don’t think it will ever be over with.”
Nikki’s twin sister Bri has expressed excitement over starting a family with her wrestler partner, Bryan Danielson.
Brie says that having a baby is “definitely not on hold” now that he’s retired.
Brie joked, “If he could get pregnant this would all work out!”
Cena says he’s extremely selfish and stubborn. However, his career is a huge reason he has opted to be childless. Cena has been the WWE’s “it guy” for years. The company has attempted to bring in new guys but nobody can do it like Cena.
