John Cena is having the ‘Worst Day Ever’ after split from Nikki Bella
We all have different ways of dealing with bad breakups. You could go out with friends and treat yourself to a nice meal, with dessert and plenty of wine. You could share some emotional posts on social media, and bask in the loving, supportive comments. Or you could get wasted alone, and send your ex a bunch of cringeworthy messages, begging him or her to take you back! (But you will probably regret this when you sober up in the morning.)
Wrestler/actor John Cena has chosen the second option. Recently he and Nikki Bella announced that their relationship is over and they're calling off their engagement. This came as a surprise to fans, since the couple was scheduled to get married in Mexico on May 5. So much for the destination wedding! A source told People that the couple has had an on-again, off-again relationship for year, and their biggest disagreement was over having children. Nikki wants kids. John does not. It was, like, a whole thing. They couldn't work it out.
On the same day of their shocking breakup announcement, John shared a picture on Instagram to reveal how he's doing. It's an image of The Simpsons' Comic Book Guy saying, "Worst Day Ever!" In you live in a cave and have somehow avoided The Simpsons, Comic Book Guy is a disagreeable loner who declares everything the "Worst [NOUN] Ever!" If you're feeling like him, you're not in a good mood.
The next day, John got deep, swiping an inspiring quote from Kwame Floyd: "It’s not what you go through that defines you; you can’t help that. It’s what you do AFTER you’ve gone through it that really tests who you are." And of course, it's printed in front of a light at the end of a tunnel, which symbolizes how there there is a light at the end of the tunnel. (Easy to miss that subtle imagery.) But hey, we all feel rotten after a breakup, even super strong wrestlers turned surprisingly talented comedic actors.
John's emotional tweets also bear the sign of a heavy heart. "The response to @BlockersMove has been incredible." Whoops! Wrong tweet. Let's try one not promoting his new hit comedy about parents trying to block their kids from having sex on prom night. Here we go! "Hardship, loss, and humility are extremely difficult waters to navigate," tweets John. "But perseverance thru them builds a strength to withstand anything life throws your way." In a follow-up tweet, he added, "Sometimes we must bare the burden of shame and judgement to protect and give to the ones we love."
The replies are full of fans showing John love, and he needs it. According to People's source, Nikki is the one who decided to end the relationship: "[Nikki] doesn’t need a pity proposal, a pity wedding, a pity husband," said the insider. "She’s a phenomenal, tremendous woman." Well, maybe they're both phenomenal and tremendous, just not phenomenal and tremendous together. The good news is, after your 'worst day ever,' the next day can only be better.
